    My friends and I very quickly noticed the obsession with pointy men's shoes in Russia. Shoes (as opposed to sneakers/trainers/tennis shoes, whatever you want to call them) are fine, they just don't have to have to be so long and pointy!

    O каких 'pointy shoes' вы говорите? У кого-нибудь есть ссылка на фотографию таких туфлей? Я сам не могу отличить сапоги от сандалий.

    Must be a perception thing because I dont think he counds like a badass (unless being pedantic is the badass way these days ) and I dont think he's made you look stupid. Only you can do that.

    Yeah but in many parts of the world very few driving laws have been invented yet and the road death toll is huge. :P

    Yes even I, the great DDT has resorted to wearing those ugly pointed shoes. I had to do it I tell ya.......if I wanted to go incognito and avoid signing all those autographs that the girls want from me. Sometimes it is so hard being me!

    So that's why you wear pointed shoes then - to compensate for your short toe nails, right? Wait a minute, could it be that you're thinking that pointed shoes will make your feet look bigger? You may be wasting your time there as modern girls generally know that guys with big feet don't necessarily answer the stereotype

    are yours so long that they hit the mat?
    Mine aren't but I figured yours were. I thought your toe nails needed that extra room that pointed shoes offer. I don't wear pointed shoes, remember?

    they are not pointy, they just fit the curve of my feet. So I dont go around saying i have big feet to show something else. Maybe people who are insecure in their masculinity might.[/img]
