I'm reminiscing here, but...

Do you remember when shoe stores looked like this? Do you remember that smell of freshly scented  leather like a perfumed tannery? Do you remember sliding across the carpet in fresh leather soles after getting the full shoe horn treatment? Do you remember having your feet remeasured by a shoe professional? Do you remember your mum doing the international toe squash size test? Do you remember being told that those were your best shoes and you better look after them because you weren't getting another pair for a while. Do you remember broaching the subject of whether you could wear them to school or not? Do you wish it was still like that today?

So do I.
