    Leather soles can be slippery at first, but after you scuff the leather soles up a bit, they gain traction. After wearing leather soled shoes to work for years, you get used to wearing them in most conditions. In really bad weather, switch to a shoe with a commando sole or do something like wear Bean boots on the way to the office

    I hate when offices don't have carpets on the floor. Walked in for an interview once on a rainy day and slipped [​IMG]

    Made myself look like a dumbass to the receptionist

    Just a small plug for Robert Amore:

    I received my #8 LWBs from Amore Clothing last week. $570 shipped, got the tip here. They look great, I cannot find a single flaw. This is the second LWB for me and I believe the Barrie last may be the most comfortable shoe for me.

    Moulded Shoe has a natural CXL Indy boot. It's on the Modified last. I'm not sure they have any widths other than D, though.

    luckily the receptionist has zero impact on whether or not you get hired. Impress the decision makers.

    I'm sorry if you misunderstood, the marble inside of Grand Central wasn't wet. My shoes were wet from the rain outside of the station.

    Now with the vibram sole protector, the shoes slip no more.

    Gorgeous combination.





    You might want to rethink that theory. I know first hand of employers who will ask reception folks about the behavior of potential employees who were waiting in the lobby before interviews.

    these are great looking. I only own 1 alden LWB, #8 on antique edge (2nd being duckie brown x florsheim navy cordovan), but this is making a strong argument for whiskey.
