Came across this shoe shop in Mexico while on holiday last week. My initial thought was that this must be a rather unfortunate translation of a Spanish name. On further research, however, have discovered this company was founded in America and that they’re perfectly aware of the rather gross double meaning (the fungal foot disease answers to the same name on both sides of the pond), and it’s supposed to be funny – mmm, the joke’s a bit lost on me to be honest! Loving the name of the shoe shop I walked past the other day on the Kings Road in London though – R Soles – now that’s deliberate and amusing!
