2 years ago, I bought excellent quality winter shoes. I spent 1/3 of my monthly income on them. When my friends asked me what proportion my shoes cost, I told them the reality . and that they were shocked and said that albeit the shoes were great, I could’ve bought something cheaper.
But I’m 30+ now and that i know that good shoes aren’t just a silly waste of cash , it’s taking care of your health. In these 2 years in my expensive and warm shoes, I’ve never fallen down on ice, I’ve never been cold, and I’ve saved tons of cash on medications for my back and my joints.
