We got sole

Today I present a double ententre for your viewing pleasure. This long established, independent (!!) shoe shop has been in the Kings Road for many years. (For non-native english speakers, you need to pronounce this "ahh-soles" to discover the double meaning)

Little bit of London trivia. Up until 1830 the Kings Road was just that - a private road owned by the king for nipping down to Hampton Court.

OMG! I've been unable to comment for several minutes here because I was laughing so hard. Do you think they thought, to heck with it, we have a memorable brand or, did something get lost in the translation here?

HAHAHA!! that's SO FUNNY!!! Wouldn't that be funny if that was actually someone's name and it wasn't on purpose?
maybe a guy named rick wanted to open a shoe shope. so he came up with Rick's Soles = R's Soles = R.Soles
It COULD be possible!
