he has a point.
He should grow some hair and cover it up.
Hairy feet < Ugg boots
Ugg boots ARE hairy feet.
As a Hobbit, I take offense to that.
I guess he never got into the hobbit of keeping the old pair of shoes as back-ups then?
I know I’ve been on reddit too much when I start frantically searching for the upvote button on a comment here.
I’ll upvote to that.
*snort-gufaw* …. *wheeez* ….. When was the last time you saw a guys old pair of shoes when he got a new pair? The old ones are either gone/lost/eatenbyadog or in such sad shape that they are unwearable despite his best efforts not to buy a new pair and have to break them in.
You usually see them when he is mowing the lawn, or other situation where no related females will care about the condition of his shoes.
The shoes I have to wear to work are old enough that I’m no longer sure exactly how old they are. My sneakers are–good lord–two year old. The pair of sneakers that pre-date those are my lawn-mowin’, car-washin’ shoes and will remain that way until either the soles wear through to the cushiony bit (at which point stepping in water gets your socks wet) or until I decide it’s time for a new everyday pair, whichever comes first.
I still have half of the shoes i bought since like 9th grade, each one little more than rags and a few rubber strips mostly from using them as brakes on my bicycle until i got my licence at 19, and after that my shoes lasted 3-4 years, i just had to retire a pair that the soles completely disintegrated on, and i stuck the soles from a previous pair in under the insoles because i got sick of wearing my socks out on asphalt.
I can braid the hair on my toes.
Seriously? Pics, please.
Technically, they’re more like wooly feet.
As a mammoth, I take offense to that.
As a mammoth, you should know that mammoths have hair not wool.
Since when do boots count as feet?
Growing hair to cover his feet is only possible on full moon – or perhaps when he’s being mooned.
I definitely was thinking that Walky should grow a pair.
Mkvenner… wasn’t there a Ghost with this name?
He’ll just have to borrow Dorothy’s then.
Walky, you are a freshman in college. Fuck shoes!
The Followers of Sierra welcome another into their fold!
I went a whole semester barefoot. I loved it until I accidentally stepped on a bee.
Blame yourself, not the bee.
First lesson of barefoot travel, always alert of your surrounding especially the ground. This is good for your mental training.
It’s better to use a sock.
this applies to so many, many situations.
Yeah, that probably wouldn’t work on my campus. There are often sharp objects on the ground.
Why would he fuck shoes when he has Dorothy right there?
Dorothy is many things, but a fuck buddy is not yet in the cards.
Oh, it’s definitely in the cards, Walky just hasn’t tapped it yet.
He also needs some manna?
So in this scenario, being manafucked would be a good thing, right?
How can I incorporate a Plainswalking joke into this?
He’d love to walk her Plains?
Duel of the Plainswalky?
*enter pedantic douche*
You mean PLANESwalky, ha ha ha ha ha
Dude, no. The tiniest cut gets a microscopic infection and then you have nastiness and can’t walk.
Maybe she does need that class on logic after all.
Just go like Sienna
Just do what Sierra does.
No Shoes. No Problems.
Awesome, now he gets to be barefoot and wear pyjamas all the time.
Your Gravatar is so appropriate for that comment!
All he needs is a bathrobe and some cash and he could be the new Hugh Hefner.
A mansion full of chicks seems like a pretty pertinent as well…
Dorothy’s molding him to be a dead-beat boyfriend. Now He just needs to stop wearing a shirt and lose the ability to tell when it’s inapropriate to scratch and he’s set.
This is Walky we’re talking about. You can’t tell me he wouldn’t just scratch whenever he damn well pleases.
Man Rule #4: If it itches, it WILL be scratched.
“If it itches, I scritches”
Walky borrows a pair of red heels for the day. May the lord’s work be done.
There’s no place like calculus. There’s no place like calculus. (which is a lie.)
No, it’s accurate. There’s no place as awful as calculus.
Clearly you haven’t been to Trigonometry.
I like trig. And calc. And math in general.
I like math, the simple logic of it, but I could count the days that statistics took off of my life.
So the class wasn’t a total waste after all.
OHMYGOD PLASMA, your quip hit me in the face.
You meant to say in the FAAAAAACE right?
