Well their time has come.  My favorite pair of shoes have went from cradle to grave.  These babies have about a zillion miles on them and although they are nearly shot they are still the most comfortable shoes in my closet.

This is just another of my many “Lucks” that I have had over the years. Every 5 years or so I start getting nagged by Linda that she won’t go out with me if I insist on wearing those “wore-out pieces of leather”.  I had always talked of somehow putting a piece of car tire on the bottom like a re-cap to get a bit more life out of them.  I think I may get them bronzed or something and hang them on my car mirror.  Fair-Well, your Watch has been Relieved.

"Looking Good"

Well today Linda must have had enough.  I got a email from her telling me she found a long lost “Child of Lucks” just sitting at a Thrift Store waiting to be adopted.  This pair of youngsters will like all the others, never be untied and will always just be slipped on.  I’ll crush the heel until it knows to get out of the way because my foot it coming in.

You have a lot to learn - Rookie

    Those “Lucks” should have been retired a long time ago. He’ll probably respectfully burn them, play TAPS, and salute. Those shoes were so broken down I’m surprised they didn’t fall off his feet and roll over, their flattened, warped heels crying out for heaven to take them.

    looks like the right one had a blow out…. I hear ya my brother….if shoes could talk they would have one heck of a story to tell.

    How well I remember those LUCKS. May they rest in peace.

    Hey, I’ve got a pair like that I enjoy wearing. My “boon dockers”. Yep, they look like crud but somehow 28 years ago I got used to them and they are my favorite. That said Sonny, I only wear them at home. Break Break. Take Linda’s advise on shoes. She is right, and, no matter how much a rebel you would like to be, always default on making the Mrs. happy. 🙂

  5. Sonny says:

    Actually I got them from LL Bean. Maybe I can take them back and get them replaced. They have a good return policy.

  6. Sonny says:

    I think they are hid and may appear when my feet really start to miss them.
