I find it so interesting to see how people incorporate their passions into the rest of their lives. As an example, a typical person might own a traditional waffle maker. However, someone obsessed with Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, a sports team or entertainment franchise may outfit their kitchen with a licensed waffle maker or toaster so their food comes out shaped or branded with their favorite character or logo. We see brand representation everywhere. From using sports paraphernalia as home decor to being walking billboards showing off our favorite brands in the clothes we wear. It’s not uncommon to incorporate our hobbies and interests into our everyday lives because seeing glimpses of the things that bring us joy tends to muster feelings of happiness. Sometimes, we simply see something extraordinary in the ordinary. While Hidden Mickey books show where you can find intentionally placed Mickey Mouse images around the various Disney Parks, I hear so many Disney fanatics comment about finding their own Hidden Mickeys in the swirl on the top of their coffee or in a group of clouds. We spend so much time around board games that we see hex shapes and dice in places like the patterns on the floor.
Most recently, we found a pair of shoes that screamed, “I’m a gamer’s shoe!” Last year at this time, Scott wrote an article about how to create custom board game shoes, but this was different. These shoes were part of the normal Lugz footwear line and just happened to have a hex pattern, a design commonly found in modern board games. We’ve shown you a number over the years including Survive: Space Attack, Take It To the Limit, Whistle Stop and Cryptid to name just a few.
We’ve shared several thoughts on the various pieces of Lugz footwear we own, including casual sneakers for women, men’s sneakers, hi zip boots, Mallard boots and fashion footwear to name just a few. We’ve always been happy with the various styles and options, in addition to the comfort and durability. The affordable prices are a bonus. The latest discovery is the Lugz Men’s Clipper DLX Oxford Sneaker, decked out with the aforementioned hex pattern and will be perfect for our next board game convention! For those who aren’t as crazy about the hex design, these kicks are also available in stripes.
But as much as we want to sport our favorite game designs, they don’t always match the outfit. A pair of Lugz Stockwell linen shoes was a nice addition to the shoe collection, offering a clean, timeless look that goes well with jeans or shorts. Every wardrobe needs a pair of shoes that multi-tasks like Lugz Stockwell linen shoes do!
As we roll into fall, I’m looking forward to pulling my Lugz boots back out of the closet and wearing them regularly. I cannot say often enough how pleased we are with everything from their line that we own. Here’s your chance to win a pair for yourself.
