The mere sight of the shoe triggers a subconscious impulse to grip that ugly son of a bitch and throw it halfway across the store.
The shoe usually ends up hitting someone on the side of the head or striking the back of one's calf causing injury...like a weapon.

Person 2: "ummm...The Weapons I Think?"
Person 1: "Shit, they are going to destroy us!"
