About National Two Different Colored Shoes Day
National Two Different Colored Shoes Day, celebrated annually on May 3rd, was started by a professional public speaker to celebrate the diversity of humanity.
The holiday was started in 2009 by Arlene Kaiser, a professional public speaker and member of the Screen Actors Guild who is known for wearing mismatched shoes when she gives her presentations.
The official website for National Two Different Colored Shoes Day calls on celebrants to wear mismatched footwear every year on May 3.
The day is "set aside to recognize and celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of humanity," the website states. "Where the simple and lighthearted act of purposely wearing two different colored shoes demonstrates the courage to 'take a risk' and step outside of ones daily routine."Find out more
