Project by Roman - THE BOOTMAN posted 01-02-2017 06:41 PM 671 views 0 times favorited 10 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Another unfinished project just got finished! These are my jive shoes and I go back to my High School days and the good times I had at our school sock hops. That was in the days of Elvis and when his ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ came up on the record player, the skirts would fly and our bottoms would gyrate that even a Chiropractor would grimace.
This boot is dedicated to all the girls that taught me how to dance! Oh, what memories!


Well, it’s one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, now go cat go…...... Just don’t you , step on my blue suede shoes….... AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

And don’t forget the pack of smokes that were held in place with our rolled up t-shirt shirt sleeve. Sure were some pretty girls back then. Now I’m going to be thinking of those time for the rest of the week
