This afternoon, photos surfaced of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston making out on a beach. This is shocking news, not just because Swift broke up with Calvin Harris (née Adam Wiles) mere weeks ago, but also because the pair were seen dancing together at the Met Gala back in May. But amongst all the questions this information begs us to ask, the most pressing is this: Where are Taylor Swift’s sandals?
While British tabloid The Sun has the photo exclusive, the Twitter account Taylor Swift Updates shared some of the photos, in which you can clearly see that Taylor is wearing brogue-like oxfords (or perhaps oxford-like brogues?) on a beach.
I mean, just look at this shocking choice of footwear:

Yes, sure, this is all very exciting information about Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston getting together. But back to THE SHOES:
Seriously, do any of you people own sandals? I NEED ANSWERS, HIDDLESWIFT!
