Jeeze, but these young’uns here will think we’re talking in some sort of weird “code”. I remember all that stuff and the stinky, stinky stuff with a cotton ball applicator we put on our Big John leather boots, some sort of silicone that slathered on and we set outside due to the stench…
Kept em water proof for a wee bit… 😯
Reminds me of my “roller skates”…the cranked onto our shooes with a wind up key… was a real buggar when all we had were Keds Tennis shoes… really had to wind those clips tight to keep em on!
Skate all day, take em off and try to walk and fall flat on my face!