We don’t speak of stats in polite company.
But this is the comments section of Dumbing of Age
It’s not Staturday, yet!
I’m very good at math myself. Doesn’t mean I like it.
It’s like a Mathematics party in here.
Laplace Transforms for everyone. Wheeee…
Calculus is like Trig on Steroids, and just as mean.
Nice mental image…
Yaaaaaaaaay gender stereotypes.
I’m a dude and own four pairs of sneakers.
You’re… weird. I hope that it’s a pair of indoor shoes, a pair of outdoor shoes, runners, and a pair you just can’t throw away.
Nope! I don’t wear shoes indoors and I don’t run. Three of those pairs are completely identical save for wear-and-tear.
And that’s not counting my sandals, flip-flops, and dress shoes.
*adding to the smack*
It was dumb but fairly IC of Walky to say it. It’s much, much stupider of you to actively call a guy “weird” for not conforming to it.
I’m a dude and I own one. I am spot on my gender stereotype…not so much my racial one…but I’m working on it!
Who do you need to meet your racial stereotype quota??
I’m bad at being condescending to women and I’m VERY out of date with my slang. I’m bad at basketball and fighting and can’t shoot a gun to save my life. Not a big fan of soul food and I like to avoid the N-word. so yeaaaah…
So I’m trying to figure this out from the clues…
You’re Irish, right?
I’m Irish-American and I own more guns, blades, and exotic weapons than a freshman con goer with an unlimited discretionary budget. If anything I’d say he’s Spanish-Italian (Spanish from Spain.)
Man, you Latvians are all alike!
You Vulcans just need to go back to your own planet.
Terra Prime Forever!
Guys, guys, the clue’s right there in the picture.
He’s a disembodied head, obviously.
Wait, wait … we’re ALL disembodied heads! WHOA. Break the mold, Yotomoe! Also keep in mind, I don’t think people really have as crazy ideas about what we … um … Irish folk, are like, outside of Canada & the U.S.
You’re a wizard!
Ooh! Ooh! I know!
You’re a Pacific Islander! Right?
I’m a girl and I own one pair of tennis shoes, one pair of running shoes, one pair of hiking boots, and one pair of slip-on-y nice-looking boots.
Unless my math skills have failed me, thats four, which is greater than one in the standard euclidean frame of reference.
I own two pairs of Running shoes, one for the gym, one for slippers. One pair of dress shoesI kept from the military just in case and 12 pairs of Boots.
Currently I own five pairs of shoes. One pair for everyday use, one for grody tasks, one pair of white sneakers I had to buy for a job, one pair of fancy dressy shoes, and one pair of big snow boots.
I NOW own 6 pairs of shoes, but until I was about 23 I owned 1 pair/3 pairs. 3 pairs in the sense that one pair was a massively uncomfortable and unflattering pair of ‘smart’ shoes that I wouldn’t wear unless at gunpoint, and one pair of hiking boots caked in mud and possibly poo at all times. 1 pair in the sense that my last pair were my only normal shoes of the bunch.
The normal pair lasted for about 4 years at a time until very recently, when I decided that 2 years, looking raggy, losing most of their tread and having lost all their colour was enough. Previously they’d have needed a hole in them or to have a structurally essential piece fall off.
Also now I own batman converses, so shoes have grown in my estimation http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l7ip1gShJC1qbcmpz.jpg
I’m a dude and I own 6 pair of shoes!
Well, a dude with big feet in a country full of small feet. So it’s hard to get them shoes, so everytime I see a big sales of big shoes I will buy them!
Huh, I have three shoes, well two and a pair of boots. Sneakers I never wear because I hate the things, dress shoes for job interviews and formal occasions and boots I wear when I worked in fast food(something in that place ate through regular shoes).
But primarily I wear sandals because it’s as close to barefoot as you can get without worrying about broken glass.
>as close to barefoot as you can get without worrying about broken glass.
Vibram Five Fingers FTW
I’m a dude and I own more than 20 pairs of shoes, including sneakers, house slippers, dress shoes, boots, going-out shoes, shoes for special activities, flip flops, and shoes for doing messy stuff like yard work.
But then again, I’m a dude who’s attracted to other dudes, so the stereotype still wins. CURSES!
