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.
Canvas style shoes- tan

When I was visiting a friend in Port Moresby, Papua,New Guinea, I met two teachers, man and wife, who owned a 60ft 2 masted sailing ketch. They told me that in the school holidays they were going to sail it down to Sydney, where I live. They said they would contact me when they arrived, which they did. They invited me to dinner on board with them and there was going to be a party on board afterwards. I arrived at the harbour as arranged, but I hadn’t thought about not being able to wear street shoes on board so I had to take my loafers off and be in socks. After dinner a lot of people arrived and of course everyone had to take shoes off. So there was an area up on the deck at the bow full of shoes of all kinds. The party continued until after midnight and as people were starting to leave one guy was really drunk and tripped and fell onto the shoes scattering them in all directions. At least eight went over the side into the water. A couple of them were fished out but most were lost for ever. I had a look for my loafers but could only find the right one; the left one must have gone to a watery grave. I immediately started to get aroused at the thought of going home wearing one shoe. Or should I just ditch the shoe and walk in my socks? I decided that it was more exciting to wear the one shoe so I walked all the way through the city with a right black loafer and a light blue sock. It felt wonderful!

My friends and I always liked to find the hottest new kicks but being from not so well off families we had to find ways to obtain what we wanted. We wanted it to be fun and at the same time stick it to the ones who could afford those sweet kicks.so we sat around the living room one day thinking of ways to do this. My friend Roy thought about lifting from gym locker rooms like Gold’s gym. Andy thought about breaking into high school gym lockers. I said how about places were people typically take their shoes off. My friend Tommy mentioned those arcades where they leave shoes in cubbies to play around. We thought about it and said it was probably young kids shoes and we didn’t want that. We sat quietly for awhile when Roy suddenly yelled out bowling.in our town was a bowling alley frequented by many guys our age and with not much to do in town this place was popular on the weekends. We decided to make this our first hit. We went on Friday night to check out the scene and there was a lot of people there, private parties, people playing the arcade, etc. Our mission that night was to just check out the place, find the exits, check out the clientele, and determine what kind of shoes they have. That night after we got back to Roy’s house we mentioned all that we saw. This place happened to have 2 easy exits, few cameras, and the seats were positioned where it was easy to grab shoes from underneath. Andy witnessed a few teens and young adults wearing the latest Nikes and Jordans, we made our plan to go back on Saturday, split up, get what we could and meet back at Roy’s house. We got there around 8 pm Saturday night and what luck they were doing that disco bowling which made it even easier to grab, since it was so dark. My three friends went about their business. I looked across the alley and I saw a group of guys and girls probably on their dates. I walked by to see what they had. I saw a pair of flats, sandals, new balance. Boots, and a pair of Nike shox. The only interesting pair there were the shox and luckily it was between the side seat and where you pick up the bowling ball from the rack. I snuck down pretending to look for a ball when I snatched those Nikes and stuffed them into my jacket. I quickly got out of there with the thrill still causing my heart to pump fast. I thought I was fast in there but I was the last one to get back to Roy’s. Tommy and Andy both said they chickened out and left 5 minutes after arriving, Roy threw down on the table a beatup pair of Reebok. What the hell we all said.I got nervous and picked up the closest thing. It was a men’s sz 8 which was way too small and they were ugly too. I threw the Nikes I grabbed and they were in awe. It was a nice pair of Nike shox sz 12 in great condition and what was even better was the money stuffed into the right shoe. A nice pair of shoes and 25 bucks. This was our first grabs as a team. This was many years ago and we have moved apart since then but I’ll always remember our first.

I rode the tram into London. On this particular day I was headed downtown to walk around and the sights. Maybe do some shopping but I was a little low on money so I wasn’t sure. I stepped on to the train around mid morning wearing red high top chucks with yellow bobby socks. I didn’t tie my shoes often and sometimes it would result in my losing one or both of my shoes during every day tasks. One day it was so bad I tripped and lost my shoe and when I went to look for it I couldn’t find it. I was going to be late for work so left it. Another time I fumbled my shoe during a meeting for work while I was dangling and it landed right in the general managers view. My bare stocking foot was showing the whole rest of the meeting. Let’s just I never have good luck with my shoes. And today, going to London was no exception . The tram ride was terrible but my feet hurt from the night before so I took both my shoes off almost immediately after boarding . I left them kind of near isle . People looked in disbelief at my socked soles and my errant shoes. One boy passing my seat brushed by kicking one of them out into the isle. I had to grab it before it got to far away or someone picked up for there own liking . I quickly scooped up my shoes now lieing a few rows down under a seat. I slid my loose shoes back on and made my way back to my seat. Soon I got off at my stop. I had quite a few blocks to cover before I got where I needed to be. Sadly the tram didn’t go all the way I was headed . I didn’t mind . I liked the walk . Some of the parts I walked threw were a bit run down and I got some stares from locals that may not have been the nicest . I kept walking and soon caught notice of 3 girls in leather jackets and bulky leather boots. The kinds that made your stocking feet smell like wet leather and foot sweat. I turned a corner and started up the next block an they had started to get closer . I didn’t have really much of value except my purse and a few dollars. I wasn’t to worried but they persued and finally caught up. Pulling my arm and jerking me back. They interrogated and asked me where I was from. I lived outside the city and that’s all they needed to know. The one in front , big , well all three of these girls were pretty tall and seemed in shape; she asked me if I had anything to give for being on her block. She was just tryin to bully me because I didn’t look from around there I think. I shrugged it off and tryed to leave but she yanked my purse from me . She asked me what else I had and I said nothing. She said she liked my shoes and had the other girls pick me up by my arms while she bent down and yanked my chucks off. As I felt the breeze hit my socked foot as I was let back down on to the pavement by the two girls . I felt super embarrassed jus standing in front of them in my socks as one of the girls held my purse around her shoulder and both of my shoes in one hand. She then asked me what I was looking at and told me to star walking . I couldn’t believe I was jus mugged for my shoes and purse. I padded up the sidewalk in my socks a few blocks and looked back as they all stared and hadn’t moved . I spent the rest of the day in my bobby socks trying to get home . Never saw those girls or my purse or shoes again . Check out my socks here

Yesterday I was visiting my friend. He lives in another town and I had to travel by bicycle and train. When I arrived we sat down and talked and made fun about the things we did in the past time. At some moment another guy came by to visit him, by surprise. He sat down to and we talked for a while with eachother. I had noticed that this guy was watching my shoes every now and then. Suddenly he said; nice shoes you’re wearing and I said; thanks. He asked me if I would sell them. I said you’re joking? They were very old nike’s but still looking good. He offered me $50 and I was surprised and looked at my friend. He just looked at me like he didn’t know. I got a little uncomfertable and asked why he wants to buy my shoes. He only said; because Il like them. Well? Do we have a deal? He said. I got a little cold and warm because I realised if I sell him my shoes I had to go home in socks but at the same time I felt little excited too. I made him an offer for $70, I thought that would be too much but to my surprise he said okay, deal. I was again surprised. He pulled the money from his pocket and said; here it is, can I have the shoes now? There was nothng else left for me to do but take my shoes off and hand them over. My friend was only laughing, and I was kind of speachless. We sat there for a while longer and at some time this guy said; well I have to go now. He picked up my shoes and left. At first I couldn’t believe it that he really left with my shoes but when my friend turned back empty handed I knew I had to go home in my white socked feet. My friend walked me to the station and I got some strange looks from the people around. At first I felt ashamed but along the way I got little excited…
