Tristan has been barefoot most of his life. His dalliance with shoes was directly connected to his coffin bone injury, and that was only about 18 months all told, many of them in glue ons.
I only have one pair of his shoes. They’re winter shoes, appropriately enough. They have borium heel studs and rubber rims to prevent snowball formation.
I’ve had them on my nightstand for the better part of two years, trying to decide what to do with them. Last night, after hanging some artwork in my office, I finally figured it out.
I’ll hang them just like that, in that spot. Right side up, because I’m not superstitious and think they look stupid upside down.
Here’s what I can’t decide: do I keep the rubber rims in them? On the one hand, the look is very meh. On the other hand, I’m a completist.
What would you do?
