So, about four years ago my trusted shoes gave up and I had to buy new ones. I'm picky when it comes to shoes and I couldn't find anything I liked, but I really had to get new ones right away, since here where I live, you'll freeze to death in the winter without proper footwear. So... I just bought a cheap pair that didn't look too bad and ended up wearing them for four years until last spring they finally gave up.



There was some knitwear around the edge, but it was so frayed that I cut it off in March thinking, I would never need the shoes. But I kept them anyway, because deep down I knew I'd be facing the same dilemma that I had four years ago. Today I went to a shoe store and came out empty handed. So I dug out some hot glue, an old woollen beret and scissors, and a half an hour later I had these



Let's see if they hold up until I find a pair I like enough to actually buy them.
