What if I told him a duck could pull a truck?
Wooden soles can indeed exist. These from Officine Creative are an example; http://www.mrporter.com/am/product/...mal&siteID=J84DHJLQkR4-KBpLrX98HZ7aV1Rc_mMTFA
Alyways remember to get a wooden sole covered though.
That refers to the color, IMO.
I have a pair....
I thought you were in jail for murder serving like 50 lifes concurrent.
Also important: Wood does not bend. Leather does. Bending is pretty important for the sole of a shoe.
I wear these when I am in the mood to party. The sole is indeed wooden..
Thank you! My God....it's threads like this one that remind me why I have only like, fifteen posts on this site.
Here's a TRUE story: I went into the Zegna boutique on Madison Avenue in NY about a year ago....picked up a shoe. Commented on the rigidity of the leather sole, without using the word, "leather" to the salesman I was speaking to. He says, "Yeah, it's stiff like that because it's made of wood."
I said, "Aaah....I see...." and thanked him, and walked out. Have not been back in since. Frightening!
Clogging, I believe.
They are referring to the colour.
That is really a good point. And for human being to walk properly we will have to bend our feet which is not possible with wood. Some one could argue that "Ply Wood" will bend. True. But then ply wood has greater chance of snapping in half. And as I said earlier that due to Poor shock absorption of wood you will feel pain walking on them .
Details & Care
- Black high-shine leather Derby shoes
- Thick contrasting light brown rubber-coated soles and heels, ribbon strip at back of heels, pull-on tabs at tongues
- Outer: leather; lining: leather; soles: leather and rubber
The entire sole being wood sounds wrong, but shoes with wooden heels certainly do exist.
