These are my favourite shoes – I’ve had this pair of DM’s for about 5 years now (I remember wearing them lots in the Sixth Form which I started in Sept 2002 so they might even be seven years old. They are well worth the money due to how long I’ve had them and how comfy they are.
I tried to find another pair so that I could replace them but I ahven’t been able to find anywhere that sell the right pair – the catalogue my Mum gets no longer has DM’s in there and the factory outlet store is near Northampton and so I’d have to drive all the way there for a replacement pair (which at £40-50 a go I’m not sure if I can afford a replacement pair)
So instead Mum has suggested that I take them to the cobblers and see if they can be repaired – after all they put new soles on Mum’s favourite shoes about three times in a row because she loved the shoes so much!
I’m hoping that they can stitch the strap back on again otherwise they are very poorly shoes.