I have a pair I wear, an extra for in case these break, and a pair of sandals.
He has a point: I only have two pairs of shoes: a pair of sneakers for everyday stuff and a pair of work boots.
I have three reasons to own another pair of shoes:
1. Elementary school indoor shoes (from days long gone).
2. Picking up after my dog (in University, I don’t do that anymore).
3. Going to certain parts of the gym (haven’t even used them yet).
ALL OF THEM, ALL OF THE SHOES.
I own two. One to wear, and one to complain about having to wear whenever I am made to dress up nice.
Shit, forgot about formal shoes. Fine, four reasons.
Damnit, I forgot sports shoes! And winter boots!
You know what, screw, I’m giving up now.
this, screw this.
I am so starting to use “screw” as a standalone interjection.
At my peak of footwear ownership, I had a pair of black formal shoes, a pair of steelcap boots, a pair of basketball boots and two pairs of thongs.
You wear thongs in pairs? Is having multiple butts a variation on Butts Disease?:)
Evolution is a cruel mistress.
Two pairs of thongs don’t equate to shoes, no matter how you slip them on your feet.
Wait.. Ooooohhhhhhhhhhh you mean thong footwear!
I’m an Australian, what we call thongs, you call flip-flops.
And I meant underpants at first, so yeah.
I had no trouble with the term “thongs” in reference to footwear. But I have to admit, it is funnier thinking of them as wearing underwearon your feet.
Is… is that not a thing people do?
It’s almost as funny as the image of flip-flops between the butt-cheeks.
Flip flops are known as thongs in certain parts of the US, as well.
Yup, this. I grew up calling them thongs. I think the term is fading because of the style of underwear, though.
Don’t worry Walky, I’m sure there is some empty tissue boxes around. A little duct tape and you have yourself some AWESOME SPACE BOOTS!
I tried tissue box shoes for an ABC dance. They hardly fit, and not without getting all bent out of shape.
Hence the duct tape.
You know what to do with duct tape? get car wash sponges, duct tape them to your feet. It’s so comfy!
As a man i own three pairs of sneakers with holes worn through the insoles, two pairs of Flip Flops, and a pair of Formal shoes that suck a lot.
Oddly enough I have four pair of shoes… two are sandals, admittedly, but one pair is for work and then there’s the walkin’ around shoes.
I have a pair of everyday shoes, a pair of shoes I wear to work, a pair of shoes for walking around outside, a pair of shoes I wear to special occasions, and a pair of shoes I use whenever.
In addition to this single pair, I think I might still have the pair of formal shoes I throw in a closet when I don’t need them and then spend an hour or two looking for when there’s a wedding or something coming up.
There’s a guy on my campus who walks barefoot everywhere, people affectionately know him as “barefoot Jesus” because of his curiously familiar hair and beard.
He carries flip flops around so that he can get into the dining hall.
I recently got rid of 12 pairs of flip flops. It was heartbreaking. I cannot imagine owning only one pair of shoes.
I can’t imagine owning 12 pairs of flip flops. That would be 12 pairs of shoes I can’t walk in.
They didn’t fit in the closet anymore…
It sounds like a tiny closet if flip flops won’t fit in it. That is like the underwear drawer being to small for 12 pairs of thongs.
Size 19 feet! *gasp* We finally found them!
I only got rid of 12. There are many more that I didn’t get rid of. The Darkness has returned to the Canadian West Coast, meaning no more flip flops until next year, so they all went up on the shelf in the closet. My boyfriend went to get dressed one morning, and several pairs decided to introduce themselves to his head. HTH
My guy has more shoes than me. Three of my pairs of shoes are for my job, and then I have a pair of heels and a pair of tennis shoes. He’s always telling me I need more shoes…
…I’m a boy and I own five pairs of shoes and a pair of boots. Plus two different pairs of sandals. And that doesn’t count the pair of shoes I haven’t gotten around to pitching yet.
That said, I’m always running out of socks.
Heh – I wash socks at most once every couple of weeks yet wear at least a pair a day ….. do the math, I buy em in bulk, all the same style and colour each time. Makes the sorting easier.
Now I realize I have a lot more socks than most … oh well, just have to keep away from the sock demons.
I am a guy and I own Seven pairs of shoes.
