MICHAEL'S wife Penni is tired of throwing out perfectly good left shoes!
"It hurts to put brand new shoes in the rubbish," said Penni, who is saving
all Michael's left shoes in the hope of one day finding a left-legged man

"One year when we were in Europe Michael had three pairs of brand new ski
boots from his boot sponsor. In the end, I just had to put them in a bin by
the side of the road. It's just not right."

landmine victims. There must be someone out there who could use Michael's
left shoes... it would be great if he were a skier and a cyclist as well."
If you have any ideas, please drop Penni an email at
