Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #161 – Feet and Shoes
This week, Ann Christine leads the challenge: Feet and Shoes.
These colorful Japanses sandels were captured while we traveled in Japan. Almost all the temples and shrines were hard wood floor. So, we are asked to take off shoes and place our shoes on an organized shoe shelf outside of the temple/shrine.
This beautiful pair of sandals was found in the tomb of Tutankhamun, dated 1333 -1323BC.
Dutch clogs date back to the early 13th century in the Netherlands. They were designed to protect the feet of workers.

Forrest Gump’s walking shoes, Big Island, Hawaii:
“It’s not that I need more shoes, but they keep making them in my size.”
When I read this funy quote, I remembered my friend Gloria. She loved shoes, and everybody at work knew her obssession of shoes. She said she had about 300 pairs of shoes and high-heel shoes only; btw, she was 5’8″. When she wanted a pair of shoes, Gloria didn’t buy just a pair, but three or four pairs in different colors without any hesitation. For my curiosity, I actually went shopping with her a couple of times. 🙂
