This Japanese Woman Wears Pigeon Shoes, And People Have Questions

Japanese shoemaker Kyoto Ohata likes to wear pigeon-themed shoes, and people can't make up their minds about it. Some of them love it, others hate it, but everyone turns their heads when they see Kyoto, and think "But why though?"

While Kyoto's taste might look peculiar, she designed these shoes for a very nice reason. Her usual route is always filled with pigeons, so, not to scare them, Kyoto decided to make DIY pigeon shoes as a disguise. Pretty sweet, right? Borderline creepy, but sweet.
