That is so strange, you would expect that kind of advancement now, not some staff member pressing the tops of your shoes to find your toes

its dangerous to have too many x rays, and you can bet the machines weren't shielded correctly, so the shop assistants were probably being irradiated on a daily basis

There was also a thing in Clarks that you put your foot in, like a box, and from all 4 sides meta came out till it hit your foot and it measured your width and size. I used to like that.

The x-ray showed they fitted in the right places and did not put pressure on bones and cause damage.
