poor choices

i work in the awesome world of downtown albany, i walk past the same faces on a daily basis and happily exchange pleasantries, its good enough and i have no real problems, until lunch comes around

i leave the office and what am i faced with, female state employees (notice i didnt say workers) wearing white running shoes, they're everywhere and its like the plague, i travel to nyc once in awhile for business and i never see anything like that there, does this happen in other cities? why are the ladies of albany so dead set on sporting super white sneakers all around the streets, i dont see men doing this

im sure the logical explnation is .....well they like to get out and get some exercise, eff that, if anyone exercises properly they sweat.....and wouldnt be coming back to work

high heels arent the required attire for being employed by the state, but for the love of florida, wearing a new pair of brite white keds over top of some taupe pantihose sure isnt cutting it either

  1. I have answers! They wear the heals inside and the sneakers outside. I think this kind of thing was popular during the 80s-90s. I used to live on long island and would see the ladies with their sneakers on the railroad heading towards the city. It was a matter of comfort for their commute. I've noticed it also on my way to work in the morning ( I don't work in Albany) . I say buy these ladies a nice pair of flats and get them a date with tim gunn.
