Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.
We're gaga for quirky footwear

Awards shows often let us look deep into the sometimes twisted soles, if not ankles, of celebrities. But some famous feet don’t need a red carpet to show off peculiar fashionista flair. Check out these favorites.
Follow the photos below, from left:
High heels, sans heels. Confusing? You be The X Factor judge’s judge.
We hope the Queen of Pop has a permit for these
Girls aren’t the only ones with odd foot fashion; Elton John rocked these platform boots back in the ’70s.
These way-over-the-knee Converse are way over the top, even if your parents are Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.
This list wouldn’t be complete without Lady Gaga; her signature McQueen armadillo heels add 12 inches to her 5-foot-1 frame.
Sometimes Christian Louboutin blurs the line between couture and medieval torture devices. Or maybe these are for soccer.

You may still love to hate them, as do the 1.7 million members of an anti-Crocs Facebook page, but the New York Times reports the company that makes the squishy lightweight clogs is continuing to offer new styles but is now paying tribute to the ugly slip-on that made if famous and then infamous. In honor of its 10th anniversary, a Crocs ad pictures a new lime green and turquoise peep-toe flat sole to sole with the original clog and the text “new style on the outside, same comfort on the inside.” By the way, haters, that ugly clog still accounts for 45 percent of the company’s sales.
