It’s a little-known fact that Wayne Elsey, founder of Soles4Souls, the shoe charity, loves tools. Not that he knows what to do with them…he just likes polishing them and displaying them in his custom built tool cabinets. Wayne’s good friend, Fran, said “Wayne doesn’t know the difference between a screw driver and a jack hammer.” I saw this display of Italian tools in Florence Italy. I’m sure Wayne will want to buy several of these tools to add to his pristine collection. In a recent issue of Popular Mechanics, an article appeared called “Top 50 Tools Every Guy Should Have”. One of the tools they included on the list? A sledgehammer! Wayne doesn’t have a sledge hammer yet, so if you have an extra one, feel free to drop it by the Soles4Souls office at 2900 Lebanon Rd in Nashville. Wayne will thank you!

If you look at any pictures of the Soles4Souls RV, you’ll see the word “Clarks” above the driver’s and passengers windows. No, we’re not trying to let the world know our last name. Clarks Shoes are a corporate sponsor for the RV tour. From its humble beginnings in 1825, in the tiny English village of Street , Somerset , to a global company that manufactures and markets close to 35 million pairs of shoes a year, Clarks ‘ commitment to comfort, quality, authenticity and individual style has remained unchanged.
From careerwear to weekend wear, Clarks’ now provides men and women with comfortable, stylish footwear for nearly every occasion in their active lives. Walking along a side street in Rome, we saw a Clarks’ store and decided to take our picture.
