    Did you buy the shoes to match the phone or vice versa?

    Are they on the U last/bespoke?

    Yes, the first axiom of buying shoes is to coordinate to my telephone.

    What is the etiquette for wearing spectator shoes? Are they worn only during summer months? How about with suits?

    I have a pair of these which I got on sale earlier this year. They saw significant action at a resort in Mexico last week and will likely be broken out with the linen trousers for a planned trip out for dinner and dancing on Friday night.

    Very, very nice. I usually don't like spectators, but those are great.

    What size are those shoes? US 9.5D? I was thinking that the shoe tree heel might be slightly too wide given the gap at the top of the shoes' heels and the shoe tree heels?

    Those are beautiful Church's. Is that model still available or is that an older model?

    Thanks, knittie. I got them on sale in Hongkong last year. I really am not familiar with their collection to know if that model is still available.

    You know, there's something about those Churchs' specs that almost makes it look like the shoes have spats.
