What if all shoes were the same? No more choices just a simple black shoes. No more heels, or boots or tennis shoes. And what if those plain black shoes only came in one size? That would be great for me if all shoes were size 12 unless I wanted to go for a jog, work a construction job, dance in the ballet or muck out a stable. But what if you wore size 9 or size 15? Every day you would be faced with the unenviable task of shoehorning your way into shoes way too small or stuffing toilet paper in the toes to try to make them fit. Soreness and blisters would become a daily reality. Also, because there was only one option and no competition, the shoe manufacturer could charge want ever they wanted and raise prices indiscriminately regardless of the pain and cost.
