Waikato Times letter of the week #48

From the 14 May edition. Spelling, grammar and punctuation (or lack of it) are all exactly as published.
Running on flat
When the car tyre is flat you take it to the garage and put more air pressure in and in many cars the tyres are unevenly inflated and you feel the car pulling to one side. Now your footwear reacts in a similar way like your car tyre, when you are tired you are in a way running on flat tyres.  You can’t have your footwear inflated but that’s how accidents happen when you are running tired just like a car with a flat tyre in some ways.
The right tyre and the right shoe for the job.
Active footwear for active lifestyles means the shoes that match your lifestyle walking/working or standing still for periods of time.
Overheating – consider that during the summer e.g., over heating of footwear (perspiration) can add to the risk of unnecessary accidents. In sub tropical conditions particularly both feet will produce more than a table spoon of moisture, (perspiration) per hour.)
Footwear plays a insignificant part in almost all daily activities than is commonly appreciated.
Are your shoes running you tired on low and irritable foot pressure?

So here are Phish on Halloween 2010 with Little Feat’s “Sailin’ Shoes”:

I wear jandals close to all of the time ... and I drink a lot of wine. I'm thinking now there's a connection.

Or not.

(Sorry, jandals (tm))
