    Yes, because she spent the previous night at my place.

    did you have to tanya harding her to get her home?

    i used to have to walk tons in dress shoes, but the poor shoes soaked up nearly all of that.

    you could go the civil servant route and get eccos :hide:

    Keeping with the "let's try to make the SF community throw up" theme, I was tempted to show some pics of my colostomy bag (just kidding).

    Instead, I'll show some pics of a HUGE disappointment I just had.

    Cole Haan Werner.

    I had read that these were a reproduction of a 1920's style Cole Haan had. However, the style is almost certainly late 30's or 1940's. What a FABULOUS Spade Sole design, In fact, the soles on these rival ANY I've ever seen. Talk about "Lickable"!

    The finishing on the uppers is also done extremely nicely. In short, I love just about everything about these... EXCEPT...

    That FREAKING TERRIBLE CORRECTED GRAIN LEATHER!!!!

    I can't believe they used this garbage. It looks like the stuff I saw on a pair of AE Concords (I think that's the model). Look at those creases, and these aren't even really worn. Try-on creasing like that??? Unexcusable!

    Anyway...

    Basically unless you can find a shoe that has a high instep you need bespoke.
