I commend you for your well intentioned offering. Some shoe porn is prob a much needed relief. The question is, would the gentleman be able to raise his leg up? Asking for a friend.
Hi there:

yes I can lift my leg up. Immediately post op the pain was incredible but only to be expected. I do physio three times a day and one of the exercises involves lifting my leg up.
One of the things I plan on continuing is using a urinal. Peeing in bed is great! Another mountain top, eh guys?
it gets better day by day. I over medicated this morning so I was in another world. Great, eh?

Hang in there. Relax, save your energy. When it’s PT time, give it your best, but don’t push it. A lots of quality recovery come from PT 👍 You will develop a love/hate situation, but always remember your therapist wants the best for you. If it’s not a good fit personality wise, DM me. Maybe my attending might have recommendations in your area. Come back often. We always have corny jokes ready 🍻

At the doctor’s office this morning. Nothing serious. But chose serious footwear. 1981 Allen Edmonds Warton in black sharkskin.

Looking great 👍 Coincidentally, some good friends alerted me to a pair of Warton only a couple days ago which was thought to be late 60s. I’ll definitely share pics when they arrive

it’s this pair

This is shell? But looks black- has to be black. I am such a noob.
Well, it is shell for sure. The number does say 97626. But the 97626 was a #8 color, not black. This may just go down as "one of those things we will never be able to explain."

I can see more color 8 when I look at the tongue. May look different after the clean up. crazy.

These arrived today. I have needed brown PTBs for a while for casual/beater use. I think these will serve that purpose nicely. A little sad about the one scratch on the toe, but I knew they weren’t perfect. I’ll be putting a heel tap, or at least some tippy material over the v-cleat, I’m not as young and agile as I used to be!
Royal Imperial 97623

I have a pair of #8 Taylor-Made Imperials that were covered in black polish.

Hey Q:
Thanks for the good thoughts. I must admit that to some people jokes are corny but the same joke to another would be high wit. Look at Oscar Wilde and he was a really dirty bugger.

I can see the 8 in it at the heel. About to take the renomat to it! It’s covered in gunk. Might take all night - more beer and 80s tunes! Probably be all faded out but we’ll see
