Item #: SCP-240-J

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-240-J is to be contained in a standard issue shoe box and put into storage.

Description: SCP-240-J is a pair of slip-on loafer shoes. They're both brown in color with a lighter gray outsole, while the insole is memory foam for comfort. The shoes have both been coated in a layer of gloss for an extra shine.

Anyone who wears SCP-240-J perceives all shoes in visual range as loaves of bread, while any loaves of bread become shoes in the eyes of the wearer. These anomalous properties also seem to affect all 5 senses rather than just the wearer's vision. Any subject wearing the object will gain an insatiable hunger for bread, reason for this behavior is still unknown. In the wearer's eyes they appear to be eating normal loaves of bread, however in reality they are eating shoes. Anyone who observes these affects has feelings of worry and tries to stop the wearer.

SCP-240-J's affects last even after the object is removed from the wearer. This has caused some to question whether the shoes distort ones senses, or rather corrects them. Testing has still not given a solid answer as to if all bread in the world are really shoes or not.

Addendum: The following is a statement from Dr. █████ about SCP-240-J's anomalous properties:

Ever since I was assigned to study this thing I have been questioning quite a bit about what is real and what is not. It all started pretty simple, it was just a pair of shoes that swapped two objects out for each other. Pretty easy to understand right?

Then one day during a routine test I thought of something, could these shoes be correcting our vision? It was just a small thought at first, then it rolled around my head until it was all I could think about. "Is what I see real?" "Are these shoes fixing a mistake?"

I don't know, and frankly I don't want to. If I learned I was eating shoes for breakfast my entire life, then I wouldn't know what to believe anymore.

Regards, Dr. █████
