Mr. Roberts SHOES


This will be a two part post. Today the shoes in keeping with this weeks Sepia Saturday challenge. Tomorrow the man in the shoes.



Anyone want to guess what these shoes are? I'm thinking it's almost too easy.

  1. Tantalising. They look almost 'industrial', protective footwear. His trousers, leggings, wetsuit, or whatever are tucked in to the boots. Is he standing on deck? He could be a diver.

  2. Whenever I can, I walk past shoe stores rather than going in. So I don't have the foggiest idea although I must say they look very sturdy.

  4. I'm with Little Nell. They remind me of those big heavy weighted diving shoes Cuba Gooding Jr. wore in the movie "Men of Honor."

    1. Before I read the comments, I thought they might be diving shoes. After reading comments, I'm in good company with Marilyn & Wendy. Look forward to seeing the second part of this post to learn the answer.

  5. I'm diving too although I have worn my share of steel top caps in safety shoes. I would have gone for a miner's shoes were in not for the wooden planking.

  8. I'm thinking they are part of a deep-sea diving outfit. I'm wouldn't be surpised to find a big round bell-type diving helmet in tomorrow's post.

  9. I already saw the answer, but I would have guessed right, what with the many clues in there.
