Yes, Another Post About the Shoes
Posted by Sam at 10:32 PM

Watching a motorcyclist interact with other motorcyclists is an odd phenomenon. Without even knowing one another, they share an instant kinship with their fellow bikers... regardless of whether they are riding a Fatboy, a crotch rocket, or a moped... well, maybe not a moped. When they pass each other on street they give the I'm too cool for a car wave. It's like they know something that we don't. It's as if they belong to an exclusive club, where the entrance fee is simply motorcycle ownership.

I've never belonged to the exclusive motorcycle club. Come to think of it, I've never belonged to any club... let alone an exclusive one. Until now, that is.

Recently, I've found myself exchanging nods of recognition with other owners of the now legendary sandals. Yep... owners of the Keen Newport H2 tend to react to each other in the same way that motorcyclists do. We Nod. We Wave. We smile. We comment: "How you like those Keens?" or "Looking good in those Keens!" We know something that the general populous of inferior sandal wearing chumps just wouldn't understand. It's exclusive, a little bit elitist, totally nerdy, yet somehow, enormously satisfying.

do you do this simply to torment me? i have been so good about the fucking shoes, so very good... and still you taunt me. the altima club was lame, but oooooh!!! the ugly, rediculous sandal club is worth sharing with the world? yep. i see how it is.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
