Shoes

I want a new pair of Doc Martens, yes I do... they're one of the two manufacturers whose shoes I can wear comfortably. However, I seem to recall that a few years ago production was outsourced to China. At least, I recall several heated conversations with Cait (fondly known as "the Bish") where she implored me not to purchase a pair.

It appears I have a dilemma... smart, comfortable Docs manufactured in China (and thusly support the current "cheaper is better/50 Cent for President of India '08" corporate mentality) or risk getting a pair of trainers like my ill-fated Vans, which now sit in my closet unworn, because after a month they pinched the tops of my feet.

I've no idea where Sketchers are currently manufactured (survey says it's likely some third world country as well), but they're the only other shoe I can wear comfortably. Their semi-casual and formal lines aren't so grand.

I'm also looking for pointy boots with silver buckles... I can't recall who made the last pair I had, but I want another!
