year shoe shortage as uniform department fails to give out new ones

The Delhi Police are facing a crisis of a peculiar sort.

More than 83,000 policemen in Delhi, including the lower constabulary, sub inspectors and inspectors, are forced to wear shoddy shoes to work as they have not been given uniform shoes from the department for the last three years.

According to the norms, all policemen from the rank of constables to inspectors including the station house officers are entitled to a new pair of shoes every two years. But the department hasn’t provided them with new adidas running shoes for the last three years. This is forcing the cops to buy a new pair of shoes on their own or manage with the worn out ones.

The issue began three years ago when the government directed the central police forces, including the Delhi Police, to buy shoes from Small and Medium Scale Industries and the shoes that were supplied to Delhi Police did not pass the quality test. The ministry had passed this instruction in order to promote the industries.

The lower constabulary, who do most of the leg work, are the worst affected by the situation. A constable with the Delhi Police said on condition of anonymity: “Every time I have filed an application for a new pair of shoes, it gets rejected. My shoes have worn out and it is difficult to work wearing them especially in summers. It is not possible to run or walk for a long distance. If the department does not sanction one this time, I will have to buy them on my own.”

After getting low quality product from the SMEs, the Delhi Police wrote a letter to the ministry of small and medium enterprises, requesting them to exempt the force from buying shoes from SMEs. However, the ministry has not taken any decision and the matter is still stuck in their files.

According to sources in the police force, the ministry, rather than working on supplying shoes to the force, has started analysing why the adidas shoes philippines could not pass quality test.

Another police officer said: “Till three years ago, the Delhi Police used to float tenders for buying shoes and procured good quality shoes. The shoes that we give to our staff usually last for up to two years. However, after the ministry of small and medium enterprises directed all the central police forces to buy shoes from SMEs we now have to depend upon them.”

Around four to five SMEs supplied shoes to the Delhi Police thrice but the shoes could not pass the quality test. We got them tested at the Indian Leather Research Institute and Indian Institute of Technology and the quality was found to be very low, the officer added.

According to the uniform norms of the Delhi Police, the lower sub ordinates constables, adidas stan smith head constables and assistant sub inspectors are supposed to wear black leather shoes and adidas philippines facebook the higher sub ordinates sub inspectors and inspectors should wear brown Oxford shoes.

Buying A Floor or Wall Mirror

Full length mirrors: The full story, top to bottom

Full length mirrors are truly wondrous things. The ancients didn’t have them; the best they had was polished metal that they could barely see their faces in unless the lighting was just right. Even centuries later, the best thing they had was a hand held mirror, until the advent of the full length mirror. This phenomenal idea was just a simple transition from bust height mirrors, but the impact it had on life as we know it completely changed the face of bedrooms and bathrooms the world over. Now people could look at their adidas shoes philippines and their hair. While this may not seem groundbreaking in any traditional sense, what it did for the human self image can never be put into words.

Full length mirrors aren’t all peas of a single pod. There are at least 3 distinct types, each carrying their own bag of goodies for the human eye. Hanging mirrors are probably the most popular today, adidas running shoes and are almost standard fixtures in any home. There are also leaning mirrors that provide a different feel. And finally, there are standing mirrors versatile versions of full length mirrors. With the different types available, it might be a little hard to choose the right one. Here’s a run down on all three types, and their variations, to help you decide what looks like you.

Hang ’em low, pardner!

Hanging full length mirrors are easily available in any mirror shop. But for the frame, they’re only a rectangle of silvered glass with eyelets that allow them be attached to a wall, giving you a head to toe view of yourself. However, not many people can imagine not having one at home, and might wonder what they did before these were invented. The versatility of these mirrors allows them to be used in a variety of ways as dressing room mirrors, as bathroom mirrors, as home gym mirrors and even in the foyer for guests to check their hair and clothes when they come in after braving the elements. With that many uses, it wouldn’t be surprising if they were the best sellers of the mirror world. You can find frameless, full length hanging mirrors that cost a fraction of their framed bretheren. Depending on the material, you might spend anywhere from two to ten times as much for a framed mirror. The advantages of framless, full length hanging mirrors extends to the possibility of hanging them on any type of wall whether it be concrete or gypsum. Frames will often double or triple the weight of the mirror, limiting the number of places it can safely be hung.

