He's gone!

Great story! I would have loved to see the "gusto and flourish!"

Yeah, I saw the 4E shoes at WebExpress. I don't need them that wide. The 2E width should be just fine. If I were just buying the shoes, I would have ordered them from WebExpress. But...

I would assume that they look very similar to their K90 high top, seeing at they seem to keep the same look between their K80 and K70 shoes. However, I do not know for sure.
