A local man who’s recently taken to wearing strappy slingback sandals must be doing so because he doesn’t have any toxic mates who enjoy putting shit on people for what they wear and do.

Speaking to The Advocate today over a mocha mug with one, Betoota Heights gentleman Fraser Frost playfully showed off his footwear to our reporter.

A few other patrons at the Pisse Dans Ma Poche Cafe on Rue du Branlette looked at Fraser then looked at our reporter, some with shock and others with displeasure.

“Nope,” smiled Mr Frost.

“Nobody’s said anything. At least about the sandals, anyway.”

The 35-year-old explained that none of his friends have pointed them out, to which our reporter said he must have some nice friends because if they wore them out on the tiles of a Thursday evening, there would be some very distasteful comments being made about them.

However, Fraser did say that some people look at them and then look at him with a confused look.

“Older people are used to seeing sandals on young men these days,” he said.

“I think it’s a generational thing, you know. You couldn’t have worn Birkenstocks back in the 70s. They would’ve thrown a molten cheese fondu on you before they’d let inside their home. Thongs are different. Every mouthbreather from Byron to Bunbury has a pair of thongs, as does every blue-haired leftie with shit all in their face. Like those piercings and whatnot,”

“But I’m picking up what you’re putting down. I’m not of that life, I’ve just got Mediterranean heritage. Something a lot of people like you don’t understand and probably won’t.”

More to come.
