Its 2.27 am I am not sleeping, I am thinking about later. I will be doing film interviews about fashion and so on today or well later on today and I really had no nervous bone in my body until I saw my sister … She takes it very serious and I tend to chill more... should I take things more serious I (that’s me thinking)? It is not really doing any good….infact it pretty much sucks and keeps me out of sleep, so upon writing this entry I came to the amazing conclusion that things taken too serious (in my case) leads to worry and worry leads to robbing of creativeness and no trust in God to help. So today I will rely on Him because I am pretty much in need of the creator’s creativeness …He is good at that.
Klaus Märtens was a doctor in the German army during World War II. While on leave in 1945, he injured his ankle while skiing in the Bavarian Alps. He found that his standard-issue army boots were too uncomfortable on his injured foot. While recuperating, he designed improvements to the boots, with soft leather, and air-padded soles. When the war ended and some Germans looted valuables from their own cities, Märtens took leather from a cobbler's shop. With that leather he made himself a pair of boots with air-cushioned soles.
Märtens didn't have much luck selling his shoes until he met up with an old university friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, in Munich in 1947. Funck (dont leave out the 'N'!) was intrigued by the new shoe design, and the two went into business that year in Seeshaupt, Germany, using discarded rubber from Luftwaffe airfields..