Newer pair of Chucks,
Older pair of Chucks
Brown Suede Saddle Shoes
Black Dress Shoes
Fencing Shoes (That’s right, I’m a fencer. I fence.)
Why would one need specialized footwear for the buying and reselling of stolen goods?
Well, most people call them running shoes, but this pair also has better grip for the necessary parkour one might need when the police show up.
The could also be steel-toed, so that when you are installing fences you don’t break a toe when you drop a fence post on your foot.
So when the CSI try to check your shoeprints it will be different!
Unless they found a piece of your hair with their super magnifier glass and super tweezer.
Which, let’s face it, they always do and always will. Even the bald guy managed to leave some arm hair behind.
Or nose hair.
don’t they usually find semen in those shows?
Last panel of this comic seems appropriate here:
Walky is using some big words at the end there.
Yeah, I own only 3 pairs of shoes: Sneakers, sandals, and slippers.
Arranged in order of how good an idea it is to wear outside, especially when it is cold.
I’m the same way except all my shoes are rolelr blades.
I only constantly regret my life choices.
My boyfriend has boots, sneaks, and flipflops. I refuse to believe Walky does not have flipflops.
I haven’t had any flip-flops since mine were destroyed in a tragic accident. The rumors that I was near the woodchipper around the same time they went missing are, of course, completely unfounded.
Mine didn’t have a pair of flipflops for a long time until he borrow his brothers when his shoes got wet. That day he decided they were the best thing in the world and bought himself one pair. That was two years ago and he still owns only one pair of flip flops.
I only have shoes and crocs. Shoes for everything, and crocs for taking out the garbage and picking people up from work when I don’t want to.
But flip-flops were vital in dorm life. No matter which season.
HOW DOES WALKY TAKE SHOWERS!!!?
…And here we have another episode of “Let’s Think About Those Implications!” Here with your host, Plasma Mongoose!
Unfortunate Implications for the win!
Maybe I missed something in the previous comics, but what is preventing Walky from walking down the hall and picking up his shoes, which are more than likely still sitting where they were kicked the previous night?
Sidenote: As a guy, I own several pairs of shoes for the sake of variety. I also heard from an old teacher that wearing the same type of shoes for years actually warps your feet, no idea if this is true, but he wore a different style of shoe for each day of the week.
They landed right in front of Ruth. That’s like trying to get your baseball out of the yard with the vicious rottweiler.
Now that’s an awesome nickname for her.
I officially propose we change Ruth’s nickname! But we need a list of possible nicknames in order to achieve this!
Ruthless, Ruthweiler, Roo, Babe Ruth, and Rutherford Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV. Any other suggestions?
It’s a radioactive element. And number 104, if that can be applied to her at all.
With that (likely) smell? I doubt Ruth would want them, even out of spite.
Even I have four pairs of shoes. Admittedly I would probably get some weird looks if I swapped ‘em for each other, but still… it’s college!
well said walky, more proof that your still smarter than you look in this universe.
Walky used the word “incorporating”
I just noticed something. The title of this day is “If the Shoe Slips”.
Ruth is going to find out Walky is the owner of those shoes.
And finally, after slipping the sneaker on his foot. She realized he was the dashing prince who swept her off her feet at the ball.
I own a pair of sneakers, and a pair of sandals that are falling apart. Used to have black polishables that I wore to work, but after several pairs fell apart from wear, I stopped replacing them.
Work shoes, casual shoes, dress shoes, boots and sandals.
And a pair of slippers, but I don’t think they really count.
Ha. My lil brother owns so many pairs of shoes for the occassion.
One pair of sneakers, one pair of ‘nice shoes’ that I no longer have to wear to work and have stowed with the intention of never wearing again, one pair of sandals for running out to get the mail in, and one pair of flip-flops that I’ll probably never wear again with the sandals around.
So: one pair of shoes.
You’re as manly as they come, where “manly” is a measure of how little you care about personal grooming or presentation and how much you care about pooping and proving how manly you are.
saw the punch line in the second panel. Had to laugh my way through the 2nd half already knowing where this was going. Truth!
