I just bought a pair of the Grenson Salisbury, and after doing a lot of reading old posts debating topy vs. no topy, decided I would head to Felix's Shoe Repair (Cambridge, MA). Having done that reading, when I saw the following photo of Sen. Barack Obama with his shoes up, I wondered, what kind of shoes/soles are those? My uneducated guess is that those have been topy'd and the rubber is wearing through in the middle...? A note from the photographer:
Senator Obama was doing press interviews by telephone in a holding room between events. Sometime later as he was getting ready to begin his event, he asked me if I was photographing his shoes. When I said yes, he told me that he had already had them resoled once since he entered the race a year earlier. Providence, R.I., 3/1/2008.Any idea what kind of shoes they are?
