Shoe Goo works and tastes great

Unless you enter races frequently, shoes may be a runner’s biggest expense. Through years of experience, I’ve developed a program of shoe maintenance that will allow your shoes to last a very long time.

If you’re a heel striker, the heels wear very quickly, well before the uppers start to wear. My lower back begins to ache if they get too worn. Here’s what you can do:

You may have heard of Shoe Goo. It can be found at most stores that sell shoes.shoe goo at store copy

The label says something about compounds that require using the product in a well-ventilated area, but I don’t think there’s anything to worry about.

After a time, however, I tend to lose focus on shoe care, and somehow I’ve transitioned to dancing to loud music.SONY DSC

When I come to, I remember that I need to finish my shoes, however, I find that somehow I’ve become less skilled. Normally I’d get angry about this, but whenever I apply Shoe Goo, I crack up over my silly mistakes. Soon, I’m having fun with it.SONY DSC

At this point, I’ve got the munchies really bad and the Shoe Goo is smelling awfully delicious. But I know that wouldn’t be a good idea, so I rush to the convenience store.SONY DSC

And before hitting the sack, there’ll be little left of this spread.