Lean and clean

Leaning full length mirrors are even cleaner by design no eyelets required. All you need is a wall to lean them on, and you’re all set to go. Being even more versatile than hanging mirrors, they can be moved around to accommodate any redecorating plans you might have from time to time. As an added bonus, you don’t have to punch any holes in your wall to “install” a leaning mirror. That’s something that hanging mirrors can’t really compete with. There’s an even better aspect to leaning mirrors angling. With the right kind of lean, you can achieve some amazing space enhancement effects, just as you can with this next category of mirrors the standing kind.

Don’t just stand there do something!

Standing mirrors are a class of their own portable, adjustable and adorable: all the things you could want in a full length mirror, and more. The very design speaks volumes about the usage possibilities. Typically mounted on a floor bracket that allows them to be swiveled and locked at the desired angle, these stylish creations are coveted by top interior designers as stylish additions to private quarters. While they are the most expensive of the three varieties (for you can’t have a frameless standing mirror), they also have the most wow factor.

Bits and pieces of mirror

Full length mirrors have the advantage of being able to create space from nothing well, from proportionate amounts of space actually, but visually doubling the available space is an equally stunning feat. The angling feature of leaning and standing mirrors can even seem to increase the height of the room. The right placement can make all the difference between a den and Eden; letting the light and the greenery in is an inherent part of good interior design. Besides accomplishing the near impossible, these mirrors also enhance the stylishness of a room beveled edges, ornate frames and other features add immense value to a plain mirror in a subtle or bold way, whichever you prefer. With all these things going for them, can anyone honestly deny that full length mirrors are truly wondrous things?

I Want Some of That! Where Can I Get Some?

Full length mirrors are rather ubiquitus items, and can be found in most department stores and supermarkets. Sears, Target, WalMart, and Ikea will almost certainly have a number on display. Weighing only 10 pounds, this wall mirror can be hung on concrete, wood, and gypsum wall materials and you can choose the appropriate set of fasteners (screws, plugs or mooring screws) when you make your purchase. This is an extremely affordable mirror, made so by it’s lack of frame, which is usually the most expensive part.

No matter where you choose to do your shopping, adidas philippines store you can expect to save the most by buying a cheap framless mirror. Frames are significantly more expensive, as are stands so if you are looking for a free standing full length mirror, expect the price to rise accordingly. On NexTag, a freestanding mirror with similar dimensions to the Ikea mirror costs $115, to give you some idea of the drastic difference in price.

The Best Investments In Footwear Retail And Manufacturing

stock exchanges. For each company, we have provided price targets, buy/sell/hold ratings, buy/sell ranges and theses. Additionally, using a multitude of financial analytical ratios and comparisons, we have given each company a score on growth, profitability, financial health, value and management indices to compare each company and see where the companies excel and where they have weaknesses. The company has excellent financial health, good value, and looks like they are set for good growth in the coming years.

Over the next five years, we see operating income improving at least 50% with margins staying strong and that decent growth is not being respected by current valuations. The P/E ratio is sitting at 12 right now with future PE under 10, which sits below the 15 threshold that we use to find value. Price/book is also below 3, which is another threshold we use to determine value.

The question for many, though, is the staying power for Crocs going to last. The company is in a current strong growth cycle during tough economic times, which is definitely a positive sign. They have become very popular with youth, aquatics, and we see them as less of a fashion item compared to convenience item. Further, they patented their composite they use for their shoes that creates a decent economic moat

Additionally, the company has moved beyond their clogs as well. The company is seeing solid results for their toes, other sandals, and golf shoes. Clogs are only 50% of the mix now for the company, and while that saturation is high, we do see a better diversification of their portfolio now.

Deckers Outdoor, Hold, PT at $40

We believe that Deckers Outdoor has some definite flaws that create very limited upside long term potential couple with strong downside risk that make us want to avoid the stock. The issue for DECK is that Uggs were over 80% of sales in 2011 for the company, and their other lines have not been able to come to popularity like Uggs to properly diversify their portfolio.

