Its still looking like a rumor, but the hype is building for Vans to release the Waffle Sole Case. Originally made as a promotional item, the piece caught the eye of a couple fans on Offthewallsite.net who have been clamoring for its release. The latest discussion seems to point out that Vans is rumored to release these on their website and in stores during the coming weeks. One member posted pictures of his purchase, which should make everyone a little more confident that these cases are indeed coming out. Keep your eye on the Vans website ready to make a purchase.
Oddball Shoe Co. expands its line (The Oregonian 12/11/2011)
Their production took longer than we anticipated, but that's because we wanted to get them just right. They are specially designed for the large-tall man, available in 3 awesome colors (black, red, olive green -- blue is coming soon) and are Made in the USA -- right here in Portland, Oregon.
Oddball Apparel has big plans for 2012, so stay tuned!
For 19-year-old Welshman Carl Griffiths, the cons of having size 21 feet include having to special-order shoes, not being able to wear regular men's socks, and getting rejected from rugby clubs because his footwear doesn't comply with their strict dressing codes. The pro: Lots and lots of ladies. In an EXCLUSIVE story, The Sun reports that the 6'5" Griffiths "is constantly faced with the same chat-up line: 'Is it true what they say about men with big feet?'"
We here at Oddball can tell you: Yes it's true, ladies. Big feet = big shoes.
Longtime Oddball employee Dan passed his Oregon Motorcycle Permit Certification test today, scoring a perfect 100%. Way to go, Dan!
He spent his day-off cruising the streets of Portland, just him and the open road, making the long trip from one Ross discount store to the next. But sorry ladies, he's taken.
On Monday, the Oddball Crew arrived to this scene of carnage outside our loading dock door. Was it another accident at the famous 18th & Thurman blindspot? Not this time.
