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


Hmph too bad I'm traveling. Best ill be able to do, my stingrays last night:



You'll have to imagine Tonik suit, white zendaline single cuff shirt, midnight satin tie.
X-post from the challenge


I'll start this.

What a theme; I predict glorious trainwrecks! Can't wait!


(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.

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

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.
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.

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.
