one stout woman said to the other stout woman
all their feet clap clap clapping
in cheap shoes on the concrete stairs
and if one stout woman had any more words for
the other stout woman
I wouldn’t know because they were
by those clattering shoes

I recently spent some time in proximity to a woman who was wearing shoes that made the noise you describe. It was driving me nuts just for the period I was near her. I don’t know how people cope with that noise all day.
Yes, clack clack slap slap all day long. I would go nuts too. I’ve retired shoes for bad floor sounds in the past. Too bad I can’t do it for others…
I had a pair that did not do well with hardwood. I was invigilating an exam when I discovered that they made a quacking noise when I walked on wood so I had to kick them off and walk around barefoot.
OMG. I love that. A quacking noise.
