Few days ago some guys from school and me were messing around in the field after school. At some point a few sat down at a picknick table. A few minutes later I went there too and sat down on the table. We were having some fun and then one of them started pushing the other one. I got a push too and fell on my back on the table. My feet came up because of that and this guy who was standing there caught one of my feet and started pulling. He wanted to pull me off the table but I grabbed the edges so he could not get me off. Then another guy grabbed my other foot and he started to untie the lace. I struggled and wiggled my foot but he kept on to it. The other guy then did the same and a moment later I was shoeless. They both ran away with my shoes and the others were just laughing. I shouted come back, please, but they kept on going. From a distant they turned around and they waved with my shoes and shouted, if you want them back, come and get them! At first I thought they will come back but they turned around again and walked on. Now I had to follow them so I jumped off the table in my red socks. The first few yards were not a problem because it was a grassfield but they kept on going and going into the streets and everything. After a while I nearly kept up with them and I could see they tied my shoes together. I asked them again to give my shoes back. They just laughed and threw my shoes to the guys that followed me. This went on a few times and then one of them said, let’s see how high they can really fly! I got the shivers because we were standing next to a high office building and I still got a long walk to get home. I said come on guys, you had your fun, give them back. They were laughing again and one of them threw my shoes high in the air. They landed back on the pavement and I wanted to grab them but another one got them first saying, let me try, I can get them higher. He threw them up in the air and I could see my shoes taking the turn to the roof. I got warm and cold at the same time and in a second my shoes disappeared on the roof. Everybody was laughing and I just stood there shoeless. After a little while some of them tried to climb up the roof but that was not possible. I now had to walk home for about 20 minutes. First I felt embarrassed but after some time it felt almost comfy to walk in socks on the streets…

Some time ago a ‘little sockwalk’ took an unexpected turn, I never had thought could happen! I stayed very long at the office. When only my boss and another colleague where present, I sneaked to an empty bureau. We use it as a relaxation room. I was sure they wouldn’t come in, shortly before they went home. I left my shoes under a chair and sneaked back to the door. I heard them talking from a bureau. I quickly went to the end of the corridor and hid in the mens room. Ok, safe at first. Suddenly I heard footsteps and my boss asked through the closed door, if I were inside! I quickly answered and she said they would leave now. I should lock the door, when leaving. I answered ok and heard her going away. I waited until I couldn’t hear them anymore. They were gone and I left the restroom. It was a thrilling feeling to sneak around the empty office in stocking feet. I went to the door to the staircase and listened. Absolutely silent. I got into the staircase and sneaked two floors upstairs. Suddenly I heard voices! “Bye Mike! See you tomorrow!” Oh shit! They were still there! I heard them talking while waiting for the lift. “Why did you lock the door? Mike is still inside. He is in the restroom. He will not notice if anyone comes in. And he has a key”. WHAT??? I got panic! Before I could react, I heard them entering the elevator. OMG! I hurried down! Locked! The door was locked! Frantically I pushed and pulled! I was trapped! I was sweating! My face must have been deep red! Oh no! Not only my shoes were inside, but also my coat, cell phone and house key!!! It would be the humiliation of my life, but I had to get them, before they left the building! I hurried down in my socks and stopped at the front door! Gone! They were gone! Panic set in! Suddenly laughter behind me! I didn’t hear her coming! “Locked out???” she grinned. It was a girl, from another office, I sometimes met on the train. Oh nooo! I stammered something about …. “Just wanted to look at something!” “In your socks???” Still grinning! NO … yes … I didn’t know an answer! Suddenly she took her mobile out and asked if she could take a picture! “This is so funny”, she laughed! I screamed “NO” and hurried upstairs! Oh my god! I waited for a long time, before I realized there was no other way! I had to get home like this! My neighbour has a key to my apartment and I hoped she was home! I sneaked along parking cars, to get to the station. It was chilly and rainy and no one runs around like this! The station was crowded and I waited nearby. Finally I hurried to the station, getting a lot of funny comments! On the train I tried to hide my feet under the bench but it was useless! Finally I made it home. Luckily my neighbour was home and I just told her, I got locked out, while looking at my post-box. “I saw you coming home, from my kitchen window!” she laughed (caught …) The next day I was the first at the office. I waited at the staircase until my boss, who always is first, was coming. When she opened the door, I quickly followed her. I said hi, and hurried to get my shoes from the relaxation room. They were gone!!! My boss was in the tea kitchen and I scurried to my place. My coat …. gone as well!!! From the kitchen I heard my boss! “Mikey, the cleaners called me yesterday evening. They told me, someone had forgotten his coat …. and his shoes at the office! They took them to my bureau!” Grinning she looked around the door …. holding my shoes and coat! “Oh, and Michelle from the insurance office send me a picture of you … on your way home! I send it to your mail-account.”

