sooo jealous of your Pennangalan purchase. And I'm sorry for your loss.
I've always wanted to buy from them but i'm scared of their sizing. I'd wanna try it on first.

Leah: Actually, Pennangalan sells them today, but I bought my pair from a shoe store near Camden Lock at least ten or twelve years ago. They served me well for a lo-o-o-o-ong time. Don't know why they chose to fall apart all of a sudden.  

I so feel your pain: I had a favorite pair of black suede over-the-knee boots that the soles literally crumbles apart in the space of a summer. Fortunately, a talented cobbler sliced off the entire soles and rebuilt them from scratch. Wasn't cheap, but was absolutely worth it! I hope you have such a talented shoe doctor in your future.

Melissa: Thank you! For your condolences as well as for your story of hope and resurrection. I do indeed know of a spectacularly good repair shop, a place I have taken knee boots in the past to reshape the calves. I'm sure they could restore a collapsed platform. The real issue is getting into the bowels of downtown Chicago to reach their shop. Next time an opportunity takes me there, I'll be lugging these plats along with me.

I"m sorry, but the thought of you walking along on an accordian platform made me laugh. Spring sproing!!

Jan: Ha! Well, that's not as bad as it has gotten in my footwear world. I once had a pair of ankle boots with a 3" thin, flat piece of plastic for each heel. And walking the 20 minutes to my commuter train one night, the plastic heel on one of my boots snapped! I had to keep moving in a heelless fashion in order to get myself home. Though, being me, I did do a mental calculation on whether or not there was a Parade or a Payless somewhere along my remaining route.
