    That link was for a completely different manufacturer that offers their customers a service. Those shoes are not the same.

    But digging about the SAS FAQ

    Anybody here worn Ecco, and can compare them with the SAS above?
    I get 8-10 years from a pair of Ecco's, and it just so happens I have to replace a worn out pair in the next few months.
    Thanks.

    Not me. Never heard of them. But I'm going to look into them now.

    I happen to be wearing my eccos right now. I have had them since probably 2010. They aren't super stylish, but they are very comfortable. And they aren't terrible looking. They aren't Rockports.

    I bought new black dress shoes a few months ago and ended up with a pair of Eccos. The other pairs in the shop were considerably cheaper and they felt like it. They are actually quite comfortable to wear and still look good.

    Yes, I was reading about that one the other day. Radiation beats up electronics pretty badly.

    Things that don't wear out? I'm 61 and I own firearms that are older than me! Oh, and there's the anvil in my shop. Made sometime in the late 1800s and, well, still works fine. (The advantage of no moving parts, I guess.)

    As an admitted laptop snob and anti-Apple bigot, I just bought myself a refurbished 2015 MacBook Pro after using the 2017 version for work. It's a really nice piece of hardware and the Retina display is amazing. iTunes can still kiss my butt; but the laptop is the nicest I've ever used.

    I just bought a new pair of LL Bean boots.
    The classic ones with the rubber soles.
    My current pair are over 20 years old. I wore the heels almost to the ground.
    I'd say I got my money's worth.

    Which ones/model? I've never shopped with Bean, but have heard many good comments re their clothing.

    These be they:

    Men's Bean Boots by L.L.BeanĀ®, 8

    Of course now they come in different varieties but this is the basic model that's been around forever.
    Great for moderate snowfalls, and especially slushy wet stuff.

    I have several pieces of vintage (1940s) Revere Ware copper bottom pots and pans. Mine don't look as nice as this pic from ebay, because mine get used.
