I have a question for you masters out there. The only pair of nice shoes I have(read: not rockport, banana republic) are a pair of AE bel airs. They are 11s, but I could probably fit 10.5s in them.

I'd like to buy some other, nicer, shoes on ebay, but not having been to their stores and not being able to try them on locally leaves me with a challenge.

Right now the some ferragamo loafers are #1 on the hit list. Biggest difficulty for me is also foot width.

Any ideas for me before I start bidding?

If you cant try on the exact model beforehand at a store then at the very least try on some Ferragamo to get your approximate size. Sizes and width tend to vary a great deal, in my experience at least, so buying blind is always a big gamble.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
