Abandoned as a child and raised by cyclists, I spend my time in the Dirty South, though London is my home.

    what was the total cost on those? And do the lenses darken and lighten dependent on the lighting conditions?

    Had to replace some bolle vortex, and delayed purchasing the prescription inserts for the two pairs I'd got off ebay for small beer, as I wasn't doing much riding during lockdown.

    Went to my opticians a couple of weeks back (who are bolle stockists) to finally sort them and was told that bolle had discontinued the models that used prescription inserts, and discontinued the inserts themselves to move customers onto the hellishly expensive new style prescription lenses.

    So long story short, looking for replacement options in case I manage to lose/break/destroy the two pairs I've currently got..

    Friend has posted this up on LinkedIn,
    Thought I’d post here..

    Hello sneaker freakers, casuals, fashionistas…

    We are researching sneakers and how you wear them. This is part of a DORK experiment looking at sneakers and landfill. Over 20+ billion pairs of shoes are made each year with 300 million going to landfill. Sneakers make up a large part of this problem and contribute to the environmental cost. If you can spare a couple minutes we would love you to fill out the survey. We respect your privacy, so it is totally anonymous and will only be used to inform our thinking and where we take it next. Thanks for helping, please share with your community.

    DORK.

    I’m going to wait until next christmas and see how it goes price wise with the ps5. Will probably get one, but ps4 still has plenty of games I could be getting on with, and my playing time is limited so unlikely to be able to block out whole days/nights to crunch through something.

    Am torn between digital only and disc version though. Digital does limit the savings you can get on games unless you buy nothing until days of play comes round, and it still feels like you never really get as good a discount as when you physically source something second hand..

    forgot to say, disc version holds out the hope that you can pop a ps4 game into ps5 and not feel like you have to buy it again/subscribe to ps plus to play it.

    saw the police and police cordon round there.
    I'm assuming they closed the nursery.

    We looked at sending jnr there, but found a nursery closer to home, which we liked more.
