weekend in Kuwait, part three: shoe snobs

Posted by adiamondinsunlight on April 8, 2008

Welcome to Kuwait, said the immigration official when I handed him my passport for an entry visa. Are you here with KBR?

Um, no. In fact – definitely not. But the line of visa-seekers in front of me did have a number of contractor-type middle-aged men, so I can see I suppose how he might have lumped me in with them. The absence of “desert boots” from my Manhattan-black outfit might have been one indication, but of course not everyone is as besotted with footwear as I am.

But clearly there are some people in Kuwait who do appreciate a good shoe, and are not afraid to celebrate their snobbery:

My kind of store – I’m city, and I’m definitely snooty!
