I ef'd up a bit last night. I was lulled into a conversation with Mrs. smfdoc about specialized Christmas attire for parties. With Ipad in hand I showed her the jingle bell moc from the AE website. First comment was, "Aw those are cute."

Second response a nano-second later was, "$400!? You don't spend that much on shoes, do you?" :hide:

That reminds me, I have to cancel that damn catalog delivery to the house.
No because nine hundo is not four hundo. So, no.

The answer is "no, I get them on discount, when they go on sale........" Of course, if she is like my wife, she just rolls her eyes, and knows I DO spend that much on shoes....

You broke the first rule of Shoe Club. This is what happens.

Honestly, I bet none of us has ever paid literally $400 exactly. It pays to be a good listener.

Mrs darkclassic can rival Ashley in the dark arts of the weasel. And Mrs DC has a few pair of Louboutins herself that I didn't exactly discourage her from obtaining, so way too much enabling goes on here. WAY TOO MUCH.

Edit: Just realized that I did actually buy a pair in my collection for $400 exactly. DAMN.

You're right! Pre-tax, closest is $399. Post tax, $401.98.
That... That's less than 1% sales tax. Brb, moving to Texas!

Well once my keyboard pops up the entire visible window that's left is consumed by an ad that can't be closed or minimized so hopefully this posts properly. Thanks Fok!!

Lmao, not my wife yet, but I have discussed how much my shoes cost to my girlfriend before. The first time she found out, she thought I was kidding. She knew I liked to dress nice, so she was fully aware of some of the clothes I buy, but shoes she never really noticed.

When she realized I wasn’t kidding, she had no idea what to think, other than why? Mind you, she’s into fast fashion, so she thinks I’ll wear these shoes out in a year or two. After explaining to her why they’re so expensive, she does understand why, but because I haven’t gotten a resole yet, she hasn’t seen why they’re a good investment yet.

I think I’m the only one amongst my friends who’s into shoes like I am. I’m willing to bet I’m one of the youngest participants in this discussion too. 😂
