Hey there! :D Here's a keyword for you.... Crocs. (Yes, I do mean those God awful Satan shoes.)
-bows down to great headcanon submitter-
noooooo not the crocssss XD
- Yuuri owned pretty simple red crocs.
- Yuuri loving them because they were so comfortable and practical and easy to wash.
- He didn’t realise how god awful they were, and just thought it was some weird accident that he kept finding them put out with the garbage (Mari did it, she tried, okay?).
- The triplets hiding the crocs on numerous occasions, until Yuuri thought it was the bright colour that was attracting them, so he stopped wearing them to the Ice Castle.
- Victor seeing Yuuri in them for the first time when they went out for dinner and actually clutching his heart and stumbling back into a wall in terror as he realised his crush was a huge nerd - and not in a cute way this time.
- Victor telling Yuuri outright they were horrible, but Yuuri assuming he was just being overly picky about fashion.
- Yuuri coming home to the big bonfire of his clothes and being extremely confused and Victor holding his gaze as he tossed the red monstrosities onto the top of the burning pile.
- Yuuri finally giving in and having to admit that maybe people really did hate them.
- Yuuri giving Victor a pair of fluffy pink ones for Christmas one year as a joke, and Victor crying until Yuuri threw them out.
