an exclamation shouted by social media users everywhere when referring to someone without "shoe game". originated as a vine, and can sometimes be funny, but lots of lame people don't say it with enough force and end up looking extremely awkward.

This is what you say/scream when you see someone wearing shoes or other footwear that are dirty and/or non-brand unknown. You should also point your finger in the air then while saying "what are those?!" Make your way down to the person shoes, all while their back is turned.
*boy sees dirty non-branded shoes*

Boy: What Are Those?!

Crowd: *laughs*

Person with ugly shoes: huh? (Unaware of what just happened, so they laugh)

A stupid ass saying made up on vine but I most likely use it when I see crocks on a person's feet.
1; what are those?!?
2; those are my crocs.

A rhetorical question used on someone with ugly or old shoes. This may be an insult, or someone is just asking literally "What are those?" because they want to know.

Cameron: "What?"
John: "What are those?!"
