Hi guys, I know this forum isn't the obvious choice for this question, but I want to get my gf a pair of shoes that have the qualities I'd expect from my own shoes--durability and timelessness. I know what the big names are in women's footwear (manolos and whatever one has the red soles, and whatever else), but my question is: is there something inherent in women's shoes (the fact that they're supposed to appear delicate rather than solid, for example) that makes it impossible to find one that still looks like a woman's shoe but will perform like a man's? Is there an EG/G+G/Lobb of women's shoes? Or are all the top brands dedicated to form rather than function? I know you see saddle shoes and the like in women's sizes from Grenson and Carmina, but I'm skeptical of the quality. Thanks!
