This pair started a more luxurious life with my Nana, no doubt pampered and cared for like lapdogs. They were worn for a brief period of time by my mum who brought them from England to Australia. I have probably worn them for the longest and for more miles. I have taken them to the cobbler more than three times and on the last occasion, he said "love, it would be cheaper to by another pair of boots". So I wore them for another year, until I was leaving bits of heel behind like Hansel in the forest. The fearless Douglass took me shopping for 'boots n books' and amazingly we found 2 pairs of brown boots that I liked.
