And sometimes it's just too easy!
I've been sporting the above pair of checkered Vans for the better part of five years now. They've supported me through much work, rad rock shows, fantastic art shows and many a Mixed Species photo shoot. The latter of which will ensure they live on beyond their physical life, most notably matching my dress in the you park like shit and oil whore sticker listings. Just look at the holes, ink and dirt rubbed into those bad boys, no one could contest the love that has anointed these work horses a shoe fave for a lifetime. Now just a shadow of their former selves my peers often joke "you can't stop wearing em now, they're almost sandals". I'm kinda a sick shoe dude, not in the sense that I have many pairs but more that I only really like em when all the sides get rounded off and the sole has formed to my funky feet and shnarfy toes like spam in the can.
Okay enough blathering bout these old dogs, the new digs make it hard to feel too bad.
Last Saturday night Sara and I stayed at the Jupiter attending what was one of the best rock shows I've seen, Dungen (these guys are about the closest thing to rock gods you've never heard of). Prior to the gig we headed across the street to a nard crushing gallery The Grass Hut and from across the room I heard the siren call of the coolest slip ons in the history of the world. Designed by Bwana Spoons and produced by Dekline these are better than walking on the backs of angels! Bwana's killer whale image swimming all over with much gold and red trim, if there was a super hero that skated he would sport these bad mother fathers ten sizes too large with rhinestone socks and a unitard, so no one would miss these rad stompers. If you look close I glued some of my own gems on the side!
Best shoes ever!
Thanks Bwana and Grass Hut
Here's a little taste of Dungen
