    These shoes were made for the road

    December 14th, 2006 by mary

    This is one of the best recycling scenes I’ve ever seen. There was a mountain of shoes made from old tires at the market in Lalibela. Some had Goodyear and Michelin tread on the soles but Steve picked a more comfortable pair made from sidewalls off an Ethiopian brand. Even the locals were making fun of him when he was walking around in these farmer shoes. (Steve’s note: they were ADMIRING my new ‘farmer’ shoes)

      Does this mean I can toss out that brand new, fancy pair of shoes in my duffel bag? It would make more room for sausage…!

      Sausage…ha! I’d like to see you get that through customs. No really, I would because salami would really hit the spot right now. mmmm.. :d

      We got a ride to internet today from a guy in Nairboi who is making western quality tire shoes. They’re actually quite nice with full tread from reject tires. There has to be a huge internation hippie market for such an environmentally sound – and stylish – product. Anyone interested in a distributorship for the lucrative Santa Cruz / Berkeley region?

      John, find room for my shoes AND the sausage. And don’t forget the 6pack of Barqs.
