Ok, so this is a bit random, but that’s what Open the Happy is for! Anyhow, I’m super excited about this because – finally – I CAN GET SHOES IN KOREA! HUZZAAAHHHH!!!
Basically, I went to the Adidas store in Times Square Mall in Seoul. You can’t find any big shoes there readily available, but there’s this funky looking barber shop chair with a touch screen that lets you create your own shoe design. SHAZAM! That’s what I said when I saw it. SHAZAAAAM!!! So I got that etched into my shoe. Ain’t that totally amazing? I picked the colors and patterns of the entire thing, sole to tongue to laces to even the inside material. BAM!
Now, it costs roughly 170,000 won, but – hell – I’m just happy that I don’t have to wait till I go back to Canada once a year in order to stock up on shoes. Now, if the fancy ever hits me, I can get some cool shoes made. Granted, it’s only Adidas, so if I’m feeling for a different style of shoes, something more subtle and less Shazaaaming, I won’t be able to find them. But at least I’m not totally out of shoes, right? So now you know where to get custom made clothes in Korea and custom made shoes, though, I don’t think you’d be wearing both at the same time. Might not match…
