The lasts? The leather? The designs? The workmanship?

A combination of the above?

More generally, what makes a better shoe--and how could you discern superiority from inferiority simply by picking up a leather shoe and examining it?

Does it matter, they're probably all made in some place like India, or some island in the Asian Pacific : by a $2.00 a day person.

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.
