"flapping insolently". That hits home, I have a real aversion to the unstrapped, untied, untongued shoe fad. (If untongued isn't a word, it should be.)

Thanks Li, in a novella of mine I wrote about the spaghetti of deliberately untied laces, the tongue being cut out and socks being cut off above the ankle! They were all expressions of the teenager's emotional state

rude flapping straps - conjures up a very strange image in my mind ^_^

Maybe they'd enable flight if she'd strap them correctly.

How can you possibly fit so much into 25 words!?! It's uncanny!
