Portraits: I Love Shoes!
Nike Dunk Hi.
I love shoes and have a bunch of brightly-colored sneakers and cool boots.
I decided to photograph them with some cool lighting and shadows, which shows
them off in a more exciting way.
Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars Hi.
Even cooler with the black logo and black laces.
I bought these boots ten years ago for a 70-mile backpack trip with the Boy Scouts. They're Gore-tex and been through many miles all over the state and Big Sur's trails. I recently shot golf at Pebble Beach anda they're still comfortable and beat to hell.
Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars lo.
I bought these Chucks for $6 on sale at Sear's in San Luis Obispo. They were part of my Halloween costume for many years when I dressed up as Hunter S. Thompson and have tons of (now faded) black Sharpie marker in weird squiggles.
The soles of brown Beatles' boots.
Van's checkered slip-ons.
Comfortable, all-the-time, lazy sneakers.
Cool name for sneakers, don't wear them much.
Dr. Marten 8-eyelet 1460.
Dr. Marten's are the toughest shoes around and they will last, literally, forever.
