I’ve gone with the word comfortable, and in this case footwear.
My wife & I, almost 10 years ago, made the decision to live our lives without a car. This was for many different reasons; not least environmental, economic, & health. We, therefore, go everywhere on foot where possible. Obviously, travel involves public transport, but once at our destination, it’s back to good old fashioned (& free) foot power.
Even our weekly shopping trips are on foot, with the aid of our two stair climbing trolleys (featured in my Fan Of… #64 post).
So back to footwear; by necessity, this has to be comfortable & capable of withstanding long distances (often our days out will see 10 miles or more covered). To become comfortable, I’ve found that shoes or boots need to be durable to attain the right level of comfort. These old Vans have certainly made the grade, to the point that they virtually have no tread left & the uppers are almost worn through in places — but comfortable, you’d better believe it!!!
Below are the new pair, barely a mark on the sole or uppers, but a lot to live up to.
Next are my everyday, go to footwear — my Merrels.
…and finally, for those tougher treks, my Trespass go anywhere, through anything boots.
Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how to).
This week’s Fan Of… is taking a break. I’ve been running this challenge for nearly a year now and have 73 posts under my belt (need to get a bigger belt 😂). With many of my colleagues at work taking holidays (I hear the livingroom’s lovely this time of year 😂) my work load is on the increase over the next few weeks, with little spare time.
To that end, I’m taking a short break from Fan Of…. A huge thank you to all you awesome folks out there who follow & join in my weekly enjoyment of life. This is not the end, I will be back with more Fan Of… posts in August. I will also see many of you on various other challenges, & Water Water Everywhere will continue to run as normal 😃.
