I took the Red Wings in to get resoled on Sunday, and they say it’ll take over a week before I get them back. That means I’m going to have to wear some other kind of boots for my ride up to Tahoe and Yosemite this coming weekend.
I’m wearing my Doc Martens around, but I don’t think they’re up for the task of protecting my feet or providing any sort of ankle support. They feel like carpet slippers after wearing the Red Wings. They’re just light and flimsy. But hopefully better than nothing.
The clerk in the Red Wing store refused to take money for a pair of laces for the Doc Martens I’m wearing until my Red Wings get back from being resoled. It’s a small thing, but I’m really impressed by the gesture to take care of a customer.
In other news, I kinda forgot how much Yello rocks.
