TODAY IS WEAR BROWN SHOES DAY
When you look into the closet by your front door, what do you find? A myriad of shoes in reds and whites, blues and blacks, and even the occasional green.
But how many brown shoes do you own? We’re willing to bet it isn’t many, and that’s a shame! Wear Brown Shoes Day encourages you to add a new shade to your polychromatic footwear, a delightful shade of brown!
How to celebrate Wear Brown Shoes Day
It’s right there in the name! Wear your best browns on Wear Brown Shoes Day. Do you perhaps not have brown shoes? What a horrible shame! A tragedy! A serious problem!
Or is it, perhaps, an opportunity to get yourself down to the local shoe dealer and pick yourself up your new favorite piece of footwear? That’s what we thought! So on Wear Brown Shoes Day get yourself down to the local cobbler and pick yourself up the best new pair of brown shoes you can find!
