Locally made shoes

We bought Miss4 some good winter shoes today. The thought of sweat-shop labourers producing our shoes weighed heavily on my mind, so instead of going to The Warehouse and buying our usual $15 pair of shoes, we went into McKinlays - one of the few shoe manufacturers left in this country. And they make them right here in town.

They are just like the ones in the picture but Tomato coloured. Miss4 thinks they are the coolest thing she has seen :)

Guilt-free shoes, worth paying quadruple the price of sweat-shop ones. And hopefully these will be very hard-wearing.
