Yikes!

clothes & shoes are for wearing, don't forget that.

no sense in buying nice things if you're just going to be walking around anxiously in them.

I need a new pair of horse laces for my green Guidi 995s. Any suggestions on how to order those? I'd be fine with black or dark brown too. They are a pretty dark green.

Ask the store you bought them from - mine busted and they ended up giving me two extra pairs in their next shipment free of charge. Otherwise try email?

I believe kangaroo laces are more durable, so perhaps you can look for those also. Not sure where to buy them.

As my mother just told me (while I was I think packing up some random Wedgwood ewer she decided to give me): "if it makes you nervous, you can't afford it". Or more positively put: if the thought of using the damn thing makes you want to treat it like a museum piece, then why bother? (Not that I would be inclined to, say, go on a hike in shmancy boots, because I have hiking boots that are more suitable, but if I'm going to wear 'em, I'm going to wear 'em.

I stepped on a bullet a few months ago while wearing my dual zips. There was a live .22 shell right there in the sidewalk on my way to work. I am a pedestrian in Philly so that sort of thing isn't entirely out of the ordinary.  .22 is a rimfire round as opposed to centerfire which means that there is a slight possibility that it could have actually fired upon impact with my foot. I just kept wondering how the a1923 would have held up to that.

psshaw...if it's just a little bitty short round for a pop gun, that leather should win. if it's some kind of velocitor or aguila LR round, well, you'll be in the market for a new foot and a new shoe. same fellow who dropped that round might be able to hook you up with the former. for a price, of course.

step lively, now.
