Barefoot On The L Train & Haikus

Maybe it was the 5th Grade Poetry Café that we attended in the morning, or maybe it was just having a little time on the L Train, but inspiration struck and I started penning GladSoles-inspired Haikus this week.

Along with my work as a big-time sandal mogul I’ve also been doing a little production work.  So, this week I found myself location scouting in Manhattan and Brooklyn, in search of the perfect place for a mid-June evening shoot.  By the way, if you’re ever wondering how to find the L train, just follow the stream of hipsters in ironic tees, skinny jeans, thick rimmed glasses and tiny hats.

A Haiku is a 17 syllable poem.  It usually breaks down to 3 lines, 5, 7 & 5 syllables each.

Here’s what I came up with:

Hot sticky summer

City walking in GladSoles

My feet are happy


Location scouting

Bushwick-bound, with GladSoled feet

I could walk all day


We’d love to hear your GladSoles-inspired haikus too!
