    I'm sick of sandles, I want to wear something with a little more refinement. Any ideas? Pics?

    You are obviously implying that it isn't classy whatsoever. As compared to sandles yes, as to anything more formal, no. I take it as a very hot weather, middle of day attire. Yes, as compared to the US passion for open toe sandles I do feel this is a step up.

    Agree. The ones with the rubber nubs, not the other ones.

    What if one does not like loafers (especially mocs) and does not wear Converse?
