RIP favorite shoes

Picture 1
yesterday morning i put on my favorite shoes, checked myself out in front of the mirror, and headed out the door. it was just like any other day. i wasn't being particularly harsh with my shoes. there was no running or rock climbing or even trudging through field or stream. i merely walked the few blocks to my shop. it was a very hot day and i was terribly sweaty when i opened my shop door and stepped into the air conditioned coolness. maybe it was the abrupt change in climate? i don't know. but i do remember my shoes feeling a bit roomier and more comfortable on the walk over. so i proceeded to do my normal opening routine and then sat down to eat lunch. that is when i noticed the first telltale signs of decline. and well you can only imagine that it was all downhill after that. so sad, so very sad. matt suggested i bring them in to get fixed but i'm not sure it's worth it since i only paid $5 for them. i am certain i have gotten my money's worth. still that is little consolation. i will miss my little brown oxfords. a moment of silence, if you please.
