My support to my beloved Indonesia
You should see at the bottom of the my new shoes box to guess what I mean by "support" is.
I need a walking shoes and this shoes should have additional function for hiking as well. I do not want to have several shoes for different purposes. After few hours looking for different type of shoes and various price tags, I end up with this one.
I like its model and functionality. But, the most thing that makes me "proud" is that the best shoes that fit with my foot and my interest is made in Indonesia. Ok, you may say that I am a bit chauvinist or irrational. But, what can I say? This shoes really fit in and it rise me with another feeling - my patriotism (or anti-neoliberalism?? what the hell!).
There are other types of them (from the same brand), but they are made by Vietnam or China. My nationalism mixed up with my needs, and somehow both of them agreed on one point. I love good product, with affordable price and I hope Indonesian industries keep on trying to make their goods (export) to be as good as the one that I bought today.
