Eleven bucks from Walmart! What else is there to say about these shoes? I would have paid sixty bucks for them. Sure they’re just a pair of sneakers, but this is a pair that I have been seeking out for a long time. When you look up velcro shoes you see two styles. You get the flat Vans or you get the geriatric version. The look I found in this pair is the old Roos style but without the useless pocket on the side. Do you know how good it feels to look for a pair of shoes for over a year and finally find it?

As I was putting away my new shoes in my closet, I realized I have way too many pairs of shoes. I just counted them, and although some are ready to go into the trash can because of holes, this currently ties the most pairs of shoes I’ve had at one time back in college. Seventeen pairs.

I’m so gay.

Bowl Movement

Ever since the end of high school, I have been thinking about getting my own pair of bowling shoes. As soon as I tell people I got bowling shoes they ask, “Do you bowl that much?” I don’t bowl all that much, but  it’s a good investment. If I go a dozen times, I will have more than made my money back in shoes I did not have to rent.

I started looking at bowling shoes to get, and they have shoes that look just like tennis shoes, but Michelle is right. When people see you in your bowling shoes, they should know exactly why you showed up. I want people to know when I step out on the lanes, I am here to bowl. That’s why Michelle has a pair of the exact same shoes I selected, to show we mean business.

How awesome are these bad boys? They even say “RENTAL” right on the side.

These will go perfectly with my bowling shirt I received last year for my birthday.

Time to Pick My Choose

Yes, I’ve used that same joke before when looking into buying footwear. I’m once again looking to get myself a new pair of sneakers, not those things Mexicans wear on their feet. Anyway, I was hoping to get a pair of sneakers with velcro straps, but I can’t find any in the style I want. They’re all old folks shoes. I did run across this pair, which I’ve seen before, but I was hoping to find a pair more like this with a pair of velcro straps. Let me know if you come across a pair.

Edit: Crap. I’m definitely going to need new shoes. I was in a rush to work this morning and I forgot to put on sock. These shoes are going to smell like cheese.
