Shoes 24 July 2005
So I'm on the road again. This time I'm working the back alleys of the deep south, wandering this familiar landscape of splinters and rust.

In North Carolina I wandered into the town of Burlington. It is the place where much of the nation's furniture is made. But I saw no furniture shops, only long stretches of forgotten and forlorn buildings. A few were shuttered. All were eclectic.

Burlington may represent the front lines of the furniture trade, but when it comes to trendy footwear, a traveler has little choice but to keep on moving.