A few weeks back me and my college buddy went out for a few beers, both of us where typical students, plenty of energy and fun to be had but never enough money to achieve our goals. Whenever Jim had any money he could never hold on to it, he liked to speculate to accumulate, basically he liked to gamble. This particular night we’d already had several beers when we passed a bar that looked rather run down, Jim said we should call in here for a beer “Are you sure” I said. He convinced me to enter, we walked to the bar, we got ID’d then ordered two beers. As we looked around Jim noticed a secluded area at the rear where he could hear voices, like a dog sniffing out a bitch on heat Jim sensed a card game in progress and wandered over. “Hey guys can I join your game?” asked Jim. He was told it was a private game amongst friends and asked to go away. He persisted and they relented and warned him to prepare to lose all his money. I looked at Jim as he sat at their table, he smiled and I remained seated at the bar watching a football game on the tv. I took Jim another beer, he smiled as his money pile had increased. I returned to my tv game at the bar. 20 minutes later Jim was at the bar not smiling as before but asking for money. “Run of bad luck” he said. Telling him I don’t have much he took it anyway and wandered off back to the table. I bought another two beers with my remaining loose coins and wandered over to Jim and noticed his white socked feet planted under the table and his Nike Air Max sneakers actually on the table. I gave Jim his beer and walked away again. Several minutes later Jim was back at the bar ‘Shoe-less’. I stared at his socked feet then looked up at him, his face was red with embarrassment as he stared at my New Balance shoes. “No way are you gambling my shoes as well” I said, his face became more red as he told me he’d already done so. I stood up and walked towards the door. A voice shouted “You’re not leaving this bar with my shoes”. I became surrounded by a few guys from the card table. “Take off the shoes” demanded the voice. Feeling threatened I had no choice but to remove my shoes and hand them over. I headed for the door in my black socked feet and got stopped again. “You are staying until the bar closes then you and your buddy are going to clean up before you leave, in the meantime you can collect bottles and glasses. “Your buddy needs to learn to stop when he’s down, not only has he lost your shoes but he owes us work too” Most of the card game guys left taking our shoes with them. We walked the bar floor in our socks until 2am. After an hour of cleaning we where allowed to leave and walked shoe-less for several blocks back home, Jim’s white socks where as dark as my black socks with as many holes.

Last autumn I was feeling a bit down in the dumps so I booked myself a holiday in Cyprus, flying out from London Heathrow. I traveled to London by train, then got the tube train to the airport. I had to change lines and there was some delay on the last line and things were running a bit late. When the train came in there was a crush to get on and someone stepped on my heel and my shoe came off and fell down the side of the platform. I was already a bit late but I had to let the train go and try to get my shoe back. An employee looked along the track but said that there was no shoe there; maybe it went off with the train! I stood on the platform with sand coloured socks and one, left, dark brown shoe. I got the next train and dashed to the check in where they told me that the last call had been made and I should run. One of the staff came with me and hurried me through security, then I ran for what seemed like miles and got to the gate and onto the plane. The door was closed behind me and I was shown to my seat by a male flight attendant who said loudly “Have you lost your shoe?” So half the passengers knew
I arrived in Cyprus on a Saturday evening. No shops open until Monday! So I stayed around the hotel. Then on Monday morning I walked into the town wearing the left shoe and went to a shoe shop. The owner was amused that I had walked there with one shoe, and was surprised that I wanted to keep the odd shoe. I brought it back with me and have kept it as a reminder of a stressful but exciting trip. I sometimes wear just the one for fun!

So I was in the library one day and I was sitting in a cubby where you can see the person in front of you’s feet and sneakers if you wanted to snag their shoes hehe. I decided to be adventurous and kick off my new navy blue Avon sneakers with bright yellow laces. They really capture your eye’s attention and I thought it would be exciting to scoot them over to the person in front of me’s space. I was hoping he would steal my sneakers so every so often I would glance down the space to see if they were still there. To my surprise I saw him pack his stuff and then he noticed my sneakers laying in front of him. I saw him grab them and he then tied the laces together. I was confused why he would go through this trouble to tie my sneakers together and then I saw him leave. I looked to see if they were still there and thankfully they were there but I couldn’t get the knots out!hehe I decided to walk in my white socks because I couldn’t deal with the hassle of untying my sneakers.

