Chris Heidrich

Chris is from Brisbane, Australia and began his journey in 1996 with some friends on a trip to Chicago to pick up Sean, and then on to England to see the Euro ’96 football tournament. Thus began a steep learning curve as he realised the folly in trying to haul 4 pairs of shoes wherever he went.

Since then, he has lived and worked in Edinburgh, Scotland answering telephones; Stoke Poges, England as a guinea pig for clinical drug tests and as a bartender (mandatory for Aussies in the UK); and Gardiner, Montana as a breakfast cook for scary looking guys that spoke in grunts.

Having spent most of his time in the UK and US, Chris is dreaming of testing himself in magical places like South America and Africa.




Chris is known for his reliance on his glasses, use of big words, and overreacting to small inconveniences. Chris’s original boots proved to be inferior to the point of nearly costing him his membership. Although he loved them, they had to go and he now owns a pair of Colorado’s.
