Vi and I went shoe shopping tonight and maybe... I went a little overboard.
Most guys have four or maybe five pairs of shoes. I am sort of like a girl - I have about ten. Three pairs of various brown shoes, three pairs of black, two pairs of tennis shoes, two flip-flops, a couple of pairs of cowboy boots... okay, maybe I miscounted. Don't judge me.
First, I bought a pair of water shoes for the float trip this year. Last year I survived half the float trip with flip-flops, and then lost them in a rapid. And, by rapid, I mean drunken stupor. I had to finish the float with no shoes and that hurts like a whore. This year, I'll be prepared.
Next, I bought a pair of "house-shoes." They are intended to be worn with black socks and shorts, and they look especially good when you have holes in the socks. Honestly, these shoes can be worn for any occasion, or when kicking around the yard. Made by Adidas.
Then, the pièce de résistance: a new pair of K-Swiss casual running shoes. White, with white rubber bottoms and white trim. Basically, they are white. They are also really comfortable with that squishy shit in the insole. I haven't had shoes this sweet since last time I had shoes this sweet! Never heard of K-Swiss before tonight, but hey... I'm accustomed to being a trend setting trail blazer.
We're home now, watching South Park and wearing our shoes. A nice, soleful evening in Morrisville.
