Went to buy steel toed shoes today. Work requires them ever since someone dropped a 50 pound test weight on his toes and broke them. The toes and not the weight.
So work buys me a new pair every year. Last time I found the the style and size I wanted and opened the box only to find a pair of wornout running shoes. OK, someone put the steel toed work boots on and walked out with them Understandable since if you work a legit day labor construction job, you have to provide your own safety equipment. I can see someone doing that. Today however I can't figure out.
I went to try on shoes at the Shoe Carnival. I think I settled on the only pair that was not on sale in the whole store. Anyway before then I opened a box of steel toed Woverines and found 1 new and 1 used boot. Both were Woverines. Same style and the used one wasn't really in bad condition. So while the incident last year I could comprehend, today just didn't make sense. On legged man who just has to have NEW steel toed boot? It was the right boot BTW. If that helps.
