Overheard at the Outlet Shoe Store

Post by Hansenaz » May 19 2019 2:04 pm

Salesperson: " So you're going to Nepal...that's awesome"
Customer: "Yes we can't wait....do you think these shoes are good enough?"
S: "Yeah...I mean you're not doing Everest or K.....or K..."
C: "K-9?"
S: "Yeah, K-9. I mean Everest and K-9...those are serious, you'd need better shoes...but these Merrells should be fine for the other Himalayan mountains"

That's a good question. Also, isn't it K2. I'm almost certain the mountain is named after the skis...

So to finish the story, did you get your shoes? Is it true at the outlet stores if you pay extra your shoes match?

Yep...new pair of Merrell Moabs...seem OK. I still hold Merrell responsible for some clearance shoes I bought a couple years ago which caused some annoying foot damage until I found the right insert. I might take 'em out to try K3-K8.

That's why I shifted to Keens, the platform is stiffer. Now I need to scale K-Tel for a record climb.

Didn't Ron Popeil market some excellent mountaineering thongs? Great arch support and heel cup if memory serves.
