Grumble...

First, to my friends who knew gblake, I'm sorry that I didn't know him--or at most knew him in that vague "you look familiar, did we talk about Life, the Universe, and Everything at a party last year?" way. My condolences to his friends and family. 37 is too young--and to survive a lung transplant, and then to die of complications of surgery for acid reflux--it just seems so sad.

My "tragedy" is nowhere near that scope. Perhaps my Retail Maven friend dindin, or another of the DC Locals can answer this one. Where can you buy Ecco around this town? My beloved Black Eccos have suffered Catastrophic Heel Failure--complete delamination of the outboard right edge from front to back. In fact, it looks like there is literally a ragged "chunk" missing from the bottom of the heel at least a quarter inch wide at the front and expanding to nearly a half inch at the back. I should take a picture, because I can't for the life of me figure out what could cause such drastic destruction without me noticing!

Despite the years (owenthomas do you remember when you or Greg turned me on to Ecco?) these shoes have stood up to the worst I could offer...anyone who knows me knows that I'm rough on shoes, inside and out. I liked these shoes so much I'd actually [don't freak, my friends] POLISH them myself! I know...boggles the mind, doesn't it?

Okay, off to work in my Black Shoes That Aren't Ecco's But Do Okay But Certainly Are Not So Nice That I Know Or Care What Brand They Are...
