I've been seeing a new trend lately. People who own black shoes, wrap gray tape around one of them. Why on earth would anyone do this? I don't get it at all! Movies I have seen where this happens in, is: Home Room & Dead Hate The Living I've seen about 4 other movies in which a character who has black shoes, has gray tape around one of them, but the titles of the films escape me right now. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY THIS IS DONE?
