Zora's Sandals

Dear Source:
I still wear the pair she made for me in 1967, when Alan Grammer dragged me almost kicking and screaming to her place. Custom made sandals? Why I could buy buffalo sandals for $5.95 a pair? So what if they wore out in a couple of months.
But, I picked out the style, was measured, and went back and put them on when she was finished and wore then for a week before going back so she could trim everything up. A month later I brought my wife in and had a pair made for her. Thank goodness.
