Tattler Magazine: Off with her.. Shoes!
The author of this post complains because she was asked to remove her shoes before entering the fitting room in a high street fashion store.
I have not heard of this happening outside of Japan, where it is the norm. It is a really sensible idea. Have you ever noticed that the carpets in store changing rooms are never that clean?
People are going to take their shoes off in the fitting room, why not have them remove them before?