This year the new PE teacher implemented a new policy regarding those who came to class without their PE kit and shoes. They would have to spend the class period walking around the gym with their shoes off.
The headmaster felt that this would also be a good way to spend a detention so detentions were held in the gym and for one hour after school “bad kids” would be in the gym padding around in their socks. This became known as the “walk of shame.”
Needless to say, a friend and I got detentions for talking in class. I was embarrassed about getting a detention since this was my first one. My friend had gotten several detentions before. He said that it was not the worst thing that could happen. He did suggest that I wear two pairs of socks to the detention for extra cushioning when walking. So I did.
The time came for the detention. We waited outside the gym changing room. When the door was unlocked we went inside. we sat down and began to unlace our shoes. We took off our shoes and left them under the bench and we proceeded into the gym in our stocking feet and sat down.
The detention supervisor then told us to begin walking. We walked around the gym with our shoes off. It was not that bad on the feet.
When the detention was over, we proceeded to go to the changing rooms to get our shoes. However, we were not able to get them back. There was a ball game that night and the visiting team had placed their equipment in the locker room. It was explained to us that once the visiting team was there, no one was allowed in. We replied that we just wanted to get our shoes. That did not matter. We were told that we would have to wait until after the game and everyone had left before we could go in there to get our shoes.
We attended the game in our socks and received lots of comments and questions about not having shoes on. After enough of this we decided to go into the changing room during the game when no one was looking to get our shoes.
We left the changing room, we were caught coming out and were asked why we were in there. We explained that we needed to get our shoes. We were told that no one could go in the changing room while the opposing team was there because if something of theirs was stolen, we could get blamed for it.
The next day we were called into the head master’s office for breaking the rules. He told us to take off our shoes and he put them on the shelf. We would get them back after serving another detention.

I had a chat with a guy. I told him about my strange hobby, to sneak around public places in my socks, leaving my shoes behind, when no one is around. he wrote, that he would like to see my shoes disappear, seeing me stranded in my stocking feet! he asked me where I live and if I was in with a little ‘game’. I was thrilled and told him the city where I’m living. he told me to take the train to a bigger city nearby. I should find a big building, trying to get in and hide my shoes somewhere and sneak to the top floor in my socks. It was cold outside, so it would be an embarrassing situation, if my shoes would be found and taken! I wrote ‘OK’ and left my apartment. while sitting on the train, I got a message on my mobile. he told me, he would observe me (with a smiley). of course he couldn’t. he was living in another country. but the imagination got me excited! I pushed my shoes under my seat and wrote back; ‘then take my shoes! I have slipped them off! lol” “later, my friend! later!” he wrote back. when I arrived and left the train, I looked around, if someone was observing me! “stupid” I thought and was grinning. surely he was sitting somewhere in his apartment at his computer, far away. I walked around the area, looking for an open front door to a big building. finally I found an apartment building, at least 12-15 stories high. I wrote him, I’m ready to start and he asked me to send him my position! I was not sure, if I should risk that, but what could happen? he was not here! so I did. he told me to find a good place to hide my shoes and then take the lift to the top floor. I looked around. of course at a stairwell, there is no place to hide your shoes, without anyone would find them. I sneaked down to the basement. under the stairs was a small gap. perfect I thought. who would look under the stairs? I send him a picture of my shoes. he told me to leave my coat with my shoes! if I was cought I could tell, I lived in the house and just was running to the post box in my socks. he was right. so I dropped my coat on my shoes. he then told me to take the lift to the top floor and then to send the lift down. I was very nervous, when I left the lift at the top floor and send it down. now I was really far away from my shoes and coat, in a strange city, far from home! I wrote him, it happened! he wrote me, that the game begins now! I should stay at the top floor for at least 15 minutes. meanwhile he would confiscate my shoes and coat. I would have to get back to the train station like this! he would drop them in a locker at the station. he would give the key to the lost-and-found office at the station! OMG! the way he wrote it seemed, as if he really was here! I tried to relax. of course he just enjoyed, to tease me! after 15 minutes, which felt like an eternity I called the lift. when it opened at the basement I hurried to get my shoes and coat back! GONE!!! NOOOOO! oh shit! shocked I looked at the empty gap under the stairs! I just stood there and couldn’t believe it! panic set in! quickly I wrote him, that my shoes and coat really were gone! “of course!” he answered! “you know, where they are!” OMG! this couldn’t be real! he caught me! I stayed at the building for a long time, before I carefully sneaked out! my face must have been deep red, when I tiptoed to the train station, trying not to be seen in my socked feet! the real ‘walk-of-shame’ began, when I got to the station! it was very crowded and I got a lot of laughs, while scampering around, trying to find the lost-and-found office! finally I found it. trembling and shivering from the humiliation, I asked if they found a key to the lockers. grinning brightly a young woman came to the desk … with my shoes and coat!!! “yes! seems these are yours!” she laughed. they already hat opened the locker!!!
