In England this is called 'braced'.

It is also possible this shoe was prepared for a trial. - A 'braced' trial shoe is easier altered (if it is necessary), than a trial shoe that is fully welted.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
