    For my personal taste, that Grenson heel is within the realm of something I would wear because it's pretty slim as-is. But I think that heels are better suited on boots and not on low-cut shoes like those, especially if they're 'sporty' or for 'summer-wear'.

    I also feel that heels can sometimes interfere with my gait, I dunno. I tend to be heel-heavy when I step so maybe that's why.

    Furthermore, I think no heel is a bit more masculine and lends itself to a sleeker and cleaner profile/silhouette.


    mens dress shoes always have heels though...

    I guess I'm opposite of you on the gait thing, I find wearing shoes with a slight heel much more comfortable. I think the Grensons above are nice, even without the red soles. As for no heel being more masculine, I don't think that's necessarily true. Having some heel on a nice pair of shoes can make them really elegant, but not in a feminine way. I wish I had a better word to describe it.

    Not to say that a heel is feminine, but in my opinion, I think less heel looks better for guys.

    Then again, I'm a tall guy so I don't see the benefit in the added height like some might.

    You could do better, twylo. Unless you have some Nixon brand loyalty thing going on, go for a non-branded wallet (at least on the outside)

    No brand loyalty, I just like that they are thin and money clips along with the fold... any ideas? I'm getting a new pair of Flathead's and my old wallet (complete stainless steel) rips through the pocket like a knife through butter. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I could care less if ID windows are tacky. I take mass transit almost every day. ID windows are so much easier.
