These are my work shoes. Bit grim are they not? The back stiffening has completely gone and until recently when I armed myself with a tube of superglue, they used to let water in through the soul of the left foot.
They are scuffed at the back and have been re-soled about 3 – 4 times. If I was being scrupulously honest I would admit they had a slight aroma too.
I only have these one pair of work shoes that cost me about £50. Normally work shoes last me about 6 months being worn from 7am-7pm 5 days per week.
These little babies have lasted about 3 years so I feel I have had my money’s worth.
For the last 3months I have been keeping an eye out for some new work shoes. They had to be smart and in leather that were comfy enough to wander around town, a lower heel to my current shoes and in black. Oh, and did I mention cheap too?
Since joining Ebay, I have put in a number of bids on slightly worn shoes with no success.
Until I won these. £8 incl P&P from Wallis in black leather. Worn once apparently (they look unworn to me!)
They arrived last night and are currently gracing my feet as I type and are very comfy.
Very pleased, they suit my limited budget and for £8 if they can last until January then I feel I have had my money’s worth.
My old shoes? Well they walked themselves out of W Towers and committed Harri Kari in a black wheelie bin.
Rest In Peace.
