The sole that lost it's shoe.
The sole that lost it’s shoe.

  • So what do you think the back story is on this poor lost sole?

    very fun quote – and the shoe reminded me about how we take for granted that more shoes do not come apart. – and maybe many of us take for granted having a lot of shoes (compared to days when people owned a pair or none)

    anyhow, I once had a paid of shoes fall apart – they were these black leather shoes and the right shoe partly pulled away from he sole while I was working – I had a click for the remainder of the day (not too bad) but coming home – it all came apart – and who would have expected that – cheap junky shoes (and they were at a discount store and so who knows why….)
    anyhow, I have also had flip flops come apart – but not too many shoes….

    If the shoe fits and you are already wearing a pair, you have three legs 🙂

    The title is quite catchy!

    A constructor worker threw away his working boots because the pair was damaged by cement. Over time, due to the roughness of the construction site and the sole was separated.

    In light of the photo, here my compete sentence “If the shoe fits then you know the origin of the sole but do not even think about gluing them back together. Buy a new pair. 🙂 “
