I hope that whoever recycles the shoes at Goodwill takes the tag off and throws it out because, if the unthinkable happens to the hobo that gets my old shoes, Carrie not be summoned to identify his body.

And knowing you, that has a high probability of happening. :lol:

I am kind of late to the thread here, but to those who are considering ordering a Road ID I do have a couple of suggestions. The owner of the bike/tri shop I worked at was an EMT for a long time and he had some first hand experience that he always shared when discussing getting a Road ID

Although the "shoe" badge is popular, it's not actually the best one in his opinion (TooBusy, you may have some experience here as well) if you change shoes often, or are cycling or hiking, you may not have it with you. Also if you're in a bad accident with a hard impact, you might not actually have those shoes on. He always suggested a wrist worn ID based on that alone.

I wear the Wrist ID Slim... 24/7. I have a bunch of different bands so I can change it up once in a while and now with the "badges" it's actually become more of an all the time accessory for me. It's also helpful if you hike/camp/ski/gym... anything where you have the potential to be injured and may not actually have ID with you.

Mine doesn't have the orange border. :(

Although I'm thinking now I should get a wrist one-- I don't really like having it around my neck. Sometimes I end up putting it in my waste pack.

I don't really need it for any immediate health concerns, although it does have my blood type on it. I figure emergency workers would really only look at a medic alert bracelet anyway?

I have a medic alert "badge" on mine as well as the EMT/Medical short form for penicillin allergy. So it's actually replaced my medic alert bracelet!

Bracelet or necklace is more likely to be found. If it isn't on the id then it will be a 'later' thing to be tracking down info. If it is in your gear or clothes it may not be found quickly if at all. It all depends on the kind of emergency it is.

I wear my slim all the time for the reasons mentioned above - mine has no health info, just name and contact numbers.
