worn out shoes

"Buy New Shoes When You Need New Shoes!"


"When we think of those who present a false front or "only" a front, of those who dissemble, deceive, and defraud, we think of a discrepancy between fostered appearances and reality." - Erving Goffman, The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life, pg 59


Update 2010 further discussion on worn out shoes that cost 65 dollars.

    Excellent notes and blog post. Wow. Life Journal, huh?
    I owned hiking boots replaced this year. They had been on three continents, and countless US cities. It felt sad to let them go along with a pair of ColeHaans the shoe doctor said would be kind of silly to re-sole (soul). Again. Please? No. Okay.

    @aggiechristine - thanks for the comments. And yes, left was dead.

    @shinyshoes - well everyone has a fetish. Just kidding!

    @jbolles - Thanks for the feedback. Those shoes pretty much are a life journal of airports and travel and speaking and work over the last year. They were very well traveled! And you are the first one to catch the "sole" and "soul" transliteration between physical motion and life.
