Everyday wear and tear... - Page 2

post #16 of 27

In giving this dilmemna some thought, I think I may have another solution.  OP, what about buying some Ace bandages and completely covering the entirety of your shoes?  You would prevent scuffing and keep your soles looking brand new.  Perhaps you could buy different colors to match your suits.  I'm thinking something like this:

I just like beatiful shoes and I have a hard time wearing them so they sit in the closet. I have a 1968 dodge charger sitting in my garage and I like looking at it instead of driving it.

 

Jay leno is the same way he tons of cars, but never drives them at all........I do the same with nice looking shoes.

I like nice shoes too, and what I hate is to see them brand new... every scuff, stain, crease and polish layer gives them a little more personality.

well, this is just my opinion, but thats a stupid way of thinking.

your car is made to drive, not sit in a garage. Shoes are meant to be worn.

Bringing Jay leno, and his extremely high end cars into this is wrong for 2 reasons. 1) Allen Edmonds are not the McLaren F1 of the shoe world...but rather say the E-class mercedes. 2) Jay does drive all or most of his cars on a regular basis...he is not the type to just look at them.

hahhaa...uhhh no I have visited Jays garage before and he told me he does not drive them...sorry I heard it from the horses mouth..urggh chin I mean.

 

So in that aspect yes I can treat my shoes anyway I want to treat them. I like my mccalisters and will treat them as McClarens as you put it.

 

As for my 68 charger I can do what I want with it let it sit there in my 4 car garage or drive it my choice not yours.

I've found that will a little effort I can wear my AEs covered by the bags that they come in and cut down on scuffing considerably.

I agree. I have a pair of pretty brand new looking clarks desert boots in beeswax that I have had few a few weeks now. I knew in the back of my head they would get scuffed up eventually. After a night out and trying to keep them from being ruined, I am a few steps from my place and a I get a nice big scratch on the one from a piece of metal sticking out of the ground. I was pretty pissed at first but now the "scar" is kinda looking alright now, definitely adds some character to the shoes . Of course they weren't terribly expensive so I don't mind so much and I guess desert boots are meant to get roughed up.
