I was walking near a park by myself, just enjoying some time by myself. I was just kicking some rocks along the sidewalk. I kicked one of the rocks too hard and my left shoe wound up flying off of my foot and into the grass near some skateboarders. I was hopping on the grass towards my shoe. One of the skaters saw my shoe, picked it up, and started throwing my shoe around with his friends. By the time I got there, they were kicking my shoe around. One of them noticed that it was my shoe and said, “Looks like its our shoe now.” I tried to get my shoe back, but they tripped me up and I fell onto the grass. One of the skaters tried to grab my other shoe, but I managed to shake him off. As I was getting up, one of them grabbed my socked foot and tried to pull my sock off. They only got it halfway off before they let go and ran. off with my left shoe
Later in the day, I saw the same group of skaters with my shoe as I was leaving the park. I tried asking for my shoe again, to which they shoved me to the ground again and just ran off. I pretty much had to spend the rest of the day getting back home and walking around in one shoe and my white crew sock.

I decided to spend a day walking about the city. I took a train north to the next stop and was going to walk back to my apartment, so it would be like 2-3 hours. While I was on the train, I had my feet stretched out along the seats. There was this kid across from me, probably around 18-19, who occasionally glanced at me. Then out of nowhere, he grabs my right shoe and starts trying to pull it off. He pulled so hard to the point I fell out my seat. He took my right shoe and ran off just as the train stopped. Luckily this was my stop too, so I got off the train, but the kid was nowhere to be seen. So I started the long walk back in one shoe and my white sock.
Along the way, I decided to stop into a game store to pick up a game. I paid for it and as I was about to leave, the cashier stopped me and yelled out “People normally wear two shoes, not one. Wheres your shoe at”? I told him someone stole it, to which he said, “Well you look stupid”. He started laughing at me as I walked out.
I had to cross the parking lot of a supermarket, and then another neighborhood before I got home. I figured cutting through the parking deck would reduce my chance of people seeing me, so I hopped towards the elevator to go to the lower deck. I thought I was gonna be the only one until a guy rushed into the elevator at the last second. As we were riding down, he looked down and saw my shoeless foot. He pointed and laughed and said, “Hahahaha you only have one shoe.” As the door opened, I started to hop out when he said, “And youre hopping too? You look like a bum,” as I slipped and fell as he was passing by. Had to continue the rest of the way home alternating between walking and hopping.
