It took me ages to track a pair of these down in my size. Love them and the story behind them:

It is indeed a nice story, you`re probably aware that Adidas also brought the `Broomfield` out as a kind of legacy/follow up to the `mallison`,  Broomfield of course being the old home of his team Airdrie.

So I gave up my job as a planet saving recycler. Been there done that and this week moved into the rag trade in a big clothing distribution warehouse. 

When I went for the interview and they showed me around as usual the QC area seemed the most layed back and I made a bit of my QA/QC background and threw in that I was also very parnickity about my clothes and footware. Someone must have fell for it as I got the job. 

:biggrin:

Basically when each order arrives in goods inward a random selection of boxes from each order are opened and given the once over. Any issues with the sample check and the boss will send the whole batch for a 100% check. Standard stuff. 

At the end of yesterday's shift the QC boss women collared me, gave me the all important piece of paper that allows you to stroll around full of your own misplaced self importance and asked me to locate the order as it was for a 100% check the next day. 

The place is huge, probably about two football grounds and at one end on four floors, supposed to have about 28 miles of overhead rails that clothes get moved around to and from the various areas. 

She said I'd like this one.

:hmmm9uh:

I eventually found the pallets.

Here’s my current stable plus a couple of pairs of Gazelles are always on the go.
