All right all you shoe-loving foot fetishists out there in internet-land! Come out of your tubes because it's time for the debut of Grrrbear's MINNESOTA SHOES!!!!!
First, we have the general shot. I removed the insole to show off the best part of the shoes - they even have actual loons on the heel! Check it out...go ahead...click on the picture here on the right. Explore the detail which the little Indonesian children use to create the delicate patterns on the loon itself! You know it has to be child workers because real grownup fingers are too big for work this detailed..
With my shoes on you can appreciate the spots and stripes around the heel area - inspired by the Great Northern Diver*. Basically, my heels are almost an exact match for the front of a loon now! In fact my feet are so loonlike that they have to use bright neon green accents on the heel and toe so that naturalists don't arrest me for strappin' loons to my feet and walking about town. Thanks for thinking ahead and watching out for my well-being Nike!
* The high-falootin' fancy name for Common Loons
