    Hello to all so long it;s been, a news I have, but not so pleasant.

    At the beer garden on Wednesday late, a bad night I had as a conversation mixed badly with drinking. A nationalist with shaved head, did not like the open heart I displayed, and decided to make the point physical. Out the back I slipped , to preserve the face which, cannot afford a smashing. Too much to drink dizzy I wandered on, stopping at 1 place for dancing, where you can pay a woman 10$ for 1 song (which I did not). A corona I did have, which on top of thoese earlier, proved too much for my holding.

    Woke the next day fully dressed, inside the bed alone but without 1 shoe. Today I did find, in a poor state, within an ally behind #2 bar.It's history since our departure, I can only imagine...

    Any hope, does it have?

    Everyone should have one pair of distressed shoes at their disposal.

    Thank you,for all your suggestions. I put they right away in the trees, to protect from more creasing. These are Church's (a Trad brand),and if I lose them, I will only have 2 pair of shoes left. I tried to make a repair, with some cellophane tape.Do they look, better to your eye? [​IMG] Maybe first I should polish the exposed parts?

    I am in a good mood now, because you reminded me that I haven't eaten oysters yet this year. So I just did,
    What kind were they?
    You're welcome.

    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 !!!

    Those look just like the new line from Gordon Rush. "Babylon," scratched leather lace-up, hand-detailed frayed canvas. Keeps yours or buy new at Nordstrom for $150.

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