new pair of shell cordovan saddles on ebay for $499. Not my listing and generally not a style that I would ever wear but I'd think these are right for someone here.
I don't ask my wife if she likes my footwear or not, I just get what I like and roll with it. Conversely she doesn't ask me what I think of hers. This scenario works well for us. I like to think of this way.....as a woman she is not an expert on men's footwear and similarly being a man, I'm no expert on women's footwear.
