Photo and story stolen shamelessly from one of my favorite blogs, Admiral Cod's post yesterday.

Tasseled Loafers: Shoes of the Counter-Revolution
"In France, the tasseled loafer makes its own peculiar political statement. John Vinocur, the executive editor of The International Herald Tribune, said that the shoes were worn, actually flaunted, by young rightists in the mid-1980's who wished to demonstrate their distaste for the Socialist Government...To them, the preppiness of the shoe represented American prosperity and free-market conservatism. Thus, it became part of the battle uniform of the young soldier of la contre-revolution."The Politicization of Tassel Loafers, Neil A. Lewis, New York Times, 03/11/93
