When I snapped this, I thought his socks matched the statue. When reviewing the shot, I realized the difference, but decided to present the shot as taken.

Yes the pair of socks seem lavender ( I am seeing such a colour for socks for the first time).
The statue stands really tall! Good scale here !

Superb street capture , really well seen , not only the color of the socks but also as two characters who cross ...the blue sculpted giant and man in a world where we would share life with other forms...

The purple socks have to go. I guess he got dressed in the dark.
