Sunrise at Bobs' - a really big shoe.

sunrise@bobs shoe repair

A new location. Bob is a well known homeless advocate, and he repairs shoes. Ups on one side, New Balance on the other.

Shoes as a sign of one's social rank and status have been around for milleniums:

"In ancient Egypt, the sandal demonstrated a person’s rank in society. Slaves either went barefoot or wore crude sandals made from palm leaves. Common citizens wore sandals of woven papyrus, consisting of a flat sole tied to the foot by a thong between the toes. But sandals with pointed toes were reserved only for the higher stations of society, and the colors red and yellow were taboo for anyone below the aristocratic rank."

I have no red or yellow shoes....
