I wear an old pair of New Balance running shoes. The youtube video gave me some ideas for several things this year.

from the topic "the Anthropologist is in"...

"Basically, anyone with any part red hair genes had a Neanderthal great great^400 grandmother with the mental age of a 2 1/2 year old who was raped by the respective great X grandfather who happened to be an early effort at a homo sapien."

You want shoes with waterbags in them. Can't help ya there, sport.

I wear New Balance Trail Running shoes. I'll probably put on some sort of medieval moccasin to go with my costume. Maybe there will be combat boots involved. I may even go barefoot a little. But I am not you, as I hope you have noticed.

Do I have to go through my anti-camelback rant?

I spotted the picture on another forum and did a search for Russian Paw Shoes. That brought me to a site that had the pictures I posted. Never did search any further other than eBay and Amazon. No luck there.

Back to tennis shoes or boots. Probably hiking boots since the other boots I currently have wear have steel toes. Might be a little unconfortable in the heat. Decisions decisions and we have less than 100 days to make them.


You must buy a pair of the claw shoes!!! Those are awesome!!!!

Since we are sharing a camp......
If you wear the Teva's with socks we are going to require you to accent that outfit with one of the lovely tutu's we are making so I suggest you bring the hiking boots! (he really doesn't want to partake in our tutu's! :shock: ) Although the claw shoes would look great with my tutu! My old hikers are coming with me. (It will give me a sweet excuse to the old man on buying a new pair once we are back!) :wink: It might work on Marga too??

No TuTu. I'd look like a flamingo with my bird legs. I have two monk habits ready plus Marga will be making me a couple dishdasha. Fall back is cargo type hiking shorts. Just need to figure out the lighting. Oh yeah - this is a shoe thread. Light weight hiking boots are first choice at the moment. Again - no tutu

From what I can tell, everything that he makes is a one off, and he apparently sells them on ebay. Maybe there's not a huge market for claw shoes in the Ukraine.

sandals??

Post by SuperNakedGirl » Thu Jul 16, 2009 10:59 am

this will be my 5th year and i have had not one issue wearing "fake" teva sandals every year during the day. I buy usually a cheapo pair at target or kmart. I don't even wear socks with them. I do wear socks and boots at night and lotion my feet at night and wear socks to bed. But during the day all my feet get is vinegar and lotion. I am pretty active during the day as well and my feet have never hurt one time from these type shoes. Also my feet are never rough or gross after bm either. This could be just good genetics and/or good foot care during bm but that is my story. Can't wait to be home....
