Inmate Arnold Darby speaks during interview in holding area at Goree Unit prison in Huntsville
Inmate Arnold Darby speaks during an interview in a holding area at the Goree Unit prison in Huntsville, Texas December 5, 2013. Darby was once one of the most prodigious bootmakers in the Texas prison system, turning out more than 1,000 pairs for lawman, FBI agents and the governor's office. After 37 years behind bars, serving time for robbery and murder, Darby was released on parole in 2011. After only a year on the outside, Darby violated parole by driving while intoxicated and was sent back to prison. This time, however, he has not been in the new unit long enough to earn what is considered a privileged position in a workshop, and the once-vaunted jailhouse cobbler is not sure if he will ever make boots again.

Shoemaker Antonio Arellano works on a red shoe he made for Pope Benedict XVI in his shop in downtown Rome February 14, 2013. Far from the designer stores on the other side of the Tiber, Arellano's shop, with its smell of glue and racks of shoe polish, is unremarkable, except for the fact that, due to its location, he counts Benedict as a loyal customer. With Benedict set to retire to an apartment inside the Vatican City, Arellano hopes he will remain his customer, even if the pope no longer visits in person.

Shoemaker Antonio Arellano works in his shop in downtown Rome February 14, 2013. For a cobbler, there are worse customers than a pope: all that praying wears out the leather so they keep coming back for repairs.
So says Arellano, working in his tiny shop in the shadow of the Vatican City walls where customers coming to get their shoes re-soled enjoy the fact that they employ the pope's cobbler. REUTERS/Tony Gentile (ITALY - Tags: RELIGION SOCIETY)
