...or calf/thigh-length lace-ups...

Velcro must be the least sexiest thing ever invented.

Ah yes - not enough toes and no allowance for the webbing between them  ;)

Actually, I think Norfolk, and most of the people I've met there are quite pleasant.

Tell me please why, when you go to Google maps and search for "Norfolk, UK," the little balloon indicator points to a farmer's field?

Because that is pretty much all it is, one big field. :)

Actually I love Norfolk because it is so flat, big long skies, perfect!

This footware is more suited to rural Norfolk  :) ...

These are equally rural but less creepy ...



The mini horseshoes are detachable, apparently.

In the concrete floor of my barn there is an imprint of a child's feet.
Both have the arches on the right side and all total there are 11 toes.

Double-dipping the same foot and toes may be the explanation.

I think wearing Vibram five fingers with gloves could be a fashionable attraction. But I guess it will not suit for any formal occasion. There are still lots of choices in he market as you can see.

Looking at the rodent footwear I can get the rodents in size 10, how many thousand do you want, they are getting too big to fit the Tomcat, have to give the blue food in a drainpipe now.

Sounds like you may have an infestation of capybaras.

I had a few feral cats around ( 5m and 10m - the closest you can come to them) but the Sotho's ate them, as well as a few of the rats.
