The Island King has a thing about shoes and only owns 3 pair. Flip flops, deck shoes/loafers and his boots.
And he refuses to buy new ones until the ones he's wearing literally rot off of his feet.
Luckily for him, they don't stink so I don't complain. If he wants to wear a pair of shoes until they fall apart I don't care.
Not long ago, his deck shoes came apart as he was putting them on so he was forced to go and get a new pair.
He decided he wanted a loafer for winter (not that we're having a winter but...) so he wears his flip flops to the store, buys new shoes, pays and leaves the store – wearing his new shoes.
Off he went, stopping at several stores and then doing two photo shoots. I glanced at his new shoes when he got home that evening but it wasn't until he got home the next day that I got a closer look and saw this.
My husband has been working and wandering around with the tag on his shoe.
I pointed it out and being the odd duck that he is, he thought the tag was “kind of cool.”
So he left the tag on.
For a week.
It's like he's Minnie Pearl but instead of the hat it's his shoes.
Bless his heart.
