didnt mean to humble brag. I'm just picky about my footwear comfort wise. I'd be happy if they cost 25% of that.

usually lots of dirt or other stuff in there after they start coming apart
Ive never prepped them. Just show goo inside and they are good till the soles are gone. Makes me wish they did that at the factory.

Oh yeah, right, this is THT. I need to be more specific. Contact your broker to liquidate enough holdings in the most vulnerable fund of your portfolio to sufficiently offset the liability to be assumed, then buy your wife some new shoes.

Hipsters buy new-
to go with the tight pegged pants they show in the ads now - trying to get men to be more stylish I guess? or buy more /different clothes

There is a reason some people can afford 500k boats and 80k trucks. Sometimes it is as simple as not blowing $80 on a new pair of shoes when 50 cents of glue will do the trick.
