Hello, Have you ever worn the wrong shoes to go office? This morning, when I stop my car in front of my office, I have known that I wore the wrong shoes. I have been shy. I don't know what I can do. If I come back home to change the shoes, I'll be late for working. I have worn them whole day. A pair of them is blue and One is many color! Oh, my God! Have you ever been in this situation?

Actually several years ago, I was in a rush and put on some heel sandals. Though I felt a bit of discomfort, I was in a big hurry. At the time I did not work near home and upon arriving to work I looked down at my sandals and notice they were both black but two different pairs. Yikes! lol Luckily no one noticed and I had on long slacks so not much of the sandals could be seen but I could not wait until I got home as all I could think about was having two different shoes on the whole day. lol

I have never worn the wrong shoes to go to work, but I have worn one right shoe, and one wrong shoe. I think that is more embarrassing than just wearing the wrong shoes on both feet. I looked ridiculous. But what's life for if you don't do stupid things sometimes!

Right. We sometimes do stupid things in our life. If this is not frequently, It's no a big problem.

My work requires me to wear heels but one day I brought flip flops to the office. Luckily my friend brought extra shoes so I had to borrow it from her. I cannot imagine running around the school in flip flops.

It was lucky to you. I couldn't borrow any shoes, so, I wore wrong shoes whole day.

I have never done that but have known people that did. It sounds like there was a big difference in yours though. If you don't walk around much and can hide them under your desk, maybe no-one will notice.

If your working doesn't require to be official,then it is OK. Don't be shy,everyone makes mistakes,if it doesn't influence your work. I once saw babies wore the different colors sockets,I think they're real fashional. Take it easy!

I was shy a bit. But then, everyone were very humor. They teased me and we laughed very much.

I was just amused because it did happen to me, but only in a dream. But it is good that you are not commuting otherwise would be really more shy. It is really okay. It is just shoes. They must of the same heel length why you haven't noticed.

Yes, I didn't move much that day. But it also was not my problem. My colleagues laugh very much, however, they was only feel interesting. They discussed too much about wearing wrong other things.

I have been in your situation and honestly, it bothers me. I usually wear slippers at work because this is what I am comfortable of wearing. It doesn't suit my clothing for the day actually. It bothers me when I have just left the house, but then after a few minutes, I don't mind if anymore. I wear what I want to wear and I wear what I'm most comfortable wearing. So I don't care what others has to say about it. It's my life and no one can tell me what is best for what I wear.

A Pair of shoes - Wearing the right pair
That's very funny! But anyway it looks cool and something new! That is okay for as long as the hills are of same height. If not how will you walk?

I did that once when I went to a school where I had to wear a uniform. It was cold and snowy that I grabbed my boots without thinking. Fortunately they were the right colour and I had a lot of points for always wearing the proper uniform, so it wasn't a big deal.

Oh my gosh! Didn't you notice while on the way? lol. What did your friends in the office say? I'm sorry, but it really is hilarious. You could say you intentionally did it for style's sake.

Oh dear that sounds like some mistake! I often go outside of the house wearing my slippers instead of my shoes, but I always notice when I come to drive the car because they feel so different on the pedals. So that's good, as it means that I am then able to go back inside the house and change them. I pay a lot more attention to what I have on my feet these days, as mistakes such of those annoy me as they take another five minutes out of my day to put right meaning that I might be a couple of minutes late to wherever I happen to be going at the time.

You were creative. You were wonderful. You were smart. You had made a new style and a new atmosphere in your life. This was a new style which you purposely did it.

Really? Oh no! I have not been in that situation before. But I was imagining that using fitflops but it really never did happen to me. I think I saw this one fitflop display wherein the pair of fitflop has different color but still coordinated. If that would ever happen to me and that I really can't do anything but to wear it, I would just tell them that's it my new fashion! Who knows they will follow the next day!

Wow! I have worn the wrong type for specific occasions only in the sense that they weren't much comfortable for walking or standing around, or for a very cold office. But I've never ran out of the house with mismatched shoes altogether! That must have been really embarrassing for you. I'd imagine I would have chosen to come in late. I'd have called my boss to say I needed to get back home and changed shoes - I'd take a photo if she insists!

A pleasant day to you, That situation has happened to me in a different mode. That, I was able to wear a different pair of socks. And during those time, my socks are quite visible since I am just wearing a type of open shoes. Wherein, during those times, a lot of my colleagues gives their comment whenever they saw it. They even told me if that was a new trend to follow. I really feel disgusted to what I am hearing since they also laughed after they give their comments. All I just think of that day, I hope time will run fast so that our office timings will end up.

Yea, it happened to me before but not different in each foot. Instead of wearing shoes, I wore slippers to work. Luckily I had spare shoes in my car.
