I've re-read this four times --- I still see "Strangelove feet.

Looked it up.
Shiny black shoes:

Guess I expected them to be more of a black with a matte finish.

Matte is the opposite of shiny ("dull and flat, without a shine").
Shiny is glossy.
Satin is in between.

I was expecting him to have scuffed up shoes for some reason.
Shiny actually makes more sense for the character I guess.

Thread title changed to correct spelling of director's name: "Kubrick".
