July 18, 2009 § Leave a comment
I admit I’m fairly surprised but delighted that not just females are sending me their pairs to post. The latest pair come from a co-worker and long time friend, (Fried-Chicken) Rick.
Read below and vote on his kicks, and send me your pairs to be posted! firstname.lastname@example.org
A bit of background about myself: I’ve worked with Sara since she’s had. No, I mean REALLY curly hair. I sit about 20 feet away from her and have been known to spout of lines from the greatest comedy of all time, ‘Who’s The Boss?’ “Isn’t dat rite, An-jell-uh?” But I digress…
The red adidas goodyear shoes are worn about every other week to the office and to EVERY NASCAR but with better cars, better drivers, better races, better tracks, well, I think you get the idea.since I bought them (but didn’t bring the team much luck in the last ). They also accompany me to the occasional DFW Gearheads meetings to watch races. For those not familiar with Formula 1 racing, its kinda like
[prov–uh-nuhns, -nahns] –noun
place or source of origin: The label says:, so let’s go with that.
Date of Purchase: Circa 2005
Circumstances: The wife was probably at work saving lives, leaving me to troll the adidas outlet store alone (with discount card firmly in hand). I found these babies along the wall dedicated to the Originals brand of adidas. It took me .0002 seconds to decide to purchase them since: A) red and black are my alma mater colors, GUNS UP!!! B) I’m a sucker for racing shoes. C) there’s real carbon fiber in the heel and outside edge of shoe. D) they had a pair in size 12!
Compliment Meter: 6. I’ll get the occasional “nice shoes” from people, but I can’t tell if its sarcasm or genuine affection. All I know is not many Tech alumns can pull of the red/black shoes with matching face/body paint.
Comfort: Extremely. 9 out of 10. Plenty offor my flat feet. Which I’m told didn’t get me into the army.
Worn with: Jeans and my favorite
Thoughts: “ If you ain’t first, you’re last.” ~Ricky Bobby
So what do we think? Are they race worthy or are they the pits?
