Some time ago I had blogged about my shoes being on the brink of tearing apart, but thanks to the cobbler back in Sitiawan its lifespan was fairly extended.
Last night, I went out for a session with friends. While warming up, the stitchings from the cobbler's repairs gave way on the left shoe and the front half of the sole started flapping about. Not wanting my night to come to a premature end I ripped it out and kept on playing. Amazingly it mostly held on throughout the session but it did suffer. On top of that the right shoe was starting to fall apart as well.
It was only a matter of time.
4 years isnt too bad for a pair of badminton shoes I guess.
You've served me well. RIP~
