Sure sure sure, we'll get back to pots shortly. Something more important first. I like black sneakers. You see, my tiny little Welsh great-grandfather worked his whole life in the Converse shoe factory in Massachusetts, making Chuck Taylors. So, you know, sneaks are in my blood. I have two ancient white pairs of Chuck Taylor lowtops someplace, so old they were actually made in the US. I never seem to wear shoes out, and I don't get rid of old pairs either, so there are little stashes of sneakers in different closets, and since I forget them, it is fun to come across old favorites and wear them again.I especially like the pair on my feet here, suede Converse, almost 15 years old. The high tops next to me feet I found at the side of the road last summer (brand new condition! my size! my wife dodged 55 mph traffic to get them off the highway!) and the black Chuck Taylor low tops were hand me arounds. Stay away from Adidas, I think, this pair looks good but they're junk. The black Vans here are wicked comfortable and well made.
OK, so yesterday Missus Pottersblog is looking at boots in the store, just in case winter ever comes along, and I start looking at the Simple Shoes black sneaks. This is a temptation, I must say....
