It has that wonderful ring-of-realism.

That being said, I love the things that Lois does with footwear in the Vorkosigan novels. I
haven't made notes - but we have the obligatory bedroom slippers that Cordelia wears when escaping
Beta Colony for Barrayar.  Or the military boots that are the first thing Cordelia sees of Aral.  
 And I seem to remember something exceptionally cute on Taura's feet at one point, though I can't
recall what.