Since it seems to be a requirement for the days postings, here is my footwear list – one pair everyday black walkers [not runners] my old ones retire when they fall apart, black dress pair, all-weather-hikers, saftey boots, safty shoes, cleanroom whites, Wellingtons and my good ole pterodactyls [sp].
Ah poop – forgot I have a pair of Gotti that I wear with my kimono >_>
Do those count as shoes?
Assuming you meant to say “geta”, then yes, those do count as shoes. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geta_%28footwear%29 )
Face palm – you are correct – I really should not post semi-intelligent stuff so early in the morning – I should save it for the evening =P
EVERYONE IS DESCRIBING THEIR SHOES AAAGH
MY SHOES ARE SEMI-FORMAL AND FOR SOME REASON I WEAR NO OTHER PAIR. DOG WALKS, TRIPS TO THE STORE, A LIGHT JOG OR WORKOUT REGIME, SLAP ON THOSE SEMI-FORMAL SHINY BLACK SHOES AND GOOD TO GO
Given I don’t tend to destroy my shoes, they tend to accumulate XD Unless they are sneakers or flimsy sandals.
I constantly have to remind my female friends and colleagues of this. Though, I do have more than one pair of shoes, just not the eleventybillion pairs to match every possible combination of clothes in my wardrobe…
As an aside, I love how occasionally a comic will be posted and we learn things about our fellow commenters we would not have known otherwise.
Assuming we’re not all lying through our teeth, I said, while benching 350.
350 cupcakes? You might want to cut down or you will end up like Malaya.
I assumed he meant benching 350 women.
He’s a positively brutal women’s softball coach.
Not even some flip flops? What did he wear to the beach? What does he wear to the showers?
I’m a guy and I own a pair of sneakers I wear most places, a pair of nice shoes I only wear in nice places, and a pair of hiking boots.
That’s really all anybody needs.
Guys under appreciate shoes so much. I have 12+ pairs of shoes in my rotation and get compliments on them pretty much every day. Girls (and the rare well dressed guy) notice when you wear nice shoes.
Well one reason we under appreciate shoes is cause all mens shoes tend look the same, especially since mens shoes come in 3 flavors: sports, boots, and formal.This makes its hard to find a distiguished pair of shoes that don’t look like ass.
Those look like ass.
And even if I didn’t dislike dress shoes, all but about three of them would still look like ass.
Years ago, a friend of mine taught me her secret of evaluating men at the bar: Look at their shoes. Doesn’t matter how nicely they’re dressed, if they’re wearing ratty sneakers instead of appropriate footwear, then they’re faking it.
So now you know: Yes, we notice your shoes, and yes, we are judging you.
Um, sneakers ARE appropriate bar footware. (Unless you’re at the sort of bar that requires biker or cowboy boots.)
Rattiness is optional, though, so I can see evaluating that.
“Doesn’t matter how nicely they’re dressed, if they’re not wearing appropriate footwear”
She doesn’t mean appropriate footwear for a bar. She means if the shoes aren’t nice enough TO GO WITH the expensive outfit the guy is wearing. Get it?
It makes me cringe when I see someone wearing trainers with slacks, yet it happens so often.
That thought crossed my mind but was quickly rejected because what kind of moron puts on 4/5ths of a penguin costume?
I’ve just never understood why anyone would voluntarily wear uncomfortable shoes.
When I check out someone’s shoes, it’s to see if they’re vain or practical (rattiness is a point against both, though).
If your dress shoes are uncomfortable then you are wearing the wrong shoes. Dress shoes can look good and be super comfortable.
I’m a dude, and I totally fit the stereotype when it comes to shoes. They’re just so dang expensive and I can’t justify owning very many pairs. Currently I own
1 pair of sneakers.
1 pair of extremely old, holy, beat up sneakers that I wont throw out.
and 1 pair of riding boots. They’re equestrian boots but I use them on my motorcycle too. Woo dual use!
I have three pairs of shoes: one for everyday wear, one for backup in case something happens (like losing them to the R.A.), and another backup for the backup.
Walky is correct. I personally own a grand total of 3 pairs of footwear; sneakers which I wear 98% of the time, thongs (flip-flops for you folks in the US) for around the garden, and a pair of dress shoes that I think I have never, ever worn even once.
