After this winter's floods, and the serious stuff being debated at the Copenhagen summit on Climate Change, it seems frivolous to get excited about waterproof footwear.  But, life goes on, and there is no doubt that our feet are going to get wetter - especially for people who live in especially-damp places like west Wales, for instance (Like me, for instance.) And, however many pretty & practical pairs of wellies there are on the shelves these days, you can't spend your entire life in rubber.

When the organisers of last year’s Trade Unions Congress set the conference agenda for Liverpool they could never have envisaged the media attention generated by the debate which was designed to discuss the merits, ethics and consequences to their physical well being of women who are expected to wear high heels in the workplace.

The debate not only gained a massive number of column inches with accompanying images in both the broad sheets and tabloids but also received saturation coverage on national TV and radio.  Who said that the footwear industry was at the bottom of the pile when it comes to the media spotlight?

A warm welcome from the President - Here we are embarking on a new season in a tough retail world. Let's hope for once the weather will be kind to us all with a lovely long hot summer. That will cheer us up and make our bank accounts look better. Here in South West Wales it has been a very wet and mild winter.  In my establishment the next season’s stock is flooding in. Where will it all go? We are still crossing our fingers for ice and snow with the hope of selling more winter boots.
