Thanks SugarButch. I do have a thick skin. Each to their own. I wouldn't normally wear them with a suit but I was trying to step it up a bit from a more pedestrian pair! Wrong move hey!!!!
I realise people will be critical, and that's ok. I do respect that we all have a right to our opinions. When CousinDonut initially said I was disqualified I thought I'd gotten something completely wrong with the "no ventilated shoes" rule. I realise now that the slightest of square toes will meet with opposition. Tongue firmly planted in cheek with my comebacks!
My style is classic on the conservative side, but I'm trying to add some flair in the shoe department rather than wearing black all the time. They're the squarest toes I have and I usually wear them with denim and a sports coat.
Thanks for weighing in on the whole ermmaagerd square toes debate