As a man, I have two pairs of thongs, two pairs of sneakers, two pairs of formal shoes and 3-4 pairs of “fancy shoes”.
The explanation? I’m frequently traveling between two houses, so I own two of every userfull kind of footwear so I don’t have to care about if I need or not to take shoes with me in my travels. I’m a law student, therefore formal shoes are needed, and the fancy weird ones are random shoes that my mom likes and randomly gift me but that I never use.
Once she gave me a crocs…
I’m a guy but I recently found that I have 42 pairs of shoes (not counting slippers).
Persepolis poster in the background? Props to you Willis! I’ve yet to see the movie, but both of the graphic novels were great!
I’m guessing the Rainbow Peace Jesus poster is not Dorothy’s.
Her atheism is actually an elaborate sham she’s putting on to make people think she’s more analytical than she really is. In actuality she’s so fundamental it makes Joyce look agnostic.
Lying to improve her image. She’s already a politician!
Saying she’s an atheist isn’t exactly going to get her ahead in American politics, though.
Dude who owns fifteen pairs of shoes here. Well over twenty if you count boots and sandals, like some commenters are doing.
Walky just gave her the first Intro to Logic assignment
I have several pairs of shoes, but most of them are old ones I haven’t gotten around to throwing out. I really only have two pairs that are “active,” one formal and one casual.
And my casual shoes could stand to be replaced soon.
I have a fair few pairs of shoes in my ‘I’m never wearing these again, unless absolutely necessary’ drawer.
My regular rotation consists of my purple DM boots, for everyday wear, my red DM Mary Janes for school wear (I volunteer in a primary school, and they’re the MOST COMFORTABLE shoes I’ve ever owned), and a pair of good sandals for the summer (not DM, this time) That’s about it, really. I have a pair of tap shoes, too, but, as you might imagine, I only wear those whilst tap dancing.
3 (4 with the taps) for a female… I think that bucks the female stereotype.
On a completely non-shoe-related note, I’m loving the early-morning lighting in today’s strip!
I wonder if Willis is gonna show us other rooms at this time of the day.
I love walking barefoot. I only do it in the summer though.
I honestly don’t know how many shoes I have. A bunch. I only really have one pair of shoes I wear regularly (they’re very decent walking shoes, very comfortable and reasonably dressy) and I will probably wear them until the sole splits or wears out and I have to replace them, like the last pair did. And I have a pair of crocs for running out into the yard quickly, and runners for when I’m pretending I’m doing something physical. Oh, and a pair of combat boots for Airsoft. And a pair of sandals for when it’s too hot for my regular pair. And that’s about it, really…
Except for probably close to twenty pairs of dress shoes. I won’t give you the whole list, but suffice it to say that I have a few decent dresses suitable for New Years and the like, and each needs its own pair of shoes. And sometimes more than one pair, so I can dress the outfit up or down. Plus I have my Fluevog boots that I adore but rarely wear, and a few other pairs of shoes suitable for a variety of occasions.
Oddly, my horoscope in Vancouver’s The Province newspaper regularly tells my sign–and not other signs–that I need to buy more shoes. I am weirdly okay with that.
See this was accurate untill I found another pair of shoes(boots)
But then it got cold and ky sneakers went into hiding so…
“If the shoe splits”
Please don’t tell me they’re going to break up over this
Sadly, I think the sinking of the RightShoeXLeftShoe ship is inevitable.
I would be perfectly okay with these two splitting up; I don’t like their relationship. Dorothy clearly doesn’t think of Walky as an equal whose opinions are to be respected and very obviously isn’t accepting of him as who he is. In my mind this raises questions of why she’s dating him; their shared interests would make them excellent friends, but they’re on very poor footing for having a relationship. Plus I think she abuses her upper hand in the relationship a bit too much – yes, this upper hand is entirely the fault of Walky’s clumsiness in romantic relationships, but that’s not an excuse for how she acts.
So yeah. Let’s torpedo this thing and get Walky together with someone he can actually relate to. Sierra maybe.
Forgot to mention:
All the above aside, I don’t think the storyline title implies they’re going to break up. I think it’s a punny way of saying what you have to do if your shoes disappear: go shoe shopping!
I hope they bring Dina. Accidentally, of course.
