Feet dangling

feet dangling over a pool

The selfies of dangling feet, immersed in the waters of the sea or of a swimming pool, on the beach or swinging from a deckchair or a sunbed, multiply exponentially on our social walls with rising temperatures and the arrival of summer. Have you noticed it? This bizarre social phenomenon that exploded this summer has started from VIPs, nails art and Instagram, it quickly became a mass ritual. But what drives us to take a snap of our feet and post it on social media? Do we do it because it represents the most immediate holiday metaphor? Or is it about latent fetishism? Or, more trivially, is it just a passing trend? Posterity will judge!
