The older I get, the more I appreciate the value of a good-fitting, quality pair of shoes or boots. Due to some high-blood-sugar days (past now), I have quite a bit of neuropathy (no feeling) in my feet, although the circulation is still good, and if a shoe or boot doesn't fit right, I can damage myself before I even feel that it's happening ...
I spare no trouble or expense getting good shoes and boots, no matter what it takes. As I've mentioned, I never buy Chinese anyhow, and in this case, their product is universally junk so it's not an issue. Buy British!
