Lol. I was wondering if someone would ask this question. Krewe du Vieux (the parade I marched in) doesn't have floats that you ride on - they're pulled by mules and instead of riding on them you walk the (three- or four-mile) route behind them. As for what I wore, I wanted to wear black boots with my costume, and none of my AE boots are black. I was very tempted to wear my black shell tankers (Alden) instead. But, in the end, I chickened out, and wore my old motorcycle boots (Wolverine, Chinese-made but at least Goodyear-welted).
