Day 93: Logan’s Runners

Looks like they’re due for the carousel…

April 3 main


My crystal is about to turn black!* These trainers are ready for carousel.

And don’t they look it!

(*Yeah I know it was red before black, but I didn’t have a red crystal, okay?)

Well, I only had myself to blame. I did emphasise a few days back that when I started this challenge I expected to get sent some really rank, knackered trainers, but instead people were largely loaning me pairs in great condition…

Then a massive box arrived at the office. The choice of box should have clued me in…

April 3 box

Pete Bayly, who’s been following me pretty much from the beginning, had sent me no less than five pairs. Two pairs are in pretty good nick, two pairs have seen better days, and two… pretty much in shreds already.

There’s no cheesy pong though. I have it on good authority from my production editor yesterday that when I opened the box, the air remained odour free. So thanks, Pete, for either having abnormally hygienic feet, or well fumigating them before delivery.

On the other hand, suddenly having a couple more pairs with no future is perfect timing for something I have planned for the blog at the weekend… (oooh, teaser).

Oh, and if anybody who read my Tweet last night was expecting a Darth Vader-themed photo today – I did say I was after inspiration for a quick photoshoot today. Instead I was given lots of inspiation for some elaborate photoshoots and blogs. Damn you! So Darth Trainers will be coming, when I have more time.

See you tomorrow.


Current total: £685
