Maybe British shoes just have the same quality as British food?

:dunno:

Delicious? 

Now I'm just picturing you sitting there with a dirty Chuck Taylor on a plate, cutting it with a fork and knife.

Maybe your feet are just more powerful than mine.  Don't go near Quentin Tarantino!

We need a thread where everyone puts up pictures of their oldest/ most worn out shoes and figure out this discrepancy in how long sneakers/ shoes last!

As a guy I wear out my shoes all the time. Admittedly they're almost exclusively running shoes which I've put 600-800km on roads or trails first, but after another 6months - year of daily use I tend to go through the sole. The bloody things generally don't wear fast enough tbh. Have a big back log of potential walking shoes I need to get to.

How about a thread where you have to choose your most beloved shoes - shoes you should probably just throw out, but you can't because they're so darn comfortable and cool.

I've got a pair of older-than-dirt Bally's women's loafer type of shoes with about a 2" stacked heel that has a menswear look to it.  I need a shoehorn to get into them, but once they're on, they just conform to my feet so beautifully.  The leather is so soft and supple to the touch too.  They look great with jeans.  I've had them resoled once too.  But to be perfectly honest, they've done their duty and should be retired.  I just can't bring myself to do it.

Yes, a pair of shoes has wormed its way into my heart.

I only ever wear the same pair of trainers, normally they last me about a year, then start a new pair.  However they aren't released regularly so whenever they are I always buy shedloads, I think I have 5 unworn pairs in my wardrobe currently waiting to be cracked open.

Trainers, like jeans are a pain, they reach perfect wearability and comfort, about 3 seconds before they fall apart.

Today i learned of Pia Klemp. She is my new hero. 

She deserves more than to be put in a thread about small, unworthy things, for sure.  I'd never heard of her.  Thanks to you, now I have.

:love:

I have questions.  A lot of questions. ( A fun game to play is if you can guess where this recipe is going next)

Does ANYONE still use voice message for phones these days? Voice message is for landline phones. Why is the option to leave a voice message still offered for mobile phones and Skype when nobody answers, the phone/computer is off or they are in a place with no signal/wifi? Nobody I know listens to voice messages. We leave text messages or send an email.

I had voicemail on my last phone for call screening, I never answer a phone call if its not in my contacts. I prefer texts as well, but some businesses and older relatives do not text. I have gotten annoyed with email spam to point where Im now telling people I don't use it. If they want to contact me and aren't already in my saved contacts they will have to text or go through vm, my s.o. is still using email so if it's important enough emails can be screened through that account.

I guess im just becoming a little recluse, but honestly I love the peace of mind of cutting out any unnecessary communication, I'm not even sure my new phone has VM set up on it.
