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. 🙂 

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 🙂

Nike Shox grab 

Author – Jonathan

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 

The End

Sleepover Nike grab

Author – Jonathan

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.

Shoe Swap Thrift

Author – Jonathan

Three months ago my Aunt took me to one of those Goodwill stores where you have to search bins in order to find clothes and matching pairs of shoes. People digging like crazy to find what they want. On that day she was looking for some shirts and heels for herself. I was interested how fast some of those people were moving. I decided to go back another day and play around teasing these people. 

I went in wearing a sweet new $70 pair of purple lowtop Air Force 1s I bought two weeks prior. 

First I had to find a pair of shoes and the only thing I found in my size was a trashed pair of Phat Farm shoes. 

I don’t even think they make those anymore.  I proceeded to put them on and I placed one of my AF1s in my cart and the other in a bin. I placed a few shoes on top and I waited to see how long it would take someone to find it. I walked around for a bit in these broken shoes all the while keeping an eye on that bin.  With anywhere from 3 to 8 people at the bin I didn’t realized it was picked up until I saw it in this young guys hand. He was looking in all the bins to find the other shoe. I could tell he was looking hard but after 15 minutes he put it down and gave up. A minute later a woman came by, picked it up and started searching for the other half. Was it for her husband? Boyfriend? Son? I will never know because she placed it down after five minutes.  This tall guy who looked to be in his 30s and was dressed as a construction worker picked it up. I was surprised how popular it was. But since all the shoes were trashed at that store and here is a new pair I shouldn’t have been that surprised. Anyway back to this guy. He picked it up to check the size. He turned it upside down to check the sole.. After closer inspection I could tell he had just gotten off work as his clothes were dirty. Im thinking to myself for him to not try on my shoe. Alas it failed as he took off his construction boot to reveal a dirty socked foot with a large hole in it. He untied the laces and slipped it on his foot.  He tied it back up and walked around for a moment. He must of liked them because he took it off and placed it in his cart. Tying his boot back up I just kept thinking how stained my shoe probably was now.  This guy really wanted to find the other half and he spent 30 minutes looking through all the bins. He gave up during a busy time and he just left his cart in the middle of the aisle. Guess he stormed off frustrated. However the store became really busy and by the time I got to that cart my shoe was picked up by someone else. I started panicking running all around the store looking for it. My mind was so focused on the shoe I lost I completely forgot about the other shoe in my cart which I had left behind when I ran around the store.  When I found my cart my other shoe was gone. I figured a purple pair of Nikes couldn’t be hard to find. I started looking in people’s carts and hands.  I searched for 20 minutes with no sign of them. I was in despair, me and my stupid ideas when at the front after check out I noticed this 20 something year old Latino boy and his girlfriend bag shirts, pants, and my Nikes. What do I do now I was thinking as they left the store. Neverminding the fact I was wearing a crap pair of Phat farms I ran out of the store. I followed them to their car and while the girlfriend was placing the bags in the trunk this little crap was putting on my new AF1s in the driver’s seat. In his conversation with his girlfriend he was saying what a find these were and that he never thought he would find such luck there. I have had enough and approached them.  I said that I overhead about his good find there and that I never find anything. I showed him my falling apart Phat farms and asked if I could buy those from him for double what he paid.  That little crap said no because he likes them so much and that I might have better luck next time finding a pair. Both of them got in their car and drove off in my $70 kicks that I would never see again.  Fun experiment failed big time.  Still have those junk shoes too :-(.  THE END

Party pickup X 4

Author – Jonathan

Ever love it when people have parties but don’t allow footwear into their homes? Well I found such a place and they were having what looked like an awesome party. I didn’t know them but still a shame that I wasn’t invited.  Anyhow I saw a couple of guys wearing nice kicks to this party and having to leave them outside. It was 9 pm and maybe 7 pairs were out. Some guys and some girls but it was way too early to be sneaky. I came back around 11 pm and there were almost 20 pairs stacked nice and neat out there.  I noticed no one outside and music blaring so I approached cautiously. One only has moments to make the grab. I eyed a pair of brown Nike skate shoes to be in my size, a pair of hi-top white converse which also looked to be my size, and a pair of Osiris that definitely weren’t my size but I love Osiris and wanted them. I was finally about to leave when I noticed the shoes from one of the guys I saw earlier just sitting there looking sweet.  As I went to grab them I saw that they were Adidas hi tops in all black and they looked to be my size. As soon as I reached for that last pair I booked home as fast as I could. I can only imagine what those drunkards were saying and doing when they realized that they would have to go home without shoes. Haha. Now I get to enjoy them as much as they did. 🙂
