With Her First Chess Winnings, Beth Bought The Shoes That All The Popular Girls Were Wearing In Her High School
As you probably remember, on her first day of high school, Beth got bullied by the popular girls for her chunky brown shoes. In that same scene in episode two, the camera goes down to show that all these girls are wearing black and white Oxford-style shoes.
Later in the episode, Beth wins her first cash prize at a chess tournament and goes shopping—she buys her first chess set and a dress. But what you might not have noticed is that she also bought herself a pair of those shoes that all the popular girls wore. You can see Beth wearing them in the next episode when she and Alma arrive at the hotel.
