Gotta get you some higher profile clients. If you put your mind to it I bet you could be the Canadian Johnnie Cochran.
I actually really enjoy my work as a staff legal aid lawyer. I concentrate on the law, as opposed to chasing down my clients for payment. I'm not convinced I could be a business person. Plus, I have free time to banter with you weirdos.

Is there any problem with buying something that one cannot use but is possibly unique in the world?
Then by fluke or force, try to turn that item into something they can use ... or destroy said item in the process?

Asking for a friend.

Iike, for example, white LBBs? Nah, perfectly fine.

I was sitting in my mother's house in London, Ontario late yesterday afternoon when I received a text from Quantum who had a theory I might be interested in this pair. I bought them immediately. They are without doubt the rarest John McHales that I have ever seen. They date to the early 50’s. Canadian vintage shell shoes just don’t exist. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this pair. I will post more pictures and research when they arrive. Thanks Quan!

Glad they went to a great home!
I woke up about an hour after you got them and would have probably hit the BiN button as well. Would love to see more pictures after you clean them up.

Secrets don't make friends.
Just go back a couple days ;)

Love the stitching on that pair. Too bad they are so narrow they would crush my feet after just a few steps.
@CWOyaji Can you actually stretch shell 2 widths?
