I was visiting an historic warship in Portsmouth, UK, when a party of college boys came aboard. A bit later I was on the docking brings and two boys were there. I heard one say to the other “you can just see it in the water”. Thinking that he had seen some kind of wildlife I asked what you could see in the water. ” The boy’s shoe” he said. Then he told me that as they came aboard one of the boys tripped and he lost his shoe. Another boy picked it up and pretended to throw it overboard. Unfortunately the shoe slipped out of his hand and ended up in the water. I immediately went to find the boy with one shoe, my heart beating fast! I got to the main deck in time to see two boys changing shoes with only three shoes between them. The teacher in charge had made the boy who threw is friends shoe in the water give his shoes to his friend and send the rest of the day with one shoe. I couldn’t take my eyes off him as he walked round the ship in his black trousers, white socks and one black lace up shoe. I tried to imagine him walking around town all day with one shoe. I got so inspired that later that afternoon I let my right loafer fall into the harbour from the ferry boat, and had to go and eat then go home on the train without a right shoe. I was very excited!!!

Ever go to the mall because your bored looking for an adventure? Yeah I did. It was one of those larger tourist malls with over 100 stores and I decided to explore around. Around noon I stopped at a pretzel place at the mall and I sat down with a cheese pretzel and a Coke. A couple caught my eye as they left a children’s store. But what peaked my interest was the pairs of Osiris on their feet. I sat for a moment to think of how I could approach them. I followed them for a bit when I saw them separate. The girl went into Spencer’s gifts and the guy sat down on a bench. I knew that was my time to approach. I wanted both of their shoes but had to test the waters . I went up to him and said I couldn’t help but notice your Osiris. My girl and I also rock them. He was like no way! My girl and I do as well. He proceeded to tell me that his girl is in Spencer’s trying to find a crazy gift for a bachelorette party. I asked him where he was from and he said Wisconsin. He had never been to Disney before and he had a great time but was looking forward to heading home the next day. They were at the mall to buy gifts for family back home and he was just amazed how friendly people were where I lived. So once the pleasantries were dealt with I inquired on how long he liked the Osiris brand. He told me that his girlfriend was into it more and convinced him to get a pair but that he still preferred DVS shoes. At that time his gf came out and was introduced to me. Her multiple color Osiris were driving me crazy and I wanted them. I told her that my girl and I love Osiris and though she wasn’t there with me she would want me to ask and see if she would sell them to me. She said are you serious? What sz does she wear? I had to think on my feet so I said it looks close to your size. I said 40 bucks I’m willing to give for them. Both of them talked about it for a while and they turned back to me and said no. I asked is their anything I can do to get them? After conferring with each other they came back with buy her a new pair of shoes at Zumiez. Zumiez is a skate store usually found at the mall. I said ok. After 20 minutes she came by with a pair of DCs and told me that was the pair she wanted. 70 bucks those dang shoes cost and afterwards I asked for the Osiris shoes. The guy came back to me and said he also found a pair he liked and if I wanted his girls shoes I would have to get him those too. What was I gonna do? I already coughed up 70 bucks for a complete stranger. I asked how much and luckily they were on sale. 45 bucks for a pair of sz 12 DVSs. I was getting impatient now as I wanted her shoes. They were done for the day and said to me let’s walk back to their rental car. Once we got there she kicked off her Osiris and gave them to me. I was thrilled. I wished them a safe flight home. She entered the passenger seat in her socks and closed her door. The guy got into his driver’s seat and I turned to walk away. I was a few hundred feet away when from a short distance he yelled back that he left a box in the parking spot for me. I was like umm ok thanks. I started walking back and by the time I got to the spot this couple was across the light and off to their next adventure. I looked down to find a DVS box and when I opened it what do I find but his sweet Osiris and a note. The note read as follows. Thanks for the new shoes it was a pleasure meeting you. I know you also liked my Osiris so here… now you and your girl can match. Best wishes….. So this is how I ended up with a couples Osiris skate shoes 🙂

My roommate Cindy filled a couple of pairs of my fav canvas Keds sneakers with water and froze them last April Fools. It literally stretched them about a half of a shoe size. Ahhh!!

When I first joined my sorority in college, the older sisters would teach you how to play poker. The only catch was that the pledges had to take a shot each time they lost. Of course this lead to all of the pledges usually losing all of their money to begin with. Then we were required to bet clothes, shoes, and whatever our sisters wanted from us.
I remember betting and losing my new white canvas Keds. The other pledges also lost their sneakers. We left barefooted and broke. Nikki was particularly unlucky and lost ALL of her shoes and clothes. After the game, the winning sisters emptied Nikki’s closet! But Nikki had the last laugh as her sneakers spread athlete’s foot throughout the sisters. lol.

