    I'm begging to know the mystery as to why it takes Stitch almost a week or two to wear the new shoes.

    I got shoes months old that haven't been worn. Pretty standard here

    They probably can't bear to "sully" those beautiful shoes, not until they've spent a few months ogling them while in pristine condition ;)

    I have learned to wait too. I take my sweet time breaking new shoes in now, making sure I can see how the light creasing is developing & assess fit comfort, all while indoors. To each his own I guess...

    I buy my shoes to fill a gap needed in my rotation, for which there are many. Not to stare at. I guess that's the difference.

    And agreed. The second day I get them, they're on my feet. Maybe at least carpet until I decide I like them. But the polo suede was a non returnable MTO. Wear them!

    thanks, guys! much appreciated.


    well, mostly because i am lazy and OCD.

    first i bring them home, and then a day or two later i try them on to make sure i am satisfied with the fit before walking on anything but carpet. then i put them back in the closet, and usually do a second try on for fun at some point. then i wait to see how i want to use them for the maiden voyage. then i wait for the day when then is 0% chance for rain (especially with closed channel shoes, getting them wet before walking on hard pavement can easily cause the flap to peel, as i learned the hard way). and then when i am good and ready, i wear teh new shoes!!!


    thats a long time even for me. its usually a week or to max for me.

    Well there it is. I am no longer curious.

    However, I was curious what your camera setup was. I see you have a light box. I just got a new camera, arriving tonight, and was wondering how far to go to build a setup. Whatever happens, I'm really happy to be away from my girlfriends pink point and shoot with broken auto focus.
