ronwhitenordstrom2

…not even online!  Ron White has received a lot of press lately about his line of oh-so-comfortable shoes, but I can’t wear them.  The smallest size I could find at the boutique and online is a 35/5 and it wasn’t just a little bit too big, something that can be helped by insoles, but MUCH [...]
