goodbye, old friends

very well-loved Chacos
Today, it finally happened–my 8+ year-old Chaco flip flops finally had a fatal blowout in the right toe strap. These things are vintage at this point, as Chaco’s manufacturing quality has declined and they no longer even offer thin, flexible flip flops with “outboard” straps like this. These things were used as full-blown hiking shoes on our rafting trip down the Colorado through the Grand Canyon, hundreds of miles of Austin walkin’, and even served as pretty good running shoes chasing after Paul on his bike. I have some serviceable replacements, but they’ll never live up to these guys.
