shoe heel

this morning on my way to work i noticed that the heel had come almost entirely off one of my boots. (that's what happens when i wear the same boots 4x a week for two years, and also go hiking in them. (they are not hiking boots by any means.) i'm surprised they haven't fallen apart sooner.) i managed to stick it back on, but who knows how long it'll hold. i think i'll be spending the day stamping it into place.

mental note: it would be helpful to keep an extra pair of shoes at work for occasions like this. it's tough to get a shoe repaired while the shoe is on a foot.
