Heck... These don't just look "not new"... They look down right ancient!
I bought these flats back in March. I fell in love with them immediately and had to have them. When I got them, I loved them so much that I wore them pretty much every day, rain or shine. And now, their "souls" are old and worn.
I am considering having them re-done on the bottom... But I worry that it may be a pointless effort.
But at least I got my money's worth out of them. At least, I think I did. Heck, if I'm considering having them re-cobbled, I would say so.
