I guess I am being misunderstood. Does anyone make cheap leather shoes aka moccasins? I've got my dads old cowboy boots and
dress shoes.

Thank you for all of the replies, I am wanting the best of both worlds. I believe that even though
dry leather can be an insulator, it is a very poor insulator. Leather becomes a conductor when moist.

From my memory people that worked around high voltage and people that worked in vocations that
exposed them to open electricity were barred from wearing leather soled shoes.

At any rate, I find it unbelievable that there are not any permies making leather goods that under
privileged folks can afford.

and my daughter. If there is a for sale forum I either cannot find it or do not know how to surf it.
The format of Permies is very difficult for me to discern.

Thank you

The list seems to be endless, facts are facts. It is all about capitalism. Where can the big corps squeeze more out of the consumer.

I drive a '97 Honda with 235K miles on it. I do not drive much at all.

On an electric car, by the time you mine the copper etc, smelt the lead, transport said materials to China etc for further processing,
and manufacture of finished components ship the finished components to the factory that assembles the electric car you are way upside
down in your carbon footprint. The electric car may last 10 years, then you have to dispose of the used batteries. Over the gathering materials.
building and shipping, the Pruis leaves a much larger footprint than a full size hummer. The study and facts are out there, google is your friend,
this time.  I do not approve of any current powered vehicles for mass transportation.
