This is honestly the first post you've made that I can respect.
Without any sense of elitism, I applaud you for coming to that realization. Being from Hong Kong myself, I was surrounded by people like yourself always looking for the latest and greatest, most visible manner to display "success". Whether that be constantly new LV/Hermes/Chanel/Gucci handbag for the ladies*, the latest and greatest cell phone every other month, or shoes like the one you posted and the desire to walk around the mall showing off your orange Hermes bag...
Hopefully one day you'll come to the realization that this is not the only way to show wealth, taste and "classiness". (Again, without saying that yours is the wrong way, or the majority of members here are expressing the "right way") - surely your income can buy you some very nice Edward Greens or John Lobbs in the area of shoes.
Just to reiterate, I understand the cultural difference at play here and why both your choices of purchases and even your blog can be considered gauche.
*To prove this point, take a look at the website of a highly successful second-hand handbag store
in Hong Kong. Women would literally purchase a handbag from there, use it for a month, bring it back and exchange it for a new model. It can then appear they are extremely well off and are fashion leaders, with a new designer handbag every week...
