Yesterday I was running to the mailbox to put something in before the mail lady came. I had a waiting room full of people and it was cold so I ran at a dead sprint. Next thing I know, I'm flying through the air. My Croc shoe had snagged on the gravel and come off. As I flew gracefully through the air. I realized this wasn't going to end well. I tucked my extremities and plowed cannon-ball style into the gravel. Not good. All in all, it could have been worse, I'm not moving very fast today and have some road rash but I didn't break anything.
We think and talk a lot about EDC around here...which gun, which blade, which multi-tool... For me, shoes I can run in just went to the top of the list of EDC "must haves".
