David’s Shoes

I’ve referenced previously how my brother shares my passion for shoes.  It just so happens that he is being featured in a Taylor Admissions magazine for just that.  The following is the article I wrote to accompany his photo (left):

“Being a redhead means that people often stare at your hair.  David Thrush has the opposite problem; people stare at his feet.

David is known around campus for his colorful choice in shoes.  He has over 20 pairs in his collection, which includes red, teel, green, and blue.  Of all his fancy footwear, though, his purple and white wingtips are his favorite pair.

According to David, he has always had a passion for shoes, but he started collecting vibrant dress shoes when his sister (who also collects shoes) got him a pair for Christmas in high school.  “My collection has grown from there,” he said.

David, who is a member of CREW, works in the Admission Office, which requires him to dress up.  Most days, his outfits are centered around his shoes, “My shoes have to match either my shirt or tie,” he said.

So if you happen to see a redhead walking backward around campus giving tours, make sure you glance at his colorful shoes…that is, if you can miss them.”

You make me proud, little brother. 🙂
