An Issue With Sneakers

S.U.N.---Something Unto Nothing


I don't consider myself a cheap kinda guy, but when it comes to sneakers it's a different story.

I'm happy spending $25-$30 on sneakers. As long as they're mostly white without any fantastical designs, I'm happy. I expect they'll last a year or so and then I have to come up with money to get a new pair. That's what selling blood and/or drugs is for.

A couple years ago I got a pair of new sneakers and they lasted about 6 months before they started to come apart. Money wasted, but what can you do? I went to my local JC Penneys and was looking at sneakers when a helpful sales associate came over and I told him what I wanted. He highly recommended a pair of Air Jordans and, even though they were over $50, he was the expert and you should never, ever doubt an expert.

The sneakers were first. Then the left sneaker started developing a sticky sound whenever I walked on certain floors. I inspected the bottom of the left sneaker and there wasn't any debris like gum or tape stuck to the bottom so I washed the sole. It didn't help.

I put up with this sticky sound for a couple months and then decided to break down and get a new pair. During last years Black Friday week of sales, I found a couple pairs of sneakers for less that $30 apiece. I was set.

Instead of jumping into one of those new pairs of sneakers, I wore the old ones and still kept getting that sticky sound on the left sneaker. Finally I broke down and broke open one of the new pairs.

For a couple weeks they were good. Then I started getting a squeaky sound from the left sneaker. Then the sticky sound on that same sneaker started happening. Again, nothing on the bottom of the shoe.

So now I'm stuck. Whenever I walk around it sounds like there's a bunch of baby mice screaming out in pain from the left sneaker and it also sound like I'm walking in sticky pee on certain floors. Guess I could try the other pair, but we all know what's going to happen. My other option is to cut of my left foot and never have to worry about wearing sneakers or any other shoes there again. That'll solve the problem and I'll also be able to FINALLY get a handicapped tag for the car.

Another thing I discovered is that Lay's has Chicken & Waffle flavored potato chips? For who? Oh, me. I bought a bag just to get incredibly sick cause that's how I roll.

COMING NEXT: I can come up with flavors for potato chips too?

Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but
when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog
like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
