Over the weekend I took a little detour over to Atlanta for a little event called the Atlanta Shoe Market. I’ve been to Atlanta many, many times over the course of my life, due to the fact that a hunk of my family tree is over there, but I’ve never had to be there for a work related event. So, needless to say it was a little hectic. Especially the whole waking up earlier than I deemed worthy to catch a flight. I will say my Chaco Z2s did a fantastic job taking care of my feet as I frantically hiked across airports to my gates.
I used to not be a big fan of Chaco, but after this trip I may have changed my mind. They’re easy to get on and off during security, which is a huge plus when you’re running a tad late and still needed to catch the rail to get to the other side of the airport.
Anypoo, I was completely overwhelmed at the sight of every major shoe vendor crammed into one convention center/hotel. Now, I can’t really show you the photos I took, but I can say that after the weekend of looking and touching the spring lines of some of our favorite shoe brands, like TOMS, Sperrys and Sanuk, and even a sneak peek of what’s new with Kavu, I know you won’t be disappointed come January.
Oh, and I actually got airplane peanuts on this flight. I’ve never had that pleasure before. In fact, I wasn’t sure they did it anymore!
