Ok, getting back on topic...

Sorry it took so long to come up with these photos.

Here is a shot of my Kong shoe box.



Here is the lid.



And here is the end with the info.

Great to see new pix of that Shawn. The one I have just has a label affixed to one end with very similar if no tthe same graphics, and I no longer have the lid, which was orange but had no graphics on it at all. It's in storage now, and came from The Alpharetta Bargain Store, a close-out shop in my home town near Atlanta, GA in the early '80s. It was given to me by the manager who was a family friend, since the shoes in it would be large on me today, much less then. He gifted it after overhearing me trying to convince my mom to spend the six bucks on 'em just so I could have the box for my collection. Once my mom explained that I dug monsters, he just pulled the pair of shoes out - unremarkable black leather heavy duty low topped work shoes with no graphics, just an inside stamp of size - and gave me the box. They must have had thirty or more pairs in stock, and were there for years after. And yeah, the place is long, long gone, the building having be razed and some useless chain business or another plopped down as the only semblance of a headstone on another otherwise unmarked grave of a haunt of my youth.

Glad Bob posted a photo of that older one. When I get back to Atlanta sometime next year, I'll excavate mine.

...so, of course, over the Christmas vacation we'll all be HAPPY to accompany our wive's while they shop for shoes...as long as it's in some old musty shoe store that's off the beaten track! ""Um, yea...Uh, what was that honey? Oh, yea they look great, make you look thin...Hey! What's that old orange box up there in the corner covered with cobwebs?"

Do these shoes have extra width to accommodate the opposable simian big toe??
