Remember the shoes I posted about when I was too lazy to come up with something worthwhile to talk about? Well, I’ve already stained the toe of one of them beyond cleaning, and I just realized today that they are trying to kill me.
The night of the Potato Bake I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off and every so often I would slip a little and think, “Dang it, there’s something on the floor”.
Swipe, swipe, swipe – nothing. I figured they must have waxed the floors and I was just hitting the slippery spots.
I wore the shoes again today and several times came across a slippery spot on the floor. Finally I scuffed at the place to see if maybe sand had spilled there, when I looked at the bottom of my foot, I realized it was the sole of my shoe.
What the what?? There is a strip of rubber running around the outside of the shoe, and one strip of rubber under the balls of my feet, and the rest of the sole is some felt-like fabric?? I’ve already worn it down enough that I don’t know what it looked like originally, but this seems like a very strange design to me. I’ve googled ‘Keds slippery sole’ and nothing is coming up.
I’ll get you, Keds. *fist shake* With Nike as my witness, I will get you.
