I tried to make a repair, with some cellophane tape.Do they look, better to your eye?




Maybe first I should polish the exposed parts?


Polish isn't needed, they look great.

Lovely, but I think duct tape would last a bit longer.

They were Clairs de fins. I actually like the Irish oysters better, but that was all they had.

It's amazing how a few holes in the uppers help ventilate and cool your feet down. Better get to work on the other shoe so you will have a match.

I've repaired a few damaged shoes in my time and am sure that by re-cutting a new vamp, facing and quarters I'm sure you'll end up with a shoe that looks as good as new - you may as well go for a new sole at the same time !!!

Sell them on ebay. They're now "vintage".

Where are you from? I don't think I have seen these, at the Oyster Bar I attend.

I prefer Bras d'Or, from someplace Canada.

Can I do any of this, for myself?

I'm from Bonn in Germany. Small city far from the sea, so not many oysters to chose from. The Irish oysters I ate in Düsseldorf. They were wild oysters, not from a farm. Standard oyster fare around here would be French farmed oyster. Those are easy to get and can be tasty as well.

I don't think I have eaten Canadian oysters, but I'm sure they are very nice.

Do you like to put something on them?

Everyday at the Grand Central Oyster Bar, they have more 10 types to offer. Most are wild and many from Canada, and far from the West Coast too. I never saw a European oysters there.

No. I like the undiluted taste of the sea.
