Just can't get myself to wear (soil/tarnish) the new Darltons..

post #1 of 71

I've had them for a few weeks, and can't get myself to scuff up the virgin soles. Maybe I need to go to a carpeted event to ease the transition? Or maybe I will just put up a new shelf and display them, and buy a 2nd pair to actually wear.

I had the same problem, but it was because I couldn't figure out if I liked them and if I wanted to return them. The loafers I used right away because I bought them for air travel. The wingtips I was not sure about. I finally tried them on this Friday with jeans and decided that I liked them so I popped their virginity. I had a similar issue around Christmas when I purchased 4 pairs of EG at once and they all looked so pretty and their was snow and salt outside. In the end, they are all just shoes and are meant to be worn and look better when broken in. Just do it!

Try having sex with them on. The secret is not to keep staring at your shoes instead of at the woman, but with a little practice you can learn how to sneek a peak when she is distracted. Position mirrors around the bed room which you can discretly look at while in the act, several so she thinks you are just looking about. Ask her if she thinks that being blindfolded would be exciting for her. Point out that viagra costs about $15/shot, but that wearing the shoes seems to do the trick, plus you can justify buying additional pairs. Point out to her that you'd like more variety in your sex life, and go out and purchase a few different styles, she deserves it. Put them on your feet only after climbing into bed, and remove them if for any reason you need to leave the bed. You can get years of enjoyment out of a pair and they will still have that new look about them.

If you had purchased a new car, would you refuse to take it out of your garage, for fear that actually driving it might rob it of its pristine perfection? Probably not, and a new car would cost you way more than your new shoes.

Shoes are meant to be worn. If you can't bring yourself to wear them, they're no longer shoes; they're merely ornaments. You know, like a pair of ceramic unicorn figurines a teenaged girl might display on a shelf.

So, what were you shopping for when you bought them - shelfware or footwear?

Return them. You can't afford them. There's no shame in that.

Actually, a sign of discretionary excess is buying something and not even bothering to use it.

Don't ever look at the bottom of a pair of G&Gs. You'll have a nervous breakdown...

A lot of folks get that vibran rubber coating. Why not do that?

Yup, these are totally unwearable. Where do I get a pair?
