Hello! Here we are once again for your regularly scheduled Tuesday forum.

I was thinking about shoes. Particularly those of which we share a history with. They may not be most comfortable, or expensive, or aesthetically pleasing but if you think about it they'll be with you for a while and become part of your life.

Recently my favorite pair of shoes are some white Puma sneakers that have withstood the test of time and while other sets of shoes have come and gone they've remained intact and comfortable. I've taken them to several amusement parks and every Comic-Con of the last three years. They shall also be accompanying me to Fanime this weekend. That's a lot of walking!

What about you guys? Have any shoes become permanent fixtures on your feet? How about light up shoes? Those were cool.

TALK AMONGST YOURSELVES!
