Upgrading my footwear

It may be a questionable move for a man trying to pay down a sizable credit card debt, but damn it, I "needed" to buy some new shoes!  At the very least, I needed to replace my workaday black oxfords, which are so worn out that they give me terrible aches and pains when I wear them for a day.  I bought my last pair of these stupid Dockers less than a year ago, and they're already worn to shreds.  Never again, damn it; I need some footwear with better longevity than that.  I decided to minimize my trips to the shoe store, so I resolved to buy a new pair of brown shoes, too, since the brown Dockers are only a hair's breadth away from the wrack and ruin of their ebony brethren.

And so it was that, partly because I needed some shoes and partly to comfort myself with some retail therapy after finding that my kitchen sink is inoperative and may need to have the entire faucet replaced, I bought some nifty new shoes.

Behold!  My new black Sandro Moscolonis, and my new brown Borns.  The hotness, am I right?


  1. DH recommends wearing each pair every other day for maximum life.

  2. Love them both--though it should be noted that your spending spree remains a fraction of what I'm capable of dropping with an ill-advised visit to various online shoe outlets. Don't be too hard on yourself.

  3. Hawt, indeed. Those Borns will last forever if you take good care of them. And nicoleandmaggie is right: Alternate footwear for best results.

    Now strut on with your bad self!

  4. I approve. Also you sound like Manolo the shoe blogger with that ending comment.

    1. Oh Sisyphus, you are being the silly. It is obviously the Manolo who sounds like the Koshary.
