OriginEdit

This pair of dress shoes was collected from an unknown wedding on May 13th, 1955 in Michigan.

The phrase "cold feet" means a loss of nerve or confidence, and is typically applied to feelings of regret or fear when one is about to get married.

EffectsEdit

Wearers of these shoes will lose all ability to stick to any and all commitments, gradually growing in magnitude the longer they are worn; this applies especially to anything related to romantic endeavors, such as weddings.

Additionally, the shoes will decrease the temperature of the wearer's feet over time, which may result in frostbite.

TriviaEdit

  • In 1955, May 13th was a Friday
  • In common wedding superstitions, May is considered a bad month to be married in (generally considered the most inauspicious). This is because in Pagan times, the start of summer was when the Festival of Beltane was celebrated with outdoor orgies. This was therefore thought to be an unsuitable time to start married life. In Roman times the Feast of the Dead occurred in May. The advice was taken more seriously in Victorian times than it is today.
