I don't know.... perhaps this was done so long ago, it was before they became so fashionable??
I find ti curious because at least here in France, they are very expensive, and are especially popular with the people in the medical field (who
discovered them at work, they are the shoes used in hospitals because they can be repeatedly disinfected, and allow the feet to breathe and not get
sweaty) and that carried on into their life outside work.
The ones we know do not fit this profile at all- they are all very active and intelligent people.
I only wear them at home, and won't wear them in public because they make my legs and feet look unattractive, I think, and I am very superficial that
way. I would guess it is the very superficial people who are deeply concerned with appearance (not those who feel their value is intellectual) who
shun those comfortable-but-ugly shoes!
(and are superficial enough to judge the value of a mind upon looks too, like the author of this "study" )
