Shoes

I've been having some foot problems lately.  Turns out I have a couple bone spurs on my heel and plantar fasciitis.  Not a big deal and it's gotten a lot better with some stretching.  I've also been wearing my running shoes almost all the time since they have a lot of good support.  But I've been doing much better, so yesterday, I switched and wore my black dressier shoes.  Long story short, it made me realize just how worn out they were, which got me to thinking about my favorite pair of shoes ever:

I don't have a lot of shoes, and I generally don't get attached to them, but these shoes were great.  They fit perfectly and I wore them into the ground.  You probably can't tell from the picture, but the soles of these guys were practically see through.  I finally gave up and threw them out last year in a flurry of housecleaning, but not before Amber tried to save them and surprise me by taking them to a cobbler to get them fixed.  Sadly, they were beyond repair.

These shoes accompanied me to some of the most amazing places in the world I've seen so far, including the Great Wall.

I think my shoes went to a better place.  After all, shoes have soles, right?
