Your Shoes and the Journeys You Undertake

My Timberland Shoes!

You may consider me to be crazy, and it’s possible I am quite mad. Why, you might ask, why I am writing a blog post about my Timberland shoes. However, I’d like you to stay with me, as I write about my Timberland shoes and the journeys you take.

Shoes are critical to the comfort of our walk and our gait. Do you disagree? I challenge you and encourage you to wear a pair of uncomfortable shoes and see how far you go. A week back, I discovered a pair of shoes I had put away because they pinched my toes. Since times are tough–financially–I tried them on one more time. I figured I was going to save some money, but no! When I tried to wear them, I transported myself into a world of agony.

Therefore, on the journeys you undertake, ensure you own a fabulous pair of shoes and a spare pair.

My Timberland

I bought my Timberland shoes many years ago in Bombay. Since that fateful day, I walked the streets of many Indian cities, traveled to the mountains, walked along the slippery tops of waterfalls, waded in rivers, and even walked in some sandy areas. Sometime in 2017, we did a solo car journey across the central heart of India.

Over this time, my Timberland shoes have stood me in good stead and become my faithful companion. They took some time to fashion themselves into the shape of my foot, but after we solved this initial teething problem, we became partners.

Your Packing List

The journeys you undertake are always better with a good pair of shoes. They make it easy for you to walk, yet I am sad to report, very few people mention the importance of a good pair of shoes on these trips. Most packing lists include cameras, lenses, filters, tripods, writing accessories, memory banks, memory cards, spare batteries and chargers, and a few other accessories.

Almost no one talks about shoes. When you consider this, it is incredible because the shoes you buy travel with you from place to place and become your companions for years. When their time is done, remember to gaze at them with affection, and look back at the journeys you undertook together and the stories you have shared.

Yes, my Timberland shoes experienced much with me, and for this, I am grateful.

I have been around the block a bit. I've lived in four countries, and in many parts of my country. I have been fortunate enough to meet some really good people, and some really lousy ones, all of whom have taught me much. I am passionate about photography, writing, Indian history and continuing on this grand journey towards death.

  1. davidoakesimages – DERBYSHIRE. UK – Freelance Photographer and lover of the Countryside and Wildlife.I gained my Photographic qualifications in Manchester and then started my career as a Photographer with a North West Regional Newspaper. From there I moved onto an Engineering Company then a Publishing Group. This appointment created an interest in Sales and Marketing a disipline into which I moved. 25 years in Sales, Marketing and General Management at Director level with market leading and multi-national Publishers was both exciting and fun. But like most things, a time for a change came along and I opted to start my own Freelance Photographic business and Photo Library. We specialise in Landscape, Travel and Heritage plus photographic reviews of new Canal Boats for the magazine of that name....a great way to earn a living whilst having fun. More oftern than not I have Carla our Director of Greetings and Buster our Head of Security with me, both like to chat and the occasional biscuit will bond any friendship....just don't touch the Nikon's..

    I am a fan of Keen Boots and Trainers. Introduced to them over 15 years ago. It is the footbed comfort that I fell in love with, really does mould to your foot and no matter the terrain it cushions the foot. Boots are my essential next to my camera, so they have always suffered excess ware and hardship in all weathers.

      Ah. We dont get Keen Boots ans Trainers here in India. Boots are essential. Not always given due importance

  2. Sigh. YEARS since I have worn shoes. Like 25+! …Well Rajiv, Why is there no Comment button in your blog? Why do I have to give my e-mail and whatnot EVERY time tho there is a box (ticked) for Save my…? Tiresome. 🙂
