Default Shoe Horn? (pun intended)

Thought you guys would get a kick out of this...

I imagine the shape of the shoe might form a short BLH, heh heh.

Perhaps a link that takes us to the horn. Can't find it even with the search.

Never mind, on the third try it took me right there. WTF?

The 1st time you click it diverts you to the home page (the canadian home page in my case). Once you have your cookie clicking on the link takes you to the shoe page. Seems a waste of a good pair of Nikes.

Makes me think of the line from that Billy Joel song...

"don't waste your money on a new set of speakers, you'll get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers"

In this case you'll get both the cheap sneakers AND a new set of speakers!

It's a line I'll never forgive him for.
