By the Back Door.
Under the antler coat rack is a bench with the faded image of a checker board. A cluster of soda bottle stains looks older than your grandfather.
Tucked underneath the bench, always there, are these shoes. If not, they are on your feet because you had to run outside for something. Or when you came inside and kicked off your muddy boots, you put these on.
There are only a few sure things in this life—death, taxes, and the shoes you leave by the back door.
Indoor/Outdoor Moccasins (No. 5748). Made of buffalo and cowhide. Double-sole construction with lightly padded insole. Easy slip-on style. Perfect for bare feet. Order at least a half size smaller than normal. The fit will start snug, but conform to the shape of your foot with wear. Absolutely appropriate for men and women. Made in USA.
