John Moore Shoes.
i came across these in the attic yesterday whilst looking for other stuff, as you do… bought them a long time ago, worn once, not something i would normally have gone for but they came home with me anyway after leaving behind my entire month’s wages. now looking at them, i appreciate them even more than ever before, to me – they represent: id magazines, the face, doc martens, ripped jeans, safety pins, polka-dots, the cook the wife the thief and her lover, blue velvet, jpg, yamamoto, run dmc, ll cool j, acid house and more. not bad for a pair of boots that did so little walking but managed to encapsulate so much. i no doubt will look in on them again, for now i’m going to put them back where they were found and wait another 20 years.
