I think Balenciaga and I picture a highly paid tech worker perusing through the Balenciaga section of Nordstrom in her black Steve Madden heels on her lunch break. She's 31 years old and recently married, but she still wants to be perceived as young and hip...
This hurts :(
36 and I'm old and uncool.

Random fashion thought: saw a dudebro at the liquor store wearing those horrible fur-lined Gucci clogs in this weather, it's been over +25C all week ;D

Please add details, I never figured out who wears these monstrosities aside from a friend who wavers between curator dandy for Parisian museums and Jewish guy from Detroit into rap and skateboarding (i.e. he is both of those things but still, he obviously has identity issues).

I see a lot of these around the bay area worn by both women and men. Used to see them in the office too (tech....).

Thirty-something guy, beard, trucker cap, aviator glasses, slightly saggy jeans, polo shirt, and a few tattoos. Apparently a domesticated one since he had a kid with him in one of those carrying things.

Does anyone wear chestnut / tan shoes anymore?

I’m cleaning out my closet and these are all on the chopping block. I find I barely reach for them anymore.

I can’t tell if it’s because I’m being influenced by current trends that favor not-so-light shades, or if lighter colors like these were never optimal and I’m just now realizing it.

Or maybe they are still cool and I just need to find better ways to wear them?

Also, semi-related, wondering if these John Lobb Lopez loafers are too dressy for casual wear. Debating selling them and just getting some black Weejuns, which somehow feel more at home in a non-CM fit? Could be wrong!

I also feel like I rarely see brown loafers in casual fits, and mainly black?

Thanks for listening to my random shoe thoughts.

I really like the Thuyas I have in the same color as beaters that look better with wear and with any denim or I suppose chino. I like the Viberge and have some Virgils in the same color I wear regularly with denim, etc.
Those last white ones, I don’t know what’s going on there.

I think the nude Chelsea boots are still a good choice with black denim. The loafers don't look very "dressy" imo
