I get the economics--I just don't get why you would do it to such beautiful shoes. Let us not quibble. To each his own. Thank you for starting the thread and for your posts. I admire your dedication to the black cap.
Wurger, great stuff. Great thread. Love the write up on Carmina. As a guy from Chicago, where the weather can be poor for many months on end, I cannot understand the topy. That said, your shoes are lovely and I do enjoy your emphasis on what I believe is the top shoe and the most appropriate as well.
