The heat and shoes...

A couple of months ago I reported that The heat killed my shoes. The heat of the footpath was more than the glue could take and the soles of my trainers separated from the uppers.

A friend who'd read the posting has just sent me this e-mail and photo:

"I bought a new pair of Hush Puppy boots 2 weeks ago... with rather soft soles...
I walked outside for about 20min at Festival City last weekend, entered ACE
hardware and wondered why my lovely new boots were making such a racket... the soles melted-off the heel!"

I have the same problem. Most shoe rubber disappears very quickly during summer becuase the heat softens the rubber making it more susceptable to abrasive wear from walking.
