Reach down your hand in your pocket
Pull out some hope for me
It’s been a long day, always ain’t that right
Matchbox Twenty, ♫Long Day♫
Inspiration came to me a bit late on this one because I didn’t manage to blog something that was at The Men’s Department while the June round was open. With that in mind I’ve figured out that blogging items such as shoes can be done in other ways than they are intended (wearing them obviously). Putting them in the scene beside me to depict what it is like for someone to have a super long day and then come home to relaxing them in the pool is what I decided to do.
Maybe this will help me come up with scenes in the future that have footwear in them if I don’t have the perfect idea for as part of an outfit. Also consider this more outside of the box thinking because this is probably only the second time I’ve ever done that with footwear (it was in a photo I did where they flew off of me as I was in an out of control shopping cart).
This is certainly the right time to be thinking about wading around in a pool (probably more than just dipping your legs in) because in most places that I’ve seen on the weather have been hit with a bit of sizzle.
The “LANGDON Boots” from Cold-Ash are much like work boots and the HUD from the FATPACK has a lot of different earth tones to choose from (lots of different browns and of course grayscale colors). I enjoy this style but the one thing that I was personally hoping it would have was a way to change the sole colors as each tone has a white sole (which makes it seem out of sorts for me as I tend to enjoy footwear that you can match a similar sole color to the base of whatever style it might be). It’s not entirely a deal breaker but it may limit the ability to match it with a lot of things but still there are plenty that they could be paired with.
Here’s some of the features that are a part of the boot:
- Original Mesh
- HUD contains 9 shoe leather colors (9 lace colorways also)
- Regular and Short Versions (For pants)
- Add-On socks for regular version
- HUD to change sock colors also included
These boots can be picked up at the Cold-Ash flagship store but if they have not been added, they should be in the next day or so as the June round of TMD has come to an end and a new round will be starting in a few days.
I‘m also putting together the next post soon that will be a female item feature (the idea came to me when I saw a hair that my son Eli made). This should be a fun one and I don’t want to give up too many details in case I end up getting sidetracked and photo something different plus I’m not really that much of a sharer though but that really isn’t news to most that know me.
People inspire you or they drain you — pick them wisely.
