OK, so today I’m seriously eyeing a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes. Do I need them? No. Can I afford them? No. But will they look incredible on my feet? Absolutely! These shoes are so great, they are just screaming, “BUY ME!!!!” I mean they are so beautiful; they make you want to slap your mama!
You could say that I am a male version of Carrie Bradshaw. I too have an expense shoe habit. It’s so bad, my friends used to call me Imelda Marcos. But my mother always said, “Never wear cheap shoes. You’ll ruin your feet.” My dad says, “Never wear the same shoes on consecutive days. They need time to breathe.” Well naturally I always listen to my parents well at least in terms of footwear. So it makes sense that I have taken what they have said to heart.
Pravda, Gucci, Farrago, Bruno Mali, Cole Hahn, all reside quite comfortable in my closet. I seem to have wonderful success in finding shoes that fit, great styles and I am pretty good at taking care of them. Regular polishing, shoes trees and keeping them in their boxes until wearing are some of my secrets to keeping shoes looking their best. I firmly believe many people judge you by your shoes.
OK, so you want to see what’s on my latest wish list?
I love eLuxury.com! They carry some great labels for men and not just shoes: 7 For All Mankind, James Pearse, and Marc by Marc Jacobs just to name a few. They’ve recently starting carry Dior Homme which let me to my next fashion find:
Beautiful shoes, aren’t they? I just can’t justify buying them when I have 5 or 6 pairs in great condition and I’ve just bought 2 other new fabulous pairs of shoes. I originally was looking for a good pair of sandals, having lost a pair at the end of last summer. See? A legitimate reason to make a shoe purchase …. Replacement shopping! So for now, I just have to admire from afar….well at least for now!
