I don't know the origins or level of solemnity of the original Japanese expression, but it seems that at least some of the YouTube titles linked in your question are using it to attempt to influence people to consider [trying/buying] various footwear "looks," so maybe it wouldn't be totally inappropriate or overly crass to consider expressions/slogans/quotes ...
