NATIONAL TWO DIFFERENT COLORED SHOES DAY
Each year on May 3rd, National Two Different Colored Shoes Day encourages us to celebrate our uniqueness and put it on display. This day stands out from the other 364 days of the year. Wear two different colored shoes and see where they take you.
You may discover you walk to a different beat. Or perhaps you take a road less traveled. Maybe, just maybe you’ll see the world a little differently. One foot might ache more than the other. The left foot might be a little more colorful, too. Is one dressed snazzier than the other? Maybe. It may be likely you’ll get a few blisters, sideways looks, and a chuckle or two.
But what this day sets out to demonstrate are our differences and that they should be celebrated, not mocked. Two different shoes? What do they mean in the grand course of humanity? That one foot was rock and roll and the other was country? Not really. But it does show that some of us bear more wear than others despite being quite colorful. Some of us hide our soles a little deeper. And others still have a firm arch.

NATIONAL DIFFERENT COLORED SHOES DAY HISTORY
National Two Different Colored Shoes Day was created by Dr. Arlene Kaiser. Kaiser created this day to recognize and celebrate human diversity. According to Kaiser, “The simple act of wearing two different colored shoes proclaims your individuality. By taking this ‘positive risk,’ you can demonstrate your willingness to be different, and show your appreciation for the unique people in your life”.
