I've always had trouble buying new shoes but since T J Hughes reduced their shoe stock I've found it impossible to get really comfortable ones in Liverpool. I've had a mail order catalogue a few times from 'Hotter Shoes' but I decided to take a trip to their shop in Southport today.
It took me nearly 2 hours to get there - one bus to Bootle Strand - a 30 minute wait then another bus to Southport. I've found that I can do it in about 90 minutes in future by getting a bus to Walton Vale and picking up the Southport bus there.
It was worth all the travelling though I had a nice trip in to some open countryside and spent a bit too much on these:
Have you ever tried a new pair of shoes on and known straight away that they will be comfortable, well these where like that.
