Speedo-Img 7777So i understand how the locals do it, they’ve got feet like a hobbits on the bottom. But it’s the tourists that I don’t understand how they walk around without shoes on. Even in the rocky areas they don’t wear shoes but sometimes I see them hobbling along.

I need my beach shoes to get around, rocks and cement and stuff don’t work for me. I had to get some fancier ones this trip since some of the other ones I get don’t work when jumping off at waterfalls; it’s no fun to be up in the mountains and loose a shoe. These are a little comfier than some of the other ones I’ve had in the past (and they haven’t fallen off yet).

SuttonbrownI’m definitely lacking nice brown shoes and I own several pairs of these shoes (see image) in black but needed to order the ones in the color brown. I knew I’d like them (this has been my standard black shoe for years) and I’ve been meaning to do this for ages so I added it to my 101 in 1001 list. So the guy at the Hush Puppies store said he could order them for me cheaper than I could buy on-line (which was true). I just wasn’t sure exactly what my size was so I wanted to check my black ones at home.

So I found the size and called them back and when they got on-line to order them it turns out they didn’t have the brown ones any more. So I checked all the on-line stores and the few places that did have them didn’t have my size (and they were all more expensive than he could have got them for me)…


Then I found Boscov’s!!!! They have the Sutton Hush Puppies in Brown and they were half off. So I ordered two pair! And I loved them. (Of course I did, they’re the same as the black ones!)

Did I tell you I hate shoe shopping? And that they don’t make these any more? And they were brown? And they were exactly what I wanted? Guess what? I ordered 4 more! I won’t have to deal again with this for a long time…

Is Boscov’s a real store? Has anyone shopped at one? Was it a catalog place before they were on-line?

(FYI: This is one of my 101 in 1001 days items, and this post is pretty much the same post as I put over there…)
