National Two Different Colored Shoes Day

That is right we are all different and diverse. God loves His children. It doesn’t matter what color you are. Reminds me of the song we sang as a child. Jesus loves the little Children of the World. Red, Yellow, Black and White, they are precious in his sight. As Christians we are to love one another.

National Two Different Colored Shoes Day #TwoDifferentColoredShoesDay

This day was invited by Dr. Arlene Kaiser.  Kaiser created this day to recognize and celebrate human diversity. I am not sure when the holiday was first started though.

“The simple act of wearing two different colored shoes proclaims your individuality. By taking this ‘positive risk,’ you can demonstrate your willingness to be different, and show your appreciation for the unique people in your life”.


This day is held annually on May 3. So put on mismatched shoes (two different color shoes) just like you did on the World Down Syndrome Day – Wear Odd Socks – Lots of Socks

It is very simple, where a red shoe and a blue shoe together. Maybe a black shoe and a brown shoe. The possibilities are endless. You can see some two different colored shoes in this collage on this blog post. Maybe get wild, wear a flip-flop and a boot. Just express yourself and being different!

Come on ladies! We know that you have a huge closet full of shoes to pick from!

I am so glad we are all different. There is no one else like me! I don’t think the world could handle two of me! The world would be very boring if we all were the same.
