Description
A humble shoemaker manages the near impossible. When Death comes to call in his black cloak, Colin the shoemaker does not go quietly. With some quick thinking and sweet-talking, Colin distracts Death by offering to make him some shoes. Death, completely befuddled, is fitted for sandals and soon after that for a pair of boots. Each time Death comes to claim Colin's soul, he leaves with a sole, but never the kind he intended.
