Return of One More Thing

Posted by Dirck on 26 February, 2014

A lunch meeting takes all creativity away for today (which is better than utter exhaustion doing it), so I offer a very brief look back at a past entry.  I mention in August of 2011 the purchase of two pair of relatively good shoes, and in it I mention the likelihood of venom going forth against the makers if they don’t last.

Well, the local fellow who repairs shoes leaves me with reason to grumble.  Of the two pair, both of which I had to take in for attention, one was easily put right and the sole rubber received some praise; just a matter to replacing some de-laminating heels.  The other, though, was beyond redemption; the materials and method of construction render it impossible to re-unite the soles and the uppers.

That pair failed me in Spring of last year.  A year and a half does not a proper shoe’s life-time make, especially when it’s not the only shoe being worn.  Venom is therefore shaken upon the name on Nunn Bush.

I guess I’ll have to start saving up for some correctly made shoes.
