“Thoroughly good”

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned and they are not shoes. They are boots. Union Made in the United States by Thorgood, in Wisconsin. Vibram soles.  Remind me of the best skateboard shoes I used to wear back in the day, the kind that sort of glove around your feet in cushion. My name is Great Zamboni and I approve this message. I was not paid for this endorsement. Yet. You may not need these, but you do want these. I will wear these with my tux when getting my Oscar. I do not like to take these off. It’s sad.

Lately I have been thinking of something my peculiar Uncle Hornblad said to me once. I said to him one day, “Hornblad, you have no job, your wife has incurable boils, you were jailed for Halitosis, your stack of original IBM shares burned up in a hash fire- why are you smiling?” And Hornblad says to me, winking the one eye he had left after the french fry accident, “my shoes fit.”

You’ll see what I mean.
