Damn boots

My boot broke today. The zipper came off the tracks, in such a way as to make clear that it will never function normally again.

The boots were not terribly expensive to begin with, (I think they were under 50$.) but the zipper in the other one went last year, and it cost me 30 bucks to have it re-done. I checked back and it would be another 30 to do this one. (no surprise)

Normally I would chuck them and get new ones, but they look good, are comfy, and generally function well. I have a bad track record with shoes, and they don't seem to last long regardless of how much I pay for them.

So do I sink the 30$ into the boots, or do I break down, chuck them, and go boot shopping? (Your votes are welcome.)

I vote for new boots

That's the way I'm leaning too. It's more money, but Hey - New Boots!

And it's hard to argue with that.

I think it may be time to retire those boots. But if they are the ones I remember, they have served you honourably and will be fondly missed :-)
