I hate throwing out shoes, they have to be on their last legs before I confine them to the great shoe cupboard in the sky but I think this will be this pair's last season. Sadly, they're not ageing well and on a comfort level, I'd rate them around -5. They are just not improving with age. I hate saying goodbye to shoes but I'd definitely think my feet will be glad to see the back of them! Have you just had to give up trying to break in shoes?
