New Jersey Ate My Soles

A former Chlorine Factory out in the Jersey Wastelands between Newark and Jersey City. It's one of the worst superfund sites in the state.

So why "New Jersey Ate my Soles" it's simple, because it did! While wandering around this place I stepped in what I thought was water. Note the word Thought. Myself and my friend continued through this place and I thought nothing of it. At least until the next morning when I went to pack my shoes as I was flying back home to Canada, and the shoes were destroyed. The leather was black, the rubber soles melted. Only the carbon composite re-enforcements were left intact.

They were good shoes, they did their job for a good two years. Thankfully I still had my sandals to wear for the flight home.
