On my recent trip to Tallinn, I had to track down Estonia’s answer to Converse All Stars. And tracking I did…
After trawling both souvenir shops as well as shoe stores, I was finally told that the best place to buy these special shoes made by Gong was at the post office (?!) in the center of town. Trekking through the snow, I made my way there, took a number & waited.
There I was, discussing size & fit with a postal worker!
I tried them on, asked for a few post card stamps, paid for everything & I was on my way!
“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays (this girl) from the swift completion of (her) appointed rounds (to find these shoes!)”
