I spoke to a lady running a shoe shop about something similar last week,whilst watching the GF trying on yet another pair of sandals ! We agreed that the more you have the more difficult it can become to decide on what to wear with what ? if you see my point. Maybe the other thing to take into consideration is the quick "fix" that some people get from buying something new,they don't consider how long it will last,in fact they probably wouldn't want it to last too long so that they can go out and buy something else ?. Younger people who have been brought up with cheap disposable fashion clothes and shoes have little idea or interest in buying quality longer wearing items,and the thought of having shoes repaired or clothes altered is a totally alien concept to most.
