the idea was born in a small tourist trap ice bar in Oslo, Norway in May 2015

i got some strange looks when I sat down in the middle of plazas and squares to take a picture or when I took a shoe off in The Louvre to snap a photo with Mona Lisa...

but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

yes, i'm wearing socks - i have far too many pairs of the no show kind.
the same pair of shoes continues to travel and adventure,
the holes give them character.
