I made a little foray into a couple of charity shops yesterday and was rewarded by an enormous bath towel at only £2. In the next shop I found (mock) suede shoes in purple and in a very fashionable style. Seeing them was to fall in love with them even though they were a size larger than I normally wear. I bought them without trying them on secure in the knowledge that if they didn't fit there will be a gentleman of the cross-dressing persuasion somewhere who will be delighted to take them off my hands via ebay at more than I paid for them.
The best bit is that with an insole in place they fit precisely and what's more they're even comfortable.