The company is similar to Crocs in 2008. They saw amazing early demand, saturated the market, and now they either need to diversify and find a consistent niche or they will go by the wayside like so many other “fads.”

The company does have potential with their Sanuks line as well as the diversification of the Ugg line itself to other areas other than female boots. Yet, those lines have not grown enough to justify an investment yet. With that lack of diversification, the company is very prone to margin swings due to input costs for Uggs.

Further, unlike Crocs that have patented composite technology, Deckers offers very little economic moat. They had brand name during their fad, but as that dries, they offer little to no moat in a crowded winter boot/shoe market.

Positives for the company are they have no debt and strong cash flow. They also have a high short float already. So, if they do see some stronger than expected data points, they can put on a solid short squeeze. Buy on further dips on value, as the growth story is questionable right now.

Finish Line was our top scorer in EquityAnalytics, and we believe the company is a great pickup right now. The stock has a great combination of growth, value, and profitability. They have tons of upside potential, and we believe they are the best current investment in this space.

First off, the company outperforms Foot Locker in margins, and they have already stated that they believe they will have $200M in operating income by 2016 as well as $2B in revenue.

How is the company going to turn on even more growth in the next five years?

The company is introducing amazing digital capabilities that we believe will create great margin growth in 2014 and beyond while seeing some pullback in margins in the next year. These capabilities include having tablets in each store that will allow better streamlining of inventory and customer data.

Some stores also will have interactive surface tables that will collect customer data and allow a more customer direct approach. These directives were modeled off of the Apple store image, and we believe they will be very beneficial in footwear retail.

The company is a great value right now after a recent pullback, adidas superstar and we believe Finish Line is going to continue a great growth story over the next several years.

While we believe FINL is one step above Foot Locker, this company is definitely another great place to invest. We see them as just slightly outside our buy target, but they are very close to that level. We would like to see them come down just a bit more to get involved.

What we like about FL is that they have good growth with a good yield and decent value. They have a 2.4% yield, which is good for the industry. Further, adidas philippines sale 2015 they are creating more value with a current $400M stock buyback program. They are attracting growth, value, and income investors to them right now.

The company, additionally, looks solid in international markets, and they are expanding into Israel and Asia currently. The company has been seeing good revenue growth in the past several quarters while decreasing inventory, adidas supercolor which is a very healthy and positive sign for a retail company.

One area of concern for us is that they do have a strong European portion of their business. They have commented that things are fine there, but if that situation becomes direr, it would negatively impact FL. Further, their profitability lags competitors and needs to be improved.

Readers share their traveling shoe styles

Last week I showed you my traveling shoes and asked you to show me yours. Today I can tell you that The Chronicle’s traveling readers are passionate about what they wear on their feet. From those of you who insist you’ve found the perfect pair of shoes to those of you who can’t pick just three, you’re all persuasive.

You love your Keens, but other brands popped up more than once. And after reading the responses, I’m thinking it’s a good time to shop for the one that could replace three (but of course not the golf shoes). See what you think

Walking home from dinner on a crisp, clear night, crossing the Pont Neuf, I went down. My foot landed under me and my friend said, “Wow, that was better than the circus this afternoon!” Ouch! By the time I got home I could barely get the clog off my foot. I finally went to the doctor and 12 weeks later I could wear those damn clogs again.

When I turned 50, a couple of girlfriends and adidas philippines branches I hightailed it over to Paris. I bought a new pair of no frills, black, plumpy, rubber soled walking shoes so I could go from dawn to dusk, up and down Le Metro, cobblestone to marble, never slowing down for arthritis or bloated feet. Considering the trip was a last minute whim, everything worked out splendidly.

Just got back from Kyoto (lots of outdoor temples and adidas basketball shoes walking). Since I didn’t want to look like an American tourist, I did not pack my sneakers. Big mistake. By the end of day one I was in agony. I am in a constant quest for a good looking walking shoe.

