So here comes the bonus season. A nice surprise. I think it may have something to do with the green shoes I ordered a while ago.
A few years ago I found out about this guy in Beijing who had allegedly retired from the Beijing Shoe Factory and started making custom shoes out of a small storefront in Gulou. I became a loyal customer since, in part out of my affection for fine handmade leather goods, in part, admittedly, because of my fat feet that don’t fit well into standard sizes.
Lawyers and bankers will instantly get the pun behind the green shoe. Yes I had these made for that reason. These are my 8th pair made by that guy.
My 9th and 10th pairs are on order now. With the bonus the 11th and 12th won’t be far behind.
And no, no white shoe.
