I didn't recognize you with your **** on

Walking down the street this evening, a man on a motorcycle waves to me. In this neighborhood, that means I know him, so I wave back. But with all his protective gear, I don't recognize him at first.

A few steps later, I realize that the motorcyclist was Hobbit, and the protective gear that was throwing me off was his shoes.
