    :nest: she's slowly coming around. Fortunately, she's not the complete over-fashioned, under-styled woman that most are. That said, I can understand many people's resistance to green shoes, yet one must go for it. We've learned that style is all about a flow concept. I showed her a pair of red paraboot derbies, to which she replied "buy the green ones." Ah the beauty of making something more attractive by showing something comparatively less attractive.

    I work in the world of design and presenting concepts is my stock in trade. I'll thank you kindly to not reveal my closely held 'trade secrets' to the entire world.

    Well, working in the financial industry precludes wearing such shoes for work, and a limited budget preludes buying (and wearing) such shoes anywhere else! Lol!

    They are, at least, interesting. I have my own opinions, but am interested to hear (read) yours.
