A short time ago, a blatantly off-topic question got posted on main and swiftly deleted, and I was curious to see that it had been (incorrectly) tagged . I didn't know we had such a tag. It seems as though only one other question has used it, about 8 months ago, and that it was created specifically for that question.

I don't think we need this tag. Should we get rid of it?

This feels pretty synonymous with . I'd vote for merging the tag or just deleting it altogether.

    $\begingroup$ Makes sense to me. I say delete the tag, and then add the clothing tag onto that other question. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I wouldn't go as far as calling it synonymous; footwear is clearly a subset of clothing. But that's okay; sometimes tags turn out to be too specific. $\endgroup$
