Shoe Spotting in Japan

Dave has been on exchange in Japan since the end of March.  He hasn't had many opportunities to email, but has found the time to share some photos of his journey. 
As you may know, Aurora Shoes have become very popular in Japan.  We all wondered if he'd spot many while there.  If these photos are any indication, they're not very hard to find.

Christmas at Yosemite



We love our Aurora Shoes and they go with us everywhere. This winter we were in Yosemite and took this picture on Christmas Day, 2009 at Inspiration Point. We can't imagine Christmas without our favorite things and that includes Aurora Shoes, Yosemite and camping in our 1968 Airstream Caravel. Elena does't wear any other shoes. She might try on other brands, but trades them...

 On a Wobbly Walk Around the Kitchen
When Dave's sister caught her then 18 month old son in her Middle English Aurora Shoes she just had to snap a picture.  He thought it was funny to try on all of Mama's shoes, but somehow these and a pair of shiny pink slippers became his favorites. 

Our shoes might travel around the world, but for this little guy, a trip around the kitchen was quite the...

On a Donkey in Peru
I was a Physical Education teacher in Peru, NY.  We had an annual teachers vs students donkey basketball game.  I wear my Aurora Shoes everywhere else, so wearing them for game was a no-brainer.  Let Michael Jordan have his Nikes, I've got my Aurora Shoes!

Thailand, 1999


"I toured Thailand for a month in January of 1999. I brought two pairs of Aurora Shoes and wore them everywhere. This picture was taken at the ruins of an ancient village. The monkeys had moved in and were the only living residents. Seconds after this shot was taken another monkey jumped out of the tree above me and landed right on my head."
