I have literally loved these shoes to bits - these were the first pair of non-uniform shoes I polished when they began to get scuffed (a solid black leather background made the bright white 'thread' and silver 'needle' embroidery stand out better). The first bit to go was the the little rubber 'Camper' tabs on the side near the heel. The sole got quite worn down. Then Pierre chewed through the elastic mary-jane strap when he was a young pupster. Early last year, about 4 years after I first bought them the button finally fell off. I still have it somewhere, and the shoes are still completely wearable and comfy, but they just didn't have the same
Funky bright red ones! The only problem - they were just a tad bit too tite - these are a 38 when I needed a 39, and I couldn't take them back and exchange them. What to do, What to do??
I am sure that any shoe-fetishes out there would be telling me to 'suck it up and remember that style = pain', but considering that the reason to wear Campers is because they are incredibly comfy shoes, that seemed to be a rather ridiculous reason to hang on to these gorgeous shoes...
I won these on ebay last week, and put my red Campers up for auction... I can't wait until these arrive!
