…Adding… Apparently, people are wearing these shoes for cancer awareness. But we can still have a bit of fun.

    Dad shoes indeed! At least isn’t not like one of the prior Governor’s costumes.


  2. - OneMan - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 9:31 am:

    New Ballance, the offical shoe of big guys…

    New Ballance, the leather vest of a new generation.

    Yes I wear New Ballances

    Industrial Hemp has a wide variety of commercial uses. In fact,…


  4. - G'Kar - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 9:47 am:

    “Hmmm, maybe if I click the heels of these shoes three times we will have a new way to balance the budget.”

    Why yes it was very dark when I got dressed this morning. Why do you ask?


  6. - SAP - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 9:49 am:

    Next the Governor will try to get the words “new”, “balance”, and “budget” into the same sentence.


  7. - SAP - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 9:50 am:

    Drats G’Kar…you did it better and faster.


  8. - Annonin' - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:05 am:

    We think the cancer awareness sneaker day is wednesday


  9. - Whatever - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:07 am:

    “I think you misunderstood me when I said my administration was going to hit the ground running.”


  10. - CPA - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:11 am:

    can’t he afford better shoes?


  11. - illini - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:20 am:

    The older I get, the less I am concerned that I am always sartorial correct. But the one thing I find to be most important is that I have very comfortable shoes. And if wearing NB shoes with a suit makes you feel good, I say go for it.


  12. - Well then - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:20 am:

    Yes I’m running again


  13. - Dudley Magoo - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:22 am:

    House bulk item says suits and sneaker day is tomorrow, May 1st

    My Red Ball Jets couldn’t get any bounce.
    My PF Flyers wouldn’t fly.
    These lower expectations to ground level.

    JB saw a vendor outside the capitol building selling day old tomatoes and decided not to take any chances.


  17. - Generic Drone - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:43 am:

    New Balance, hmmm. I’m old school. Give me Keds anyday.


  18. - Reader - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:54 am:

    Still wishing for a “LIKE” button, because these shoes deserve one.


  19. - Bourbon Street - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:55 am:

    “My fashion tip of the day: Gentlemen, always match the color of the soles of your shoes to the color of your shirt. It’s a timeless look that will never go out of style.”


  20. - Res Melius - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 10:56 am:

    Next year Crocs!


  21. - Ducky LaMoore - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 11:10 am:

    Man… if they only had the Velcro straps instead of laces… that would have been a classy look…..


  22. - I Miss Bentohs - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 11:29 am:

    I’ve decided to embrace Rauner’s governorship and instead of governing, I will just keep running.


  23. - Streator Curmudgeon - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 12:07 pm:

    The older you get, the more you realize Dad was pretty wise after all.

    –A devoted NB wearer.


  24. - A guy - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 1:58 pm:

    New Balance/Old Balance?
    Quit gripin’ and just put ‘em on. We’re late.


  25. - Huh? - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 2:12 pm:

    With all the standing I’ve been doing, I need comfortable shoes.


  26. - Left Leaner - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 3:03 pm:

    Just watch how fast I can get to Mike Madigan’s office now!


  27. - The Magnificent Purple Walnut - Tuesday, Apr 30, 19 @ 3:17 pm:

    Was he wearing a white belt?


  28. - ArchPundit - Wednesday, May 1, 19 @ 5:39 am:

    As OneMan says the shoes for big guys–I wear them. Even more than that they have extra wide sizes which are helpful for those of us with EEEE width feet.

    I’m telling the Pritzker people–hire me to be a body double, I even have the New Balance.
