^^ thank you!
As far as how I select my shoes, I generally don't wear loafers in the winter or boots in the summer. I also try to rotate through my shoes so that I wear each one 1-2x per month. Beyond that, I look at what I have in the way of meetings that day, what level of formality they will require, and what the weather will be. The boots are new, but I plan to wear my lindricks with flannels and woolen slacks (not suits) and Gianni's with denim, cords and flannels.