I couldn’t agree more. Other relationships by this author (we were asked not to discuss his other comics here, right?) have been much more heartfelt and engaging. This one? I was glad when it ended, peeved when Joyce “saved” it, and am constantly waiting for it to die again so the story can get better. There are some good moments in this comic, but if it remains a Dorothy/Walky comic (which indicators suggest it will)… Mr. Willis is a good writer, and I’ll continue to read his work, but will never have the emotional investment I had in It’s Walky/Joyce and Walky.
When I started my social year in Bolivia I took four pairs of shoes with me, because of the moisture in the tropics. Surprise, surprise I still only wear my standard shoes from back home.
Thus Walky was initiated into the Cult of Sierra.
When I was a kid I went barefoot all the time but after the fifth bee sting and the third shard of glass I moved too flip-flops.
I get this issue where sometimes the forward arrow isn’t highlighted and I have to press back, then latest page, then back until I get to the one I wanted to read. Any idea what that’s all about?
I never understood the need to own anything but a good pair of sneakers. Okay, maybe some more formal shoes for special occasions, but really, that’s it. It’s not like anybody’s even looking at your shoes.
I love Sierra’s Hippie Jesus poster.
Male – check
One pair of tennis shoes (paint splattered) – check
Two pairs combat boots (one all weather, one jungle) – check plus
One pair dress shoes – check
Now when I went to college the first time, living on campus, I owned a similar arrangement of shoes, but I only took the two pairs of combat boots with me.
He could use Joyce’s boots. they look about the same size.
I always feel left out in the male stereotype jokes.
Compared to my female fiancee, I own more pairs of shoes, spend more time on my hair, am not as good at lifting heavy things, worry more about color coordination of my clothes, check myself in the mirror more, cook more, shop more, bake more, enjoy antique shopping more…
Does that really make me less of a man?
dude…If you can cook your own food, make yourself look presentable, and attract females of the same species that is manly enough for most of us to accept you as a man…I on the other hand just choke out adult grizzly bears since I can’t do two of the three aforementioned things.
My step-dad, on the other hand, is a great cook and had no problem attracting females but is also a firefighter with bear-like chest hair and bulging muscles who can bench his body weight without sweating and regularly risks his life to save people, and drives really big trucks, and goes to Octoberfests and wins, like, ALL of their competitions.
If it makes you feel better, I’m a lady and I only own sandals, sneakers, and snowboots. Only for the situations what fit em.
Well I fail at the reply button
I AM A MAN!!!
My bf has a few pairs of shoes (house slippers, two pairs of work boots, and sneakers). But he’s also kinda dumb and utterly destroyed the expensive dress shoes my dad gave him by wearing them all the time instead of when he needed to look nice. (Like “wears his dress shoes on a 5 mile hike and gets hella blisters because he wore them instead of his boots” kinda dumb.)
Well, tbf, I usually only had one pair of shoes. Now I have four but I only wear one XD
…holy crap Sal avatar
did I mention I’m also a girl
I am a guy. My shoe total is:
1 pair of wetsuit booties
2 pairs of winter boots
Pair of steel-toed boots
Pair of cowboy boots
1 pair of loafers
1 pair of slippers
1 pair of white sneakers
1 pair of athletic shoes
1 pair of old yardwork shoes
1 pair of sandals
3 pairs of flip-flops
1 pair of black dress shoes / dance shoes
1 pair of brown dress shoes
- one pair of walking/everyday shoes
- one pair of basketball shoes that haven’t been worn in years
- one pair of majorly uncomfortable dress shoes
- one pair of marching band shoes that usually get used instead of the dress shoes
- one pair of moccasins
- one pair of slide sandals
All my shoes are black. The everyday shoes have orange highlights, but that’s it.
3 pairs of formal/semi-formal shoes
Five-Fingers Bikila (for running)
I can’t list them, but I used to sell shoes so I have a frickton.
It’s winter now though, so I’m basically in my furry snowboots every day.
Most boys I’ve known have had one pair of summer shoes, one pair of old shoes and one pair of winter shoes at any given time. One pair of fancy shoes if they’re wealthy.
To compensate for this stereotyping, I’ll also add that I have never owned a pair of shoes in my life.
If you count sandals then I have 2 pairs of shoes.
