Shoe fashions changing all the time - just like all other fashions. But here in Beijing some old timers prefer to wear the old style black cloth shoes, that were worn decades ago. The old shoes are like a talisman, reminding people of the more leisurely lifestyle of old Beijing. And the store selling the shoes is an established time honoured brand. The shop is called Nei Lian Sheng. It's a busy place just like it was in decades past, a reminder that tradition holds an enduring attraction.
