A woman claims to have had an “a-ha” moment after realising the morning after a night out that her shoes had been hurting her because they were on the wrong feet.
Ayleigh McGee, from Glasgow, dressed for the night out in a black dress paired with snake print heels and a matching handbag.
But after getting ready while drinking, she accidentally put her shoes on the wrong feet – causing an evening of pain.
“I wasn’t drunk before I put the shoes on, but I’d had a lot of vodka when I left so I didn’t notice [what was wrong],” she tells Yahoo UK. “I normally wear very high shoes but these were more uncomfortable than usual.”
It was only the next morning that McGee realised her mistake, according to a tweet shared by her friend Georgia.
The post revealed her friend had been “moaning all night” about the offending shoes.

It doesn’t look like anyone else noticed – or if they did they certainly didn’t let on.
“I’m not sure if anyone else noticed [the shoes] were on the wrong feet,” says McGee.
While the incident might have resulted in some short-lived foot pain for McGee, it’s a relatable story which has certainly given the internet a good laugh, garnering 33,300 likes at time of writing, and many light-hearted responses, with people commenting “am howlin” and “Something I’d do”.
McGee has certainly seen the funny side too, responding with a series of crying-laughing faces emojis on her friend’s tweet.
This isn’t this year’s first outfit mishap of this sort. Last July, a student suffered a swimsuit mishap after accidentally putting her one-shoulder swimming costume on upside down.
Lyndsey Brown, a fashion student, was partying with friends in Ocean Beach club in Ibiza when the mishap occurred.
Telling Twitter about the embarrassing faux pas, she explained she went to the toilet midway through her partying – and returned wearing just the tiny shoulder strap of her swimsuit on her bottom half to protect her modesty.
