No, I haven’t bought another pair of shoes. Of late, I have been spending the better part of my walking-around time fearing for my life wearing my black boots. The soles of these boots are completely flat; no tread whatsoever. They’d really make a great pair of skis, you know the mini kind that people wear to do tricks. Except these are incorporated into the boots… I could save some serious money at ski hills without needing to rent. I digress.
I went to meet Jen at the airport today and anticipated some walking. Not knowing the road conditions, I decided to branch out and wear my hiking shoes. These have serious tread. I didn’t even fear for my life walking down the hill of death to the bus stop this morning. Novel concept, but apparently tread works and perhaps I’ll be wearing the hikers a little more until people ice pick their sidewalks around here.
