Spoo,

If ever there was a shoe that had Spoo written all over it - that Oakham in croc must surely be it. devil.gif

They did such a great job on laying out the hides. Pure art.

Yes - group sex is much better in groups of 3 or 5 or 7. Even numbers just breaks down to couples too soon.

i want a pair of deco shoes (the rogers, if anyone wants to do some hanukkah shopping for me) soooooo bad, i dont care how bad it may look on me.

Thanks for the feedback on their maiden voyage. Glad to hear that they seem to look good on my feet. As I was telling Despos yesterday, part of the reason I went with the deco was because I have short narrow feet. The little bit of extension makes them look just a touch longer, and the striking taper of the toe makes the ball of my foot look wider in comparison. Those were my reasons. I'm sticking to them.

The one thing that I noticed which concerned me, and hopefully ya'll can help, was that it appeared there is a very thin piece of leather over the fore of the shoe, and when inspecting them last night, I noticed a small gap at the toe between it and the rest of the sole.

When I first saw the deco IRL I thought them to much less severe than in photos. Especially when looking at them next to the TG73. I think phtography and angles plays it up a bit. Plus the soles make them seem much narrower than they are.

Do you mean the channeling that is opening up a bit? I have found this to be kind of normal in channelled shoes.

lol, funny you mention it. i was just clearing space last night on the upper shelves of my closet for my shoes because my wife started encroaching in my shoe floor space.

get this, she didnt want the kids to trip on these shoes, SO SHE PUT HER SHOES DIRECTLY ON TOP OF MINE!! WTF!?!?! so enough was enough, problem is i never throw shit away. so i had to push aside all kinds of shit in my closet, cd cases, a collectors super bowl edition football, some hats and a belt, a bunch of old khakis...... (btw i love my closet with its full size french doors) and put some shoes and boxes on the shelf above the hanging items. it was a pain, but totally worth it.

i wish i was loaded like my great uncle. he has not a walk in closet, but a closet room. an entire huge room in his monster house that is a closet. beautiful floor to ceiling wooden closets. they line all the walls going around the room and in the middle 3 rows of them too. there is also a desk, jewelry case and small mirror area in the room, and a huge bathroom with a giant tub and full wall mirrors right off the closet room. i guess to bathe and dress without walking from the closet room to the bedroom. its insane.

I didn't know Vox was your uncle? confused.gif

It sounds like my mom's room honestly. Only it is filled with INC brand from Macy's and religious texts.
