I have heard that once, that giving sandals or shoes to someone close to your heart is bad luck. I have actually experienced that just this year when I gave my close friend a pair of sandals last year. We were really really close like we're sisters but last February, we really had a huge fight. After several months tho, we have reconciled and we've thought that after we exchanged gifts (sandals & shoes), we've noticed that the old saying about giving shoes is really bad luck. So, what do you think?
