The Hobbit has broken box office records and, as with every hit movie, those in the know have already begun reflecting the trends from the big screen in the way they dress.
Here’s one example:
Sandals, heels, flats, espadrilles, flip-flops, boots, sneakers, and those weird running shoes that are like gloves for your feet are all definitely “pre-Baggins.” No more spending hundreds on a single pair of shoes! Walking around barefoot is not only economical, but also good for your back, or something probably. Maybe you’ll step in dog shit, maybe you’ll step in broken glass, but beauty is pain (and animal feces).
