Just to give a little history lesson, in 1965 in Sacramento, California Keith Richards suffered a massive electric shock when the strings of his guitar brushed against the stand of his live microphone knocking him flying off his feet. After waking up in the hospital an hour later, the medics told him that they believed that one thing had saved his life; the rubber soles of the Hush Puppies he wore on his feet. Life saving shoes these are!!