Hi all I am back with another story on how my neighbors Nike Shox ended up being on my feet.
I moved down to Sarasota Florida to start a new life and I stayed with a friend. I brought all my animals down with me. I enjoyed my short time down there but it was not meant to be as I found the place extremely boring and after three months I moved out and back to Orlando. But during those three months I had this neighbor about seven houses down on the left that would hold wild parties and drive these big ass what felt like monster trucks. Every weekend was a party for them and sometimes weekdays both guys and girls would come and go. I notice all of this because I walked my dog down that way. I saw one of the supposed roommates get out of his big truck with some sweet looking Nike’s and they were definitely worn. What’s even better was when I saw that he took them off outside and left them there. Throughout the days I saw many pairs of shoes up there including boots and woman shoes but I always knew when that guy was home because of those Nike’s. I decided one day to plan on a way to grab them and I came up with a twilight hour grab while walking my dog. Now this house also had watch dogs that were loud and I had to be quiet. So one random night when all the roommates were home I decided to walk my dog and scope out the place. I had a shopping bag to put them in so it wouldn’t seem too odd that I’m carrying shoes. I walked to the house and since it was twilight I saw those Nike’s but hard to see much else. I went up thinking the worse that could happen would be they open the door and I would say something like oh I’m sorry wrong house or something lol. Well anyway the didn’t happen and I reached the porch but my eye was drawn to another pair next to the Nike’s. These happened to also be a pair of Nike’s but they were Nike shox and in pretty good condition. I’m thinking of how someone could leave a nice newer pair of shoes out in the open like this. So I quickly grabbed them and their dam dog started barking. I placed them in my bag and got the fudge out of there. Not sure of their reaction afterwards. I do know weeks later they actually all moved out but not before I had a little risky fun. I put those Nike’s on and walked my dog past their house. Looks like they learned their lesson as the front porch was cleared. Just then the guy with the big truck came home and got out. He saw me, said hi and went to check his mail. He went into his home shoes and all. That is the last I ever saw any of them. The next time I walked by the house there was a for rent sign on the lawn. Were these Nike’s that guy with the big truck? His friend? His roommate? I’ll never know lol

So in the end I ended up with these shoes but here is the start of this story.
A guy years ago made a video about taking guys shoes. He would be bold enough to actually have his phone out in a sneaky way and record how he grabbed them or sometimes just the aftermath of the poor saps reaction to losing their shoes. Due to his videos always getting flagged he vanished from cyberspace and it’s been years since I’ve seen this particular video. I however will do the best to describe it from memory.
This guy was only a few years older than the group of 18 year olds he had to chaperone. He was suppose to watch these guys and girls at a church youth house party. This he thought was the perfect opportunity to grab some kicks as it was a sleepover and everyone left their kicks right on the inside of the doorway. He spied this red hair guy with some junky orange Nike’s but his desire to grab them was high. So while all the folks slept he snuck out to grab them and put them in his car. These pair actually had good soles but we’re trashed on top and for some reason missing an insole. Not both but just one. Sz 13 which were his size so he was totally stoked for the grab. In the morning this red haired guy was looking everywhere for his shoes and with the help of sneaky grab guy who pretended to help him but all the while secretly recording him they searched all around the home. The best part was at the end where he recorded red hair guy walking to his car in his socked feet. Oh how I miss that part.
But wait the story does not end there as he ended up with pair number 2. Sneaky guy was sleeping on the couch and another guy on the recliner right next to him. This new guy however did not take his shoes off but instead slept with them on. When sneaky guy got up to take those orange Nike’s one of this new guys shoes ended up Tangled in sneaky guys blanket. As an impulse he decided to take it and place it in his car. Everyone was outside bright and early and guess who popped out his phone to take more videos. Sneaky guy had his phone camera aimed directly at this tall new guy with dark hair walking around in only one Nike shoe and a black socked foot. Sneaky guy, new guy, and new guys girl were all talking about what to do and where it could be. Sneaky guy was very clever and said why don’t you leave the other one here and if we find the lost one we will ship it back to you. Hoping that he would do that. He declined and he went about searching for it. New guy took his one shoe off inside and during a no body around moment sneaky guy grabbed it and threw it in his car.
Before he left though he went back in to find the new guy talking to his friends about how both his shoes are now gone. Sneaky guy left with a sz 12 pair of Nike’s in grey and blue. Awesome grabs from volunteering to chaperone a party. 🙂
Now to how I got them. I enjoyed watching sneaky guys videos so much that I offered to trade shoes with him. I gave him a pair that I didn’t mind parting with in order to get those sz 12 Nike’s. Since these were tight on his foot he didn’t mind parting with them. Now I own that new guys sweet Nike’s. I wonder if he ever still thinks about what happened to his missing shoes those many years ago. Lol I hope sneaky guy comes back to make more awesome videos someday soon until then I’ll have the memories.

I heard this story and had to share the sad case.
Sam and I both had a pair of shoes removed from the change room today. They were set on the shoe racks in the same place the entire hitch and are routinely swapped out with our work boots each day. I checked with Manny and he said the attendant for the change room did not see them, and after checking all the waste disposal cans in the change room and outside the accommodation door they were still not found. I was told to report this to you. Perhaps this could be brought up in all the pre-tours to see if someone knows where they are.
