One of the items on H's wish-list has been some branded boxing boots. We both have a thing about second hand shoes (we think they are gross) but we are having to open our minds as part of this challenge.
So, this week H started on her hunt for some boxing boots on e-bay, and within a couple of days found some advertised as 'worn once'-perfecto. She snapped them up for £10.50 including the postage; a saving of £26 compared to buying them new.
The boots arrived today and here they are:
We all performed a smell test and and they scored 1 on a scale of 1-to-stench. There was a slight odour on the outside of the boots but this may be because they came from a smoking household.
There were no toe creases or visible signs of wear, other than slightly dirty soles and a little toe scuffing. So all in all H is very happy and looking forward to training in them, next week.
There may be hope yet for me in making second hand shoe purchases, Dear Readers! Have you experienced success in buying second hand shoes?
Love Alice, H and Treacle x
