BOTTLE MAN HAS A NAME!!

Bottle Man's name is ROBERT! I saw him this morning as I pulled into a parking spot at my 7-11. Here is what happened:

K: "Wait, I have some bottles for you!"

B: "What?"

K: Jumping out of car, "I have some bottles. Let me get them."

B: Walking around to the side of my car, "Ok."

K: Pulling out bags of bottles, while trying to look at Bottle Man's shoes, "What is your name?"

B: "Robert."

K: "Robert?"

B: Noticing me looking at his shoes, "Yes, Robert. I have blisters on my feet. That's why I have trouble walking."

K: Noticing that the shoes, while not terribly old, are some kind of hard, looking plastic. "Do your shoes hurt your feet?"

B: "Yeah, I need to get some of those things you put in your shoes...those ummm...what do you call them?"

K: "Inserts? Robert, I will buy you some. What size shoe do you wear?"

B: "14 and a half. Thanks for the bottles."

K: "No problem. You have a good day now, Robert!"

I was praying for Bottle Man...Robert...on my way into work and asking God to help me find a way to learn his shoe size. Thank you, Lord!!

Here is where you all come in. The picture on my post is of men's shoes from the 1850's. They look uncomfortable, don't they? Well, Robert needs a new pair of shoes and I want to get him some that are soft and comfy and will be good to wear in the upcoming bad weather months. But, I have no idea which men's brand of shoes might fit the bill. I need your suggestions!!!
