  • Shoes Don’t Last

    So I don’t know what gives,  but lately (last few years or so) shoes just haven’t lasted. Usually the sole has worn  out or ended up with a hole in it after what I consider to be an extremely short period of time. Rarely do I get more than a year out of a pair of shoes, often just a season.
    This is with expensive (> £100) as well as cheap shoes. From special hiking boots to trainers to Birkenstock sandals (the latter lasted my grandad for over 5 years at a time, worn all day every day).
    Latest victim are my new boots bought in December: the lace just broke. *sigh*
