Boat trip

Author – David

I went on a coach trip to Amsterdam with a couple of friends. It was an overnight journey there, and back, and we were there for three days. We did most of the things that visitors do in Amsterdam and had a good time. The last afternoon we probably had a bit more to drink than was good for us and decided to go on an early evening boat trip round the canals. All very interesting. We got back just as it was getting dark. Getting off the boat I stumbled and my right loafer came off and before I could do anything one of my friends kicked it over the side. It floated for a bit, but before I could try to retrieve it it sank. We only had about twenty minutes to get to the bus station to get the coach home so there was no time to try to get some new shoes although some shops were still open. With a lot of teasing from my friends I came all the way back to London wearing one black loafer and a blue sock.  The most embarrassing (exciting!) part was at the French customs. We all had to get out and go through the customs hall and have our bags scanned. I walked through in my socks carrying my shoe. One of the customs officials looked at my feet and said “No shoes mister?” I showed him my one shoe and told him that I had lost the other one. He took the shoe from me and passed it through the scanner, then reluctantly gave it back to me. I put it on and went back to the coach. My problem wasn’t over. I then had to do the same for the English customs, and when the coach arrived in London I had to get a train home. A lot of people noticed that one foot didn’t have a shoe; some were amused and as I got on the train one man said “You’ve lost you shoe” and people looked at my odd feet. It was all very exciting! I have only just discovered your site and find it very interesting.

Water park Nike’s

Author – Jonathan

I’ve always wanted to try this but have never really had the opportunity. When I was younger I used to go to the water parks all the time and see that most people would wear flip flops but some would come in wearing sneakers. They would take them off put it under a chair and go enjoy the parks amenities.  I always though how easy it would be to grab a pair I liked and leave.  Earlier this week I visited such a water park and after spending a few hours enjoying the park and looking around I decided to see if I could grab a pair. I saw so many people with flip flops but I did see a few Nike’s and skate shoes about. It was a busy day and everyone that I saw was surrounded by people. I noticed that this park had cubby holes for guests to put their shoes in while they ride the rides. Unfortunately all the cubby holes had flip flops in them and I was about to give up and go home when I saw this family take their shoes off. Not sure what the father had as by the time I noticed I saw the mom taking off her Nike’s and placing them in the cubby hole.  Right next to hers was her son’s shoes. I stood around watching them head to the ride. All I kept staring at was this woman’s son’s shoes.  I could only see the back of them but I could tell they were nice shoes in good condition. I was wondering how I could just grab them with no bag available. After a while I decided to use my shirt. I mean it was a water park so I could just take my shirt off and use it as a wrap. I looked around and saw people all around and some putting shoes in the cubby I quickly blended in and grabbed them. Wrapped them in my shirt and booked out of the park. I’m now the owner of these awesome Nike’s. They are in great condition and only slightly worn on the inside. Love to have seen their reaction. Lesson for people to either bring flip flops or rent a locker. 🙂 

School day in sheer socks

Author – Teddy

I had the most embarrassing day of class yesterday. I don’t dress for school in anything out of the ordinary but I make it a point to wear a button down shirt, jeans and loafers. Usually my loafers aren’t tied and haven’t been tied in a long time due to my laces being so worn, so they are loose worn leather slip ons practically. A lot of the boys.. and girls tease me by grabbing for my shoes during class. They think if they can tear one or both of my shoes off and leave me in my socks the whole class. One day one of the boys snatched one of my loafers and hid it all day. He said he lost it but then he gave it back to me at the end of the day . Really humiliating. But on this particular day I was wearing very sheer thin white socks under my loafers. I really shouldn’t of been wearing them if I didn’t want to be embarrassed because they were so sheer you could see my toe nails through the socks. Well on this day in class I had forgotten spare paper and my pencil at home and I had to ask the teacher for some because none of my classmates wanted to help me. The teacher never gives out things for free and he always wants you to trade him something in exchange while you use his pencils. we were taking a quiz today and I had no choice but to get his pencil and paper or fail the quiz. He quickly asked me if I had anything to trade him like a phone or a watch or something of value. After telling him I didn’t his eyes trailed down to my loafers. He practically smiled when he saw the loose leather smelly shoes on my feet . He said “why don’t you slip out of your shoes and hand those over as collateral” . If I didn’t know better he probably had a thing for shoes or boys in there socks. He practically lifted me out of my shoes. I couldn’t believe this because this was the complete wrong day to wear sheer stockings under my loafers. Now I would be showing them off to all the girls and guys in the classroom. I panicked and got red in the face. The teacher urged i give him my shoes. He said “no worries right? Those shoes are so loose they practically look like they are falling off your feet every time you take a step.” I quickly used one foot to step on the back of my opposite loafer, sliding my stocking foot out of my loose shoe. He was taken back when he say the sheer stockings I was wearing. I began to blush harder as the loafer came off my foot. He smiled at my sheer stockings. You could see my toes through the socks. It was very embarrassing. The teacher bent down and picked up both of my shoes. He told me to get on back to my seats. He took my shoes back to his desk and put them in a drawer and locked it with one of his keys. I couldn’t believe he just took my shoes and confiscated them for the rest of the class. Getting back to my seat all the girls laughed at my white stockings. They called me lily white foot and told me they could see my toes. They giggled and I knew they were cracking jokes. The guys didn’t even pay me attention because they were so taken back I was wearing such thin sheer socks. I was humiliated but for some reason very excited at the same time. I went the whole class in my socks and by the end of the class the bottoms of my socks were filthy from just being restless at my desk and brushing my socked feet across the floor. When I went to trade in the pencil and paper for my shoes back the teacher informed he actually misplaced his keys when he left the room a few minutes earlier. He said he was looking for them still. Now I had to walk through the halls to my next class infront of everyone in the school in stocking feet. I couldn’t be late to my next class and the teacher told me he would bring me my loafers to my next class directly , when he found his keys . I had no choice and I just went. it wasn’t untill almost 45 minutes later after being in my next class and everyone including the teacher just staring at my socked feet, that my precious professor finally came with my loafers. I quickly stuck my socked feet in them at the speed of light haha. It was a very tough day but very exciting 🙂

College boy looses shoe 

Author – Leon

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!!! 

Osiris wearing couple

Author – Jonathan

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 🙂

Joining my sorority

Author – Debbie

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.
