You don’t need money to have fun! Japanese man collects the 179 pebbles, 32 pieces of glass and one nut that got stuck in the sole of his shoe over a year

  • Neruno Daisuki showed off his large collection which he gathered over a year 
  • He started his collection last June as a hobby during Covid lockdowns  
  • Illustrator is thinking about separating collection between right and left shoes

A Japanese manga artist has spent a year collecting the 179 pebbles, 32 pieces of glass and one nut that got stuck in the sole of his shoe. 

Neruno Daisuki took to Twitter to show off his collection which he went to painstaking lengths to collect over the past year by using a toothpick to remove them from his shoe. 

He told IT Media: ‘When I was removing the pebbles caught in the groove on the back of my newly bought sneakers, I felt that it was a waste to just throw them away, and I thought it would be interesting to collect them.’

Mr Daisuki said he started his collection last June as a hobby during Covid lockdown but he became so enthralled by it he carried on. 

He says that the walk from his home to the convenience store provides the majority of his collectable items because lots of gravel became stuck in his shoe.  

But the work was not always easy.

When Mr Daisuki was trying to extract some of the items from the grooves in his sole he realised that if he pulled too hard with a toothpick the item would shoot across the room and he would sometimes lose them. 

He has presented his collection on a large amount of grid paper to show the sheer volume of the fragments he has gathered.  

The illustrator now wants to continue his hobby and is thinking about separating the collection between his right and left shoe soles.
