Since we’re busy on walkabout (which is an Australian term for “gone”), we’re reposting this from the archives.
A person’s shoes say a lot about them. So, how would you survive The Hunger Games with your favourite shoes?
Very sensible, but very loud. You’ll be one of the final eight, but don’t expect to win.
Hippy. Resourceful. Not a good fighter, but perhaps better on the alternative foods.
Those cold nights will be more comfortable, and the soft soles will aid your light tread. But you’ll feel every rock you walk on. Ouch. On the third day your feet will give and surrender to the Careers.
You’ll loose them while running at the Cornucopia. You’re so dead.
Good try. If they don’t have hard soles, good idea. However, they’re likely to give blisters. You might last…a week? If you’re lucky.
Oh no. Unless they’re literally stilettos (and you could stab someone with them), you won’t make it past the Cornucopia.
Easy to keep on, and not too bad for running. They don’t have much tread on the bottom, so avoid all creeks and mud banks (you’d better ignore any dying Peetas). But watch out for fireballs, because they’re synthetic.
Go home while you have the chance. Everyone in the whole arena will know exactly where you are at every moment. But if it comes to kicking someone, you might stand a chance.
Not good for running. But soft soled. Use your ingenuity, make some form of way to keep them on, and you’ve moved up to survival range.
Beware. They will fall off before you leave you plate. Expect to be blown up.
Bad for running, but dry. Your feet will sweat (even worse for running.) Not a good idea. You’ll be one of the last dead at the Cornucopia.
Mime is reading St Mallory’s Forever and dreaming about chocolate. She dreams about chocolate a lot and wonders if this is normal. (Don’t answer that.) She misses WiFi, but is enjoying her holidays. She is also wearing her favourite shirt which says: where flutes go, treble follows. Cait bought this shirt for her. Who knew, right?
