I arrived to the office today to discover that I was wearing a different shoe on each foot.

On the left, the Alden Long Vamp loafer in dark brown calf.
On the right, the Alden Leisure Handsewn in Color 8 shell.

In my defense, I doubt anyone would even notice as they are the exact same shoe, just with slightly different vamp heights and of different materials.

Can we call this sprezzatura?

I think I just sprezzed myself.

Clearly you both wake up too early in the morning. Get more sleep.

I don't like it one bit. Nothing sprezzatura about two different shoes. It is not like you put on one dark navy oxford and one black oxford of the same brand shoe at 4am.

This is why keeping your shoes in their respective boxes is of utmost importance.

If anyone notices, point out that you have an identical pair at home.

But they're not identical... they're a mirror image.