Three and counting

The shoe quandary strikes me as I pack for each and every trip. And I believe I have chosen poorly just about every time! I have hiked muddy trails in Manuel Antonio Park in Rockport dress shoes because I believed packing three pairs of shoes was ridiculous, so I brought only sandals for the beach and nicer adidas basketball shoes for fine dining.

Thinking sandals were the wise move for Dubrovnik, I have skidded across limestone walkways as if I were learning how to skate. And I have ruined next day hikes by heading to the beach in my tennis shoes only to get them wet.

I even made a stand on a side trip in Vietnam in which I refused to bring shoes altogether. Three days later, I was wishing for dry feet and had never looked forward to socks so much. I guess until they invent a decent hiking boot/dress shoe/running shoe hybrid, I’ll be lugging three pairs around.

On my first trip to Spain in 1989, I brought only a pair of Top Siders. My feet blistered walking around Madrid. The shoes, designed for wet boat decks, were disastrous on nightclub dance floors. Now I can’t go anywhere without casual dress loafers, brown dress shoes, golf shoes and a pair of Keens, which can function as both sandals and sneakers.

For golf trips to Ireland and Scotland: Bring two pairs of golf shoes, with one set in carry on luggage. I learned this the hard way. My baggage did not arrive with me on two special golf trips to Portugal and to Bandon Dunes. And on more than one occasion, I have been the only person with dry shoes on the way out to the golf course after the previous day had been rainy and wet.

Two and then some

I travel with a friend each fall; We fly somewhere, rent a car and explore. We take a pair of hiking boots and bring sandals. I have often brought a third pair a lightweight, flat soled sneaker style. They smash easily in the suitcase and provide a welcome feeling strolling around town. I have a pair of New Balance, but I’ve also worn a Diesel pair or Eccos. It can really give your feet a nice break.

The fewest shoe choices I’ve ever gotten by with packing: a pair of Merrells for walking and casual restaurants and a pair of neutral Chacos for same. The most: dress boots or pumps for meetings and rainy evenings, dressy sandals for banquets, Merrells and sandals for fitness and casual events, and specialized hiking boots. I wore my New Balance 749 Country Walkers and packed Josef Seibel mary janes. The NB walkers were excellent for traipsing among ruins and the were outstanding for city walks.

I recently did five weeks of travel in Turkey and Berlin with one carry on (two pairs of shoes) and am a fanatic about traveling light.

I never take a pair of shoes I can’t walk all day in. I take two pairs. For summer/fall: Keen sandals and black sandals that look good with a skirt and can be considered “evening wear.” Winter/spring: high top lace up boot like shoes and black flats, same as above.

My one and only

I travel with just a pair of boots. They are midcalf Via Spigas, low heeled and great for walking in cities, up hills and over cobblestones. I bought the boots in 1993. They’ve been resoled twice. These boots look great with everything. When rain is predicted, I’ll pack an extra pair of walking shoes, usually black leather oxfords with rubber soles. And I leave the boots at home during beach weather and when I’m not packing anything more formal than jeans.

I wore nothing but Keen sandals for 14 days in Paris. I wasn’t going to swankerino restaurants where heels were required. They worked great for the what seemed like 10 15 miles a day of urban hiking we did and adidas supercolor no one in a cafe or bistro ever looked at my feet.

My wife, Lise, bought me a pair of Merrell Chameleons 3 years ago before we married. Being avid hikers and campers, we wear ours a lot. We spent six weeks in Italy for our honeymoon in May 2007 with our backpacks and only our Merrells. No pizza place in Italy cares what kind of shoes you have on.

Last January, my Merrells made a six week trek through Thailand (flip flops also stuffed into the backpack).

Perhaps the last hurrah for my beloved 3 year old Merrells was a 10 day trip to Jasper Park in Alberta last May. Their days are winding down. I looked for a replacement pair, but styles have changed. But Christmas morning brought a surprise. My wife had located an exact replacement for my beloved shoes at the Merrell outlet store in Vacaville. The last pair they had just happened to be size 11 1/2.

