- Alden split toes. 11 B. Gummy soles. Needs some serious leather conditioner (doing that now). Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I always wondered about shoes like that. Do people really buy high end shoes without even knowing that you need to polish them on rare occasion? Or, with so many people used to wearing sneakers and throwaway dress shoes, have we lost that knowledge?
It boggles the mind. I've seen at least one pair of really nice shoes that were clearly donated because the owner didn't have the faintest idea as to what shoe polish was and thought the shoes had been ruined by all the scuffs. Worked out for me, because with some conditioner and polish they were fine, but I can't quite wrap my head around why somebody would sooner get rid of $400 (or more) shoes for want of $3 shoe polish.
