Lost Solez

OMG you guys.

I have been waiting to lay this little number on y'all.

Many of you knew this was coming and it's official.

The  LOST SOLEZ  portion of my blog has arrived!!!

WTF is Lost Solez??

I'm so happy you asked! Let's call it an ode, no -  let's call it a "Propa' Ode" -  to the "One Shoe Phenomena".

You know when you're driving/walking/staggering along and you see some random ass shoe on the road/sidewalk/parking lot and you think "how the hell did that get there?"  or "what's the story behind that abandoned little gem" or "haha look at that shoe in the middle of the road!"

These are the pictures of those lost solez; never to be worn again - well maybe by a crazy ass bum - never to be reunited with it's other sole mate, always to be thought of as footwear-roadkill for eternity.

I have been seeing these so much lately that I thought I would start my own little shrine.

Specklesville, Hawaii                                                      T-Dubya

Kuau, Hawaii                                                           T-Dubya

Huelo, Hawaii                                                         T-Dubya

Ho'okipa Beach Park, Hawaii                                                                   T-Dubya

Haiku, Hawaii                                                          T-Dubya

*Bonus Picture*

Peahi, Hawaii                                                                                             T-Dubya

For now these have been taken by me on my day to day adventures. Some are taken by camera if I happen to have it with me, and trust me I am no photographer, so it's not like it's on me at all times (And if we are being honest nothing screams TOURIST like a camera-necklace and I, my good friends, have called these Hawaiian Isles home for 5 years now and I am NOT keen on lookin' like a tourist.) or they are taken by my phone so they aren't the best pictures but we'll do what we can. Word? Word.

Also, I would LOVE to have you guys keeping your eyes open for random lost solez and you can email me them and I will post them on this blog - along with your name or a fake name or whatever you want to be called and the town/state/country they came from.

Here are the rules tho:
#1.  You can't rig up some fake-ass picture, like throwing your old-balls shoe out the door and snapping a picture. (Where's the fun in that?) Which leads me to rule #2.
#2.  So no touching, moving, positioning, spit shining of the lost sole is allowed - you gotta take the pictures organically, as it is, some pictures are just going to be boring and some will be fantastic - this is life.
#3. If you see something really picture worthy that's not a lost sole but just as funny and random then I will accept those as well for the *Bonus Picture* portion of our program - maybe it's a sock, maybe it's a funny sign, whatever - let's keep shit spicy - this is life.

So - keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready - you're going to be surprised at how many lost solez you see now!  Please email me your pictures to and your name or alias and the town/state/country they came from! I'm excited to see what we can get!

Happy Lost Solez spotting!!

**Disclaimer*** I am not held responsible for the weird looks and/or honks you will receive after you spot a lost sole and promptly whip your car to the side of the road, jump out, looking like a total spazoid to shoot a random picture of a nasty old shoe as opposed to the beautiful scenery around you. Just do it and forget about those people driving by - you probably won't see their asses again anyway! 


  1. I have a certain "now pooping" sign picture that I am pretty sure I can dig up if you are interested.

  2. I too have a "now pooping" photo! I believe it was taken by Mr. Kitchen while working at LC. I still throw up a little when seeing or hearing the word p-doubleo-p.

  3. Um,excuth me mith, Allythen,

    That picture was taken by yours truly and Cat. We turned the car around and grabbed her camera to get the photo in your honor.
