JACK MUDURIAN: Shoes, they hurt your feet, they pinch
your toes. If
they're big enough they won't pinch your toes. I'm trying
to get down to
the Fayva shoestore, they have the shoes I want. I tried
them on and they
fit my feet but I didn't have the money to pay for the
shoes, so I put them
back and put my own shoes back on and walked out of
the shoestore. If I

of any way to get

You've got to go to England to get 'em. I got the last
two pair of blue
suede shoes at McCann's in Cambridge, before they went
out of business.
They were brand new. And they still are brand new. I
never took 'em out of
the box. I got blue and brown. I didn't wear 'em. I
don't know why. I had
other shoes I was wearin'. I wore a lot of moccasins,
so I didn't bother

bottom, except for the heel. You've got to lace 'em

One thing is shoes are worn on the feet to protect them
from any sharp obstacles that might cause a bruise or
a body cut.
Shoes are in the bible. Read the bible in the library,
it came out that you're not supposed to have sneakers
on, just plain shoes.
And not torn stockings.
Shoes? Shoes is what you wear, they carry you. Shoes
people wear. They're essential, they carry you. That's
all I can say.
I don't wear shoes, I wear what I got on here, on my
Slippers. That's all I know, they're slippers and I
wear 'em everyday.
That's all I know. I know when I broke my hip it cost
