More in the Jezblog 'my own shoes' series ............. this time Jez is modeling heavy duty metal toe work boots on a visit to a mine ......... this stuff will be all the rage in the Fall shows ........

I am wearing a ton of mega safety gear the mine operator insists on........ these guys were mega serious on safety........ the training in using the respirator was very thorough......... alarming and reassuring all at once........

In the picture...... I am in the 'man trip'....... a mixture between a cage and a tiny train carriage that takes you the bumpy 5 miles to the coal face.....

I must sleep mines are so tiring........... I always come away from an underground visit to a mine with renewed respect and liking for miners.......... not sure I could do this everyday....... but more tomorrow.......

Cheers Jez XXXXXXX

PS...... Sorry to anyone attempting to speak to me on the phone...... the cell signal is pretty poor in West Virginia anyway...... and by the time you are down the mines....... hehehe........ even Apple technology can't deal with that yet :-))
