Old Shoes


This is a picture of one of my son's beloved old shoes. He received them in high school to wear to church. He hated them at first. They were stiff; they were his dress-up shoes. But he is twenty three now and won't part them them. They got very soft, they gained patina. They have been many places with him. Do you have a beloved pair of old shoes?

I have just worn out some lovely leather red shoes, I used to wear them in winter with socks and in summer without, sadly they have gone to shoe heaven. cheers Marie

I used to have a pair of Earth Soles. I loved them till there were quarter sized holes in the bottoms, and then sadly I lost them in the woods.