A pair to remember

During my early wanderings, I happened across two huge shoes on the median of a traffic circle in Cartagena. Cast of bronze, the sculpture memorialized a poet’s love of his old, comfortable and well worn pair of shoes. A few years later, I had such a pair. I referred to them as the “round the world shoes.” They were a dirt green suede, canvas and hard rubber, simple lace ups with no flashy swooshes or colors. They had enough heft for climbing Kilimanjaro yet could hide themselves under slacks for an ambassador’s dinner on Mauritius.

The soles would not mark up boat decks or cut golf greens, and were even passable pushing bike pedals or protecting a paddler’s toes. The liners popped out for quick drying and made a fine spot to hide a passport copy and a couple of hundred dollar bills a “get out of jail” stash.

Meryl Davis and Charlie White to compete on

Stanley Holden Dance Center

It’s near the end of his class and Stanley Holden calls out, “Bye, sweetheart,” to the girl retrieving her bag from the corner and now heading for the door. The same little scene repeats itself several more times as the ballet master, an imp of a ruddy cheeked man, dispenses cheery and adidas supercolor nonchalant farewells to others making their exits. Without ever dropping a beat and while demonstrating the combination at hand, he offers an explanation: “You see, I’ve just given them the bag step. It’s my name for the hard one that makes everyone run for their bag.”

This is pure Holden goodwill, wit, humor, and an inner delight in dancing, all fused with a slightly laissezfaire tone. Its essence permeates the atmosphere where the former Royal Ballet character dancer turned teacher holds forth day after day a feat he’s been pulling off at his West Los Angeles studio on Pico Boulevard for the past twenty five years. At this particular noon class, the professional one, there are thirty five people of various ages who clearly come from diverse disciplines there’s the former Graham principal, Bonnie Oda Homsey; an ex Ballet Theatre demi soloist who’s married to Danilo Radojevic; several others from the Joffrey (on hiatus); and a few local performance artists intent on strengthening dance skills. Not everyone is strictly professional, but Holden, who has just celebrated his sixty seventh birthday, bars the door only to anorexics. “If they look dangerously thin,” he explains, “I ask for a doctor’s note. Otherwise the people who, for one reason or another, are not up to the class simply drop off. I don’t hold auditions, although there was a time when I could be more selective.” One woman at the rear, who approaches everything the way a gymnast might, can do all the steps and remember the combinations, but shows no dancerly quality at all. “She’s been coming for years but never worked professionally,” Holden says.

As he describes the range of attendees, including celebrities passing through town, a note of pride comes into his voice. After all, the Stanley Holden Dance Center is local headquarters for touring dance companies. “And when Baryshnikov came last time we swelled to eighty six. That was more than I could handle but they wanted to pack in.”

In a way those are the glory moments, because Los Angeles currently suffers a dearth of opportunities for dancers. “There’s no work here for anybody these days. That’s why people leave,” Holden explains. And now, with touring down and most troupes bypassing Los Angeles proper for Orange County, which is an hour plus drive down the freeway, the traffic at his studio has thinned considerably.

But that seems not to dim his brio. Taking just a moment to formulate the next combination, he launches into the phrase his arms held endearingly aloft in Fifth Position, his upper back leaning into the arc, his head cradled within it. The class follows. No one, however, quite gets the feeling. No one defines it as an act of love except Holden. If the thrust of dancing lies in its communicative or adidas philippines emotive value, only one person here seems acquainted with the idea.

Next comes an infectious comic galop from the pianist, and the ballet master quickly sets it in steps that suggest saucy fun. Again the class follows. But no one wears a smile. “They won’t listen to what the music tells them,” he says. “Whenever I encourage them to imagine they’re dancing for an audience, they say, “We’re concentrating on our technique.'” Far be it from Holden to impose himself. “Lermontov is gone,” he says, referring to the Old World commandant style impresario in The Red adidas shoes philippines. “The days of the stick are over, and besides, no one wanted me to be like that. I feel I know what dancers need and what they want. It’s possible to get just as much through kindness as harshness, even if you don’t see it coming back at you right away.”

