Walking outside to feed the geese and ducks this morning, I had to laugh as I was crunching through the snow. We’ve had enough weather variance to make the top surface able to bear the weight of the fowl. However, as I made my way around the yard I couldn’t help but to try and walk “lightly” enough not to crack through the top of the snow and keep my feet dry.
Of course Ivan the Goose was correct in his above assessment–elementary to an intelligent animal, I suppose.
It is kind of neat when the beauty of the OESH Sole is revealed in an unexpected way. Just as the snow surface caves in when all of Bob’s weight is atop his foot (mid-stance phase of gait), that is PRECISELY the INSTANT the La Vida midsole and sole complies and flexes, too. That moment of weight bearing is when we are most vulnerable to injury (when my foot sinks into the snow below). This morning was another graphic example of why nothing else compares to the dynamic shoes we make.
As Marcia attests to on a beautiful snowy morning, Viva La Vida!
