Just a quick one today as I just got two pairs of shoes back from the shoe maker having put new soles on them. Can’t believe that this is the first time in my life I have done this. I’ve been walking around for years with cheap plastic soles. 🙂 And what really strikes me: If you take care of the shoe and you’ll put on new soles more than once the whole thing is even less expensive than the stuff you get here. Must say I am really happy with my Loake’s!
