I bought a new pair of work shoes about a month ago and they made me hobble about a bit for two weeks. Last week I noticed that one of them already had a hole through the leather sole. Bloody hell! I'd obviously been favouring my other foot to take some of the weight of the other painful one.
I went to one of the Timpson's in the city and they charged me £50 for a resole!!! He even had the cheek to offer me soles for £60 as they were more hard wearing! How about giving one that doesn't wear out in a month!!! The shoes were £70 in the first place.
