My work boots gave up the ghost.
As you may see from the photo, the soles have "rotted" away. Actually, it's a funny story.
When we bought the "farm away from farm" I decided I needed some real work boots...it was a mess
up there, and the old LLBeans were not doing the job. I asked the farmer to get me some work boots from the work boot store and he obliged....but what he neglected to say was he bought them from
"THE BACK ROOM"
(translation: the section with rejects, overstocks, very old boots, and those poor little shoes no one else wants)
I was thrilled with my new work boots......until a month later when the soles began to......flake away.
Now, admittedly, the farmer is known for his...thriftiness....but these were good quality boots.....15 or so years ago.
I managed to squeeze 2 years out of them, but when I went to put them on the other day, the sole stuck to the floor.... and I lost a good deal of it.
This time, I went WITH the farmer to the work boot store. I now have a PERFECT
pair of work boots...with an in-tact bottom.....I am a happy worker. (not so much, I just love the comfy boots.)
