And not quite as off-topic The Manolo posted about a National Geographic feature on shoes, both modern and ancient. The photos are brilliant. There was some news a while back about some shoes found in a well or something. Has anyone ever done an archaeology of footwear?

"You can't go wrong with a nice fitted black leather boot with a four-inch heel."

Errrrrr, no comment.

Update: Here's something on hidden shoes.

And apparently it's a widespread phenomenon.
