La Sportiva - Oh the places you'll GO!!!
My Girlfriend reads me bedtime stories sometimes. She does this only under the contingency that I have behaved myself that day. Behaving myself consist of doing my chores, like vacuuming the floor, feeding the dogs, vacuuming the dogs and giving her massages. I also have to not pick my nose and stare at people when we are in public together, and not say stupid things by mistake.
The other night she was reading me “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss. I love most all of Seuss’s work, but this one has always been a favorite of mine. The message is that life is your oyster, a great adventure, and that anything is possible. It’s very uplifting and puts me in a happy place.
However, I couldn’t help but notice the other night that the author leaves out one pretty critical piece of the equation – footwear. He cleverly references in rhyme almost all the major types of triumph and defeat that one is sure to encounter in life. The book addresses some very philosophical and existential dilemmas. He even makes reference to shoes and feet many times, but never addresses the tremendous importance of proper footwear. Who knows maybe he was having a hard time rhyming with LaSportiva. Or maybe he thought specific product plugs would cheapen his writing… I don’t think it would have, but what do I know.
Anyway, point being: we just scored a huge pile of LaSportiva closeouts. 30% off on these three:
So grab a pair before they’re gone, click the book cover below to get inspired, then go move some mountains kid!... or climb them, your choice, just don’t get stuck in that waiting place.
