Thank you for the topic. You gave me a good laugh with your answer this morning.
I am glad to see, that people start to move away from the sterile world of new out of the box shoes.
No offense to portnoy's and VR's shopping competition, but I am missing something... At least some passion.
Lately I started thrifting "again". I bought around half a dozen shoes which were in different stages and some of them would not meet my standard in their construction.
But, who cares. At an average price of 10 bucks and the same amount to "recraft" them I am happy to say: Variety counts
I'll post some pictures here within two weeks.
PS: Hey Speed, nice collection. Soul to sole
