This should be invisible

Get Outside

Last winter my Mags gave out on me, leaving a hole in my shoe between sole and leather. I'd had them for a few seasons and had put them to good use in the city slush. The sole is a good two inches up from the ground all the way around and made of rubber, perfect for Toronto weather. I'd hoped to get a new pair once this wintery weather started so I went back to where I bought them in the first place, Get Outside. It's my favourite shoe shop, along with heel boy, and it was voted best shoe store in blogTO's Best of Indie Toronto. They've got a ton of great trainers, like Royal Elastics which I love, but they didn't have a pair of Mags in sight. They seem to have switched to something called Clarks but they're not the same.

So now I'm stranded, with no winter boots to make my way home, and I can't seem to find a pair in the city that's got style but can also keep my feet out of the wet stuff. Even stranger is that many shoe stores are already pushing their spring line-up of strappy sandals. Where am I supposed to find my snow shoes now? Some friends have told me to make the hike to Trove on Bathurst, maybe they've still got some boots on sale.
