Happy Foot/Sad Foot just became wearable fashion

If you haven't heard of the Happy Foot/Sad Foot sign... well, welcome to LA. The iconic advertisement—portraying a bummed-out, broken foot on one side and a super-psyched, sneaker-bedecked foot on the other—has been spinning circles in front of a podiatrist's office on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake for 35 years.

Some locals use it as an oracle: See the happy foot first, you're going to have a good day. See the sad foot, it may be better to just stay home. But now we can take destiny into our own hands, to choose a foot based on how we already feel and to wear it proudly. Or you know, to just wear both because that's cuter. & Pens Press in Culver City has turned both the Happy Foot and the Sad Foot into enamel pins, and each can be yours for $10 a pop. They're sold separately, and we're not sure how we feel about it—those feet are inextricably tied, two sides of one giant sign, forever—but the choice is yours.

Scoop your pin(s) online, at the shop or at the & Pen Press pop-up inside Reform School before they're gone and let the whole world know your foot-feelings.

Check out more of LA's most bizarre roadside landmarks. We'd wear pins of (almost) all of these!
