Lordy, I do love this thread when it pops up again. <snip> I will
inform you that folks from his neck of the Carolinas only need one pair
of shoes - because they only wear shoes during the coldest part of the
year. This would be from January 15 to March 1.<snip>
That is why only size elevens are sold in that area. They are a tad hard
on the younguns but have a better's chance of being right on the back
Close, but no ceegar. My present pair of shoes are actually size
13 wide wide. That's because my usual size, 8 1/2 EEEE was unfindable,
and the 13s were the only size I could find that were wide enough. I
got them in about 1997, and they're not very warn at all. They're only
worn outside, they're not house shoes. I'm thinking of buying another
pair tho, and store them, in case these wear out.
You'll never get anywhere if you believe what you "hear".
What do you "know"?
