Foot Locker Coins Term "Butter Shoes" for Girls Who Wear Clogs

Foot Locker's hilarious new commercial coins the term "butter shoes"—a spin on "butter face," as in "Everything's hot, but her face." The footwear company's take is that guys hate clogs and prefer it when girls wear sneakers.

It's clearly a humorous tongue-in-cheek ad campaign, right? Unless Foot Locker really think that girls and women choose their footwear based on what guys prefer. Or that Sandy didn't look amazing in her post-makeover clogs in Grease.
