With a few exceptions, I only included entrants with a full or mostly full fit pic to go with their shoe pic. Since I was doing Tira's bitch work, I figured I'd be a dick about it devil.gif

What a theme; I predict glorious trainwrecks! Can't wait! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

(for myself, I have three potential, and very different, high speed locomotive crashes in mind...)

I have no crazy shoes. Almost bought a pair of blue suede tassel loafers today, but changed my mind. Don't know if that would have qualified.

Get some blue suede Belgians. You won't regret it. The ones at ASW are great, but especially in Spain if you look around you should be able to find something comparable for less.

If those don't count, this thread will be even more terrifying than I previously imagined. biggrin.gif

I'd suggest anything that's not black, brown, or oxblood calf or cordovan, and any suede that's not brown or black, should count. Also no white bucks.

I was about to write shoes that don't count and I see unbel's post... I approve

That's kind of what I was thinking, though of course Tril should have final say as the challenge-setter. But this approach would neatly fold all exotics into the challenge, even in otherwise conservative colours/styles, which should broaden the range of entries nicely.

 

EDIT - glad you approve of unbel's framework!

Sad to have to sit this one out (no crazy shoes), but looking forward to seeing what people come up with.
post #15 of 179

Actually, I think I would have bought the loafers if I could have tried them on. But I was sockless. Felt that was a bit unhygienic. But I really liked them - looked very casual European.

Who knows, just maybe...

 

If I don't get them, I could always wear a pinstripe suit with my hiking boots.
