I have a favourite pair of shoes.
Beige cutout platform sandals by Giani Bini that I bought on clearance 5 years ago.
And I cannot find a replacement anywhere.
So I took them to a shoe repair place yesterday to see if they could put in new insoles. $28. Seriously?
Mind you this is a cleaner/ shoe intake place near work that lacks hustle. Indifferent to making the sale, getting my business. I don’t tend to linger or return to those kind of places.
I think I paid $19 for my shoes and don’t trust a business that doesn’t act like one with them.
If I could change the oil of my old carburetor car, I can put a new insole in for heaven’s sake. Youtube, I’m thinking.
I will keep searching for those special sandals tho…
