I'm in Dublin, Irl Gerry where the selection of good shoes is thin on the ground even at retail prices never mind the sales. A trip to London once a year after Christmas is usually the best I can do.

Can I ask, do any of you wear your C&J shoes to the office or do you save them for special occasions?
I rotate mine with some Church's for work but a small part of me thinks they are too nice/expensive to wear for work.
What are your views?

I wear my C&J, Lobb and Carmina shoes to work every day. I make sure they're well maintained - brushed/waxed when necessary but I LOVE wearing them to work. I sure as hell don't get a chance to wear them on the weekend. They're well made shoes that are meant to be worn.

 

Use them and enjoy!

I mean, the shoes have to be appropriate for their use, no? A pair of patent leather shoes have a very specific use.

No that's a good place for them - you'll be getting promoted in no time. Maybe even outside your organization . . .

good shoes make it a special occasion, even if you're just going out to get milk

So you go barefoot in bad weather? biggrin.gif

I've found shell cordovan to be excellent in inclement weather. A quick brushing at the office and the shoes/boots are shiny again. A co-worker couldn't figure out how I kept my boots looking so clean in winter. I told him that I kept a shoe brush at work, but he figured it was because I drove in that day. (But my boots are shiny every day, even when I take mass transit.)