Born to a poor family in London’s East End, Holden yearned to be a tap dancer in the mode of Fred Astaire. At nine he began lessons that cost a shilling a week, and several years later, to advance his skills as a tapper even further, ballet study was recommended. He put on the despised tights, took the dreaded classes, and lo and behold, a new direction beckoned. (Royal Academy of Dancing) examination and within weeks became a member of the Sadler’s Wells (later the Royal) Ballet. Some have felt that, in an earlier time, none of this would have transpired, that he would have headed for the music halls. As it turned out, there was a niche made to order for this outsized personality: character dance. At his peak, Holden stood out as ballet’s only true comic in the Chaplin tradition.

According to London critic Janet Sinclair, “He has the gift of all great comedians: one always laughs with him and never at him. This characteristically gentle humor can have us fall about laughing at his Dr. Coppelius and Widow Simone, but he is in no way diminished by our laughter. Just as with Chaplin, we know quite well that he could at any moment turn our laughter into tears.”

Yet Holden does not regard comedy as his only asset. “I loved having the rare chance to do the serious, profound roles,” he says, seated in his adidas philippines office address now and naming Pierrot in John Cranko’s Harlequin in April as one such role. He mentions the old saw about the clown longing to play Hamlet and that no clown ever felt consoled by the reminder there there are ten good Hamlets for every master clown. It’s only with great prodding that he allows for “some moments of disgruntlement” at being typecast by the Royal Ballet.

Mostly, Holden waxes positive about the rewarding career he had there. “It was the level of creativity that I found so inspiring,” he says, citing the many choreographers and their impact on the dancers. “But often a role would not come together until the actual performance. Building the character layer by layer could happen only when all the basic things were in place knowing the steps and really hearing the music in order to get the timing this is where the punch lines come from.”

Because the Royal was so small in those post World War II days he reports only thirty dancers everyone had ample opportunity. Holden remembers “doing a lot of hard dancing and dragging my butt home at the end of the day. All of us did quadruple duty, performing in four different ballets, with four different makeups, all on a given night.”

When he left the company, after twenty five years, his farewell appearances brought down the house, Covent Garden erupting in cries of “Hear! Hear!” and “Good old Stan” with the encomiums seeming never to stop. Holden was beloved, it is said, in the way reserved for great stars of the music hall.

Giving it all up did not mean ending his career, however, only turning to another one. Word of Holden’s imminent retirement spread to Los Angeles, and an emissary of its newly built Music Center, seeking to interest him in heading the ballet division and from it developing a company, was dispatched to London. The answer was yes; he sped to Southern California, fell in love with its informality and sunshine and, to boot, that emissary who became his second wife. But one political thing and another kept the ballet academy from materializing after a year of false starts. That didn’t stop Stanley and Judy Holden from converting a rented bowling alley into a dance studio that today sees 250 to 300 students passing through its doors on a daily basis.

The staff includes principal teacher Margaret Hills, who was assistant to Ninette de Valois at the royal Ballet until Holden lured her to Los Angeles, and, as of January, Radojevic, whose back injuries forced his retirement from American Ballet Theatre. The teaching style that predominates is English, of course, but other influences are there as well, and seventy percent of the classes have piano accompaniment. Only ballet is taught “because the other stuff hip hop, show dance, and so forth creates too much noise and racket.” Generally, Holden pays his teachers “a certain amount per head” plus a minimum, and still rents the well appointed property for $8,000 monthly.

While he has no desire to direct a company, his generous support of Los Angeles Chamber Ballet is a matter of record: rehearsals are conducted at his studio gratis and, until recently, whenever a character role in a major production needed to be filled with this local troupe, the Joffrey, or others he was only a phone call away. Fifteen years ago the irrepressible Holden underwent open heart surgery and came back to full function. But last year a bout with pneumonia led to endocarditis, in turn involving his knee. “It blew up like a basketball,” he says, a painful situation that required eight weeks on a penicillin drip.

Even now he walks with a slight limp at the end of the day. But one hesitates to ask if he thinks of taking time off or slowing down, because pride and purpose are so manifest in his presence. Not needing a question to prod him, Holden jumps ahead to say, “My value is as a teacher not a director adidas philippines office address acting as their agent and knowing I can bring them to the next level, a company spot. The secret is it lets me stay a dancer. Anything better seems unimaginable.”
