Red Wings

I had to buy new shoes because the soles on the bottom of my old shoes were just about worn out. Much of it is from dragging my shoes to brake when slowing to a stop at a traffic light while on my bike. If I had continued to wear my old shoes, than I won't be able to re-sole the shoes because there wouldn't be enough left on the bottom of the shoe to glue on a new sole. Boy, this is getting exciting. Wanna hear what I had for breakfast, too? At any rate, the top of the old shoe was in dire shape as well from the shifter pedal, one down, four up. The up motion eventually results in this....


kinda matches my puka pants. Hey, those are work pants.

Nate- I no wear sports shoes. Mines is all steel toe. Btw, remember that shoe store in down town, Fort St. mall, or the next street. Also, these I paid extra because they're waterproof, winter soon.

I don't mean sport shoes. I get safety shoes too, given by the government to us - PPE. And that shoe store on Fort St. Mall was Kim Chow Shoes.

You ever had something fall off that railing?

RONW said...

Nate- yeah, that was the shoe store. Memory starting to get bad.

Brad- are you serious. I'm fearless.

Wha? Wot? Huh? Eh? You mean you no make like Fred Flintstone and go bare pilau feet?

Just as well, 'cause I'm digging the new shoes.

RONW - They ex-family. Ex's family own all them plus Robin's and a whole bunch of shoe stores. They was big before.

Rowena- no barefoot while riding, but there are slippah days. Btw, have you any idea how much brand name rubber slippers costs nowdays. The shoes in the photo are suppose to be like motorbike shoes with extra leather on the sides, and because they're steel toe, I can use them for work too. When your shoes get so wet at work, you wish you had bought that extra pair that you put off buying, to use the next day because works shoes never quite dry out overnight.

Nate- they were the sole provider to many people. Family, too, all you need was a clothing relatives.
