Whose Shoes Wednesday…The Answer

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo asked, whose shoes?

Manolo answers, it is the Martha Stewart!

Congratulations to the Manolo’s internet friend Beth, who got the correct answer to this most difficult Whose Shoes, even before the Manolo gave his final hinting!

    I’m probably going to Hell for this, but I love the fact that Martha’s not wearing a helmet. She probably SHOULD, because she’s not that good, and I probably should because I AM that good and if I hit something it will be at speed, but helmets have got to get a lot better before I’ll wear them rollerblading. I can’t see properly in them, your scalp sweats like a pig at a disco, and they smell like that too!

    Ahhhh! Satan on skates!!!

    Raincoaster, at the risk of sounding like a royal jerkface, I’ll say if that’s your opinion, then you probably don’t need a helmet, either. As a cyclist who has been saved (twice!) by helmets, I’ve become the Supreme Helmet Advocate From Hell. They *are* that good, and I’ve pressed that point to lots of newbies. I know all the arguments, and they’re all bad: “I’m not going far!” or “I’m not going fast!” are the two most common ones heard. All I can say is those two numbers are variable and the only number that matters is the distance of your head to the ground. THAT number is a constant, and is the only critical number.

    As for your arguments: First, wear it correctly and you’ll be able to see fine. Second, studies have shown a light colored helmet reflects the sun and results in a cooler head (I apologize for not being able to cite the study). Third, some models have removable pads that can be removed and washed. However, I don’t have that problem; I wear a wicking do-rag under my bike helmet and that takes care of the sweat and the funk.

    (We all have our buttons; mine was pushed. Please flame away; just please please please keep it civil. And I’d also like to say this about my two crashes: One was my fault; on the other I was ridden off the trail. No matter; all cyclists, and most rollerbladers, know it’s not a matter of *if* you’ll fall, but *when*.)

  4. raincoaster Says:

    I’m not going to flame. I’m just going to regret buying a black helmet. If you’ve only crashed twice you don’t use your wheels as much as I do.

  5. class-factotum Says:

    I am not disputing the wisdom of wearing a helmet. But my fiance and I were rollerblading one day and some kid yelled, “You’re not wearing a helmet!” I wish I had told him to shut up and mind his own business. I don’t need an eight-year-old telling me what to do.

  6. Victor Says:

    Yeah, a black helmet definitely leads to one having a hot head–no pun intended ;)

    Raincoaster, those are just the wrecks where my head — or helmet, rather –smacked the ground. Not to be bragging, but one can’t put several thousand miles on a bike and expect only two crashes. The last was just last year, and had unbalanced panniers as a contributing factor (um, that one didn’t lead to helmet smacking the ground).
