I have a problem. Several, actually: I'm a grad student, and will be for some time to come. That is to say, my financial situation is abysmal. What's more, ever since discovering SF a couple years ago, my taste has shifted towards "nicer" (read: more expensive) accouterments, thus squeezing my already anemic budget even tighter. Worse still, you nefarious bastards with your "shoe porn" thread have sparked in me a lust for fine footwear- footwear that is, quite simply, out of reach. Unless... ...unless I buy previously-owned articles. But as somebody with mild-to-moderate germaphobic tenancies, the notion of sticking my feet into somebody else's shoes is a little...icky. If I needed to clean shoes made from fabric, I'd probably just grab a bottle of idophor from my box of brewing supplies, soak 'em, and call it a day. But obviously I can't soak a pair of Allen Edmods Sanfords in an aqueous sanitizing solution... Suggestions? -Surfrider PS: As a student of medicine, yes, I know the chance of me catching something that will make my feet rot off is slim to none, but still; the psychological "eww factor" is there.
