I can't bare the idea of throwing away these shoes and buying new shoes to ruin at work.  Enter Sugru.  My job is physically demanding and torturous to shoes.  I needed something real sturdy but also soft-It's my precious feet we're talking about here.  This took a few days because I let the layers of Sugru cure in between applications.  The shoes had a hole in the front toe and the back heel supports had been totally smashed.  Two things my bosses weren't thrilled with.  As a bonus I decided to pretty them up a little too.  

Step 1: The Problem

My girlfriend says I look like a Hobo wearing these.  And even though I work at a very casual and relaxed food retailer with a bizarre Hawaiian theme(hint, hint), I need to still look reasonably presentable.  Also in the dress-code it states that shoes must have backs.  It's even more important now with 3 year-olds being given shopping carts.  They are at just the right height to ram the backs of your feet.  
Pour avoir essayé le sugru fait le buzz mais c'est pas top
