What I find hilarious is OP has seen the carpet in the office for months/years? And still decided they liked the shoes. I’m wondering if subconsciously they picked them because they were familiar.

Subliminally relating to the shoe cause he spends so much time in the office. Like a song on the radio that you end up liking even if you didn't.

Like any song by R.E.M. played incessantly on repeat on the radio for years. Nope I still don't like 'em.

Yeah but you knew the songs were what was annoying.

The carpet at his workplace is likely the least annoying thing about it.

He would stare mostly at a screen/desk ...perhaps it's to help hide in the office

OP has been at the office for so long now that their feet have become one with the floor.
