Why do people not pick up after their dogs? Shit!
Yea, at least dog shit can be cleaned off. I work with 14 year olds every day. At least three times a year (this year two in two weeks) I come home with fruity gum stuck on the bottom of my soles. At least one of them this year was a pair of C&J lol.
FYI, I'm considering selling my Ravello LWBs that have been worn three times (not been gummed) in 9E. If there is interest at $600 (personal payment gift or $625 reg) shipped let me know and I can provide pics. They were purchased new from a forumite who got them from Alden SF and was culling his collection. I'm still not 100% sure I want to sell....
