MY SHOES- #15

Originally priced at $60.00, I bought these shoes at Ross for $15.99. These shoes are not me. I feel like a traitor to myself wearing them. I can't exactly put my finger on why I feel that way. They're made by Perry Ellis which is definitely kind of sassy, and there is something vaguely feminine about their design, which made me question if they had been placed in the men's section accidentally. Yet I kind of like them. Sarah says, "they look good," and when it comes to style I trust her judgment more than my own. These may be the strangest shoes to ever make it into my lineup. I'm not sure yet what their niche will be on the team. They did get the start today over the Ducks and the overworked Champlain Boat Shoes, but I anticipate that the Boat Shoes will continue to carry the bulk of the workload going into the future. I don't know...what do you think?



I am enjoying being reunited with velcro footwear. Why hasn't velcro entirely replaced shoe laces? It's superior, isn't it?

I think another trip or two to the wall of shoes at Ross and your shoe lineup will be complete! Another good find! Trust your wife. She won't steer you wrong, afterall, she has to be seen with you in those shoes!

When I first saw them I thought, "They don't look like shoes Josh would wear."
hmm, maybe they'd grow on me if I actually saw you wearing them
LOL

I love these shoes. Sometimes it's good to try something new!

Obadiah is sitting on my lap and as soon as he saw the first picture of your new shoes he stated very clearly, "Uncle John!" I agree, they look like something John would wear. Very interesting . . .

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
