In my ongoing quest for the perfect shoe, I bought these on eBay, and while they fit perfectly, I have decided that the slick chisel toe is not for me.

These shoes the sechs. Truth. Which goes with absolutely nothing in my wardrobe. Maybe you love the chisel toe, and the way light plays off its sharp edges. Perhaps you dig the single leather sole , and the way it surreptitiously lies beneath the masculine angularity of that oh-so-French elongated last.

Let's face it: you need a shoe that doesn't make your foot look like a blob. These shoes are the anti-blob: hugging your toes until juuuuuust the very right moment when the quasi-wholecut leather shoots up to envelope your instep in perfect pitch.

Seriously, these shoes are slippers. I'm putting them on here before the 'bay.

And now, the deets (copied from the eBay seller):

Shoe designer Michel Perry has been the creative head of the rather English-sounding French label J.M. Weston since 2001. Perry has had a colourful history spanning two decades in the industry. His creations for J.M. are now de rigueur for rich and powerful men. The son of a prominent shoemaker, Perry is known in his native France as the "king of heels".

Blah blah blah. Buy these already, they're a steal.
