Vilem's Shoes

There is something strangely captivating about a pair of worn out shoes.  They speak to you like looking into someone's eyes and reading their soul.  They tell you so much about the man who wears them.  This pair was particularly beautiful to me.  The precise, yet frayed and worn, unraveling, stitches, the simple round shape, and even the fading and washed shade of unique blue, truly caught my eye and screamed for my attention.  Vilem is just as unique, as his fantastic shoes, and although you can learn about his character from his shoes, there is still a great amount of mystery to both.  They are perfectly beautiful in all their flaws and yet you can't help but wonder where they have been, what they have seen, how many experiences they have been through.  All this crossed my mind in an instant...all because of a pair of perfectly worn shoes!
