Our factory advertised for 200 workers this year but only five people came to ask for a job,” said a personnel manager at the Juyuan shoe factory in Guangdong province. She said rural migrants demanded higher salaries “and if you don’t pay, they won’t come”

They have africa.

Oh Lord. The shoes we currently import from India are all terrible and are killing my feet. Foot wear from Africa would be diabolical. I suspect that people who live in warm climates simply have no concept of how important shoes are in the colder parts of the world. This rule applies even within Europe where one of the reasons why the German army invading the Soviet Union in the 1940s struggled in the Russian winter was because their boots were not suited for the conditions. Certainly, they were no match for the Russian valenki.

The only way I am going to rescue my poor old plates is to splash some serious dough on a proper pair of shoes made in Northampton.

Does this mean that we'll have to work a whole week to buy a pair of shoes, like in't good old days?

Will we be buying shoes made in Northhampton again?

Will we be living on a diet consisting entirely of Hovis?

The ironic thing is that if you go to Russia you will see shops everywhere advertising "German shoes" :)

Would you settle for Derbyshire ones .

Men's boots, proper ones, IIRC, IfMyOldManRecallsKorectly, generally cost a week's pay, so I'm still ahead of the game here. :)

They'd be a bastid to get through airport security though I reckon.

Nice Derbyshire boots,they should be sold with a matching cloth cap though.

Yep, my old man said the same thing, a pair of boots cost a week's wages. He also

said that boys often went to school wearing their father's old worn out boots stuffed with

newspaper.Try telling that...etc.

Yeah, when I've been through airport security wearing a pair of proper heavy leather

(made in china, 25quid in a sale!) boots, I always have to take them off. What are

they looking for? Blue touch paper!?

Haha, yeah it's a total pain in the ****. I've held up a queue for a good few minutes while security asked me to take off my jacket... then belt... then shoes... Luckily my Prince Albert didn't set the thing off or I'd have been in trouble*.

*Just kidding :P
