The article features the relation of sneakers and the Earth's magnetic force field to human beings. The conversation between the mother and the son in the article features the planet as a giant magnet and all living things is said to have a sensitivity to the earth's magnetic force field. The use of sneakers is said to insulate human beings from anything the earth has to offer since those wearing sneakers are deprived of being in contact with the ground.
