Leather Shoes Banned In Indian Schools.

Hurrah! Wish it had happened in our time. Of course back then in 80s India, we were not aware of the environmental implications or the colonial heritage of the leather shoes we wore. But we hated them all the same – they were a hideous fashion statement, heavy as wooden blocks, stank from sweaty feet, and we lost a few hours of our life that are not coming back from polishing those stupid things to a shine.

So good on the ICSE for making the call. (Full post at Telegraph)
