On Friday evening, I was wearing my black/grey/orange KSOs and standing at a service station filling up the car with fuel. A little lad came round to my side of the fuel pumps and said,

"Hey! What's wrong with your shoes?"

"There's nothing wrong with my shoes." said I. He then wandered off.

I've tried, "hey, your shoes are stupid," or "hey, nice shoes."  The reaction is either shock or the obligatory "thanks."  I've even had to wiggle my vff's at them for them to realize the irony/joke. 
People tend to not want to interact with other people very much any more.  Shocking someone into a conversation can be a good thing Smiley

I've noticed the same thing. I usually say 'nice shoes' to get a conversation started, but everyone feels afraid to talk about their Vibrams.
