While shoes are an obsession to some, in the common sense, when we aim our cameras down at our feet and shoot our sneakers, we are not thinking high-fashion. Shoes are the way we hoof through our surroundings, trample over pavement, and stampede through sand. They get dirty through the accumulation of miles we clock in with our gripping rubbery soles, and when we kick them off in the doorways of our respective homes, it often feels like we’re giving them a rest too. Simply put, they, more than any other article of clothing, bear the wear and tear of a rigorous journey, and therefore, they are also the piece of our wardrobe most synonymous with the distances we’ve traversed, literally and metaphorically.
