Toiling at Hobbs today I attempted to convert an avid suede desert-boot fan to convert to the patent leather dark side of d-boots.
The silver lining was her husband. At around 70, he perked up on viewing the patent leather &uttered his first&only sentence of his 35 minute visit; 'this material was banned in convents, guess why?' I shrug 'you could see the young ladies bloomers in the reflection, broke my heart when the nuns realised' followed by an animated laugh (think Frank Bruno).
Who'd have thought a simple (but bloody gorgeous) pair of boots would stir such emotion in a pensioner ...
