Hello,

I would like to know if the following sentence makes sense:

"He moved about uncertainly, as if the soles of his shoes were askew / lopsided."

A possible reason for this is for instance (not mentioned in the original text) that the soles were unevenly worn out.

I hope someone knows.

Thank you in advance.

    No. Askew -> not in the intended or normal direction. "Lopsided" -> usually "significantly heavier/bigger on one side than the other." The formation of your sentence would mean that each sole was like this.
