Just Like My Dad

A commenter at BAGnewsNotes points out that Obama's shoes have already had at least one trip to the repairman to get half-soles.

My father used to do that. He wore very nice dress shoes daily for his work, and instead of forking over a couple/few C-notes for new shoes he took them to Bart's Shoe Hospital on Beekman Street. They don't have a website. Never did. Never will.

Hat tip to Marcellina; over the pond, among the big mountains, woodshedding away in The Practice Room.

Well, I'll be darn. I hope this photo was taken before he started to run for Pres. I mean if Gov. Palin can spend $150,000 for clothes. Then Sen. Obama should at lest treat himself to some good shoes.

It's hard to believe anyone does that anymore. They charge so much for re-soling that buying new seems cheaper. Then again, he may be in a different market for the original pair.
