...or when you get sick of your kicks you apparently take off your shoes and ditch them right then and there. How do I know? I witnessed this.
Spotted: one touristy-looking pair of white kicks downtown Chicago at approximately LaSalle and Ohio. I wonder a lot of things about the owner, er- former owner. But mostly I wonder if he (or she?!?!) misses the shoes and/or regrets ditching them. I had to resist the urge to try them on to see if they'd fit me*.
