I am forever thinking footwear can't possibly get more stoopid. But every time I make that assumption, I'm proved wrong.
In Mexico, the latest craze is shoes -- actually, cowboy boots -- that are three feet long and pointy. It's kinda like Gunsmoke meets Aladdin.
“At the beginning I didn’t like them very much, but the girls wouldn't dance with you if you weren’t wearing pointy boots,” said university student Pascual Escobedo, 20, his own covered with hot pink satin and glittery stars.
Dang. And to think I just wasted $6 on sneakers at Goodwill.
But you wanna know my real reaction?
