...of course, I like the feel of the warm sands of Waikiki beach between my toes. Plus the shoe has dead cells, I like being alive and growing. Footprint all the way live!

and if the waves came onto the beach and washed away the footprint, what would the shoe think then?

No, that is why you leave it behind...and you can make as many as you like.

so r, when i tie my shoelaces, i am actually tying myself to my shoe.......

and although i might lose a footprint, my foot is ready to create a new one any time.......

kinda makes me want to jump up and down with joy!

Haha...Anne, careful when you jump up and down ...your shoes may drop...remember to tie shoeslaces properly :) .....to your question i would rather be a good shoe that leave "hard" imprint footprints wherever i go ....btw will the shoes be able to leave footprints on rocks ??

If I jump up and down, I might only leave toe prints.

If I walked on a rock, I might be trying to keep my balance and all that might be seen would be marks scraped onto the surface....like petroglyphs drawn on the walls of a cave. Drawn by people both ancient and timeless.

...anne,, marks scraped on rocks, you must be one bony girl. What's stronger, hour toe bones or the rock? Careful what you wish for.

If I wish that my toe bones were stronger than a rock, then i might suddenly find myself falling through the center of the earth and out where not even I could follow my own footprints.

Or, I might wish I were a raindrop that looked like a person parachuting like a leaf down to the ground in time for supper and double helpings of everything. Because as we all know, a well fed foot is a thing of beauty.

for the footprint to exist the shoe has to exist, so would I still rather be a footprint, knowing it somehow being the same- a shoe?

yet, the shoe can exist without the footprint. but if it does, how is the shoe impacted?

is the footprint the mark representing the life of the shoe?
