Should We Wear These Two Foot Long Shoes to Social Distance in Rockford?
If there's one thing I know for sure about COVID-19, it's that people have gotten EXTREMELY creative ever since we've had to adjust our lives to this virus.
I think 2020's official phrase will probably end up being "social distancing". Whether we like it or not, it's our reality. But I think I've found my favorite invention to aid us in social distancing while still seeing our friends and family.
A Romanian shoemaker is promoting social distancing with his latest innovation: a pair of "size 75" shoes that are each about 2 1/2 feet long. His name is Grigore Lup and he's from a cobbler from the city of Cluj.
Here's his brilliantly hilarious invention -
They go for $115 in US dollars. You can attempt to order a pair here. But just so you know, the website is in Romanian. You can however translate from English and attempt to order a pair for yourself.
The shoemaker said the shoes are designed so two people facing one another would be forced to keep a distance of about 5 feet. Which isn't the 6 feet we're supposed to do, but I don't think people will get too close to you in these shoes anyways.
