I'm with Joe Public on this one. If I see shoes on display, then I'll try them on. What's the difference between putting your smelly feet into a display pair, or putting your smelly feet in a pair the shop assistant has brought out from the back. None whatsoever. And I'm by as heck gonna try those shoes on before I buy the buggers.
If I've ever shopped in Torquay, which I have once or twice, and you and I have come face to face, dude, I was probably one of the very rude ones.
