I couldn't do that. It's very likely that these will end up in the trash, or on your shelf as a daily reminder to never do something like this again lol.
I'm sorry but those are amazing! The bar lacing sets it off!This will force me to pull the trigger on the 4060 i've been on the fence about.
Sounds like my girlfriend...
I don't own a pair of tankers but i do have shoes in both lasts. Most people are the same size in barrie and trubalance. However, some have said because of the hand sewn nature (gathering of material around the stitching) of the NST/tanker, it causes the barrie to fit a little tighter in the toe box than a ptb would. This should be considered if you are already tight, width wise, on the Trubalance.
Does anyone know how much the Shell Royal Imperial Longwings went for (price) when they were new? They have the v cleat and 5 nails.
That much (extreme) rolling/folding looks like the shoes are too big for you. I know you said you had to bend the shoe a lot, but even at full stride she shoe should never look like that. IMO.
I know a few guys in out industry who make 125- 150K a year pullin wreches on heavy equipment, and thats working for someone else who owns the shop. If you have your own shop you can make 10 times that. The shop I work at does 4 million in sales and repairs per year. Only 7 guys on payroll...The owner has it pretty good.
Your father sounds like a hardened, old school shop guy. Like the men I have been around for the last 10 years. But I agree, it tends to be the reaction I get in the locker room at work. Fancy boy, fonzie can tend to be the names they call me, all in good fun. But the funny thing is i'm straight as an arrow, 200 lbs with 8'' suit drop and more than capable of killing them with my bare hands ha ha. Different strokes I guess......thats not the worst of it. I'm also fully...
