Now you're logging shoe tack

Posted by Joe Trainor on May 07, 2007

In Beaufort, South Carolina, I picked up and started using the phrase "now you're logging shoe tack". It was told to me that a shoe tack was a common reference to a cobbler at some point and that logging was actually the stitching of the sole to the shoe. Any idea about its origin or location of its origin? We use it to make reference to someone who has caught on to a task and is getting it accomplished in a timely and understood manner.
