A pair of old boots, a pair of well worn running shoes, a pair of sandals back from vacation, footwear has the real travel stories. Think of a pair of shoes or boots, get the image in your mind. You might see a pair of fisherman’s long hip wader boots. You might think of cowboy boots worn for a lot of line dancing sessions about a decade ago. You might see a pair of kid’s shoes, worn out from the school year and then summer camp. Any type of style of footwear will do.
Now imagine the story behind the footwear. Where have they been? What adventures have they had? How many different forms of flooring and dirt have they walked over? What roads have they taken, or not taken?
Create a story as if the shoes/ boots were able to think, feel and wonder about their own future.
