Man Shoes

November 12, 2009

They can't all be winners.

It’s quite late and I put off writing this until the last minute, so bear with the sloppy writing.

These are my man shoes. Josef Seibel Tanya, to be exact.* Years ago I was really into cheap shoes – Wal-Mart was my friend. However, my feet really hurt at the end of the day, so I bit the bullet and bought some decent shoes.

I liked them so much, I bought the company!

Well, not really, but I do have two pair of brown, two pair of black and one pair of tan. They fit like a dream right out of the box, and look nice enough for school, even if the squared-off toe is a little masculine.

Hey, maybe I’m a little masculine!

Wanna arm wrestle?

Or spit?

Or….er… watch sports?

Ok, maybe I’m not.

Anyway, I’m definitely a slob. The shoes come off right where I sit and can remain there for days.

* Zoinks! I just bought those shoes. I couldn’t pass up the deal! Make that 3 pairs of black.

    Haha! I like that the page you linked to says: (For Women).

    I sometimes have to look at the pictures of the models on the wall in clothing stores so I know which side of the store to shop on.

    Yeah, Be Kind to Your Feet Day!

    I always kick my shoes off under the dining room table. My husband will say, “People are coming over, can you put the shoe store away.” And I say, “What kind of people?” Because that determines if I put the shoes away…or just push them farther under the table.

    BTW: Do you order these shoes on-line or is there a store near you? I need some comfy shoes.

    I especially like those red, sparkly shoes on the ledge.

    There are some Mary Janes out there that are tough and comfortable. My personal favorite brand is Footprints. It’s a private label of Birkenstock, so it has the cork footbed in a nice, hefty, comfortable shoe.

    I’m a big fan of Born shoes. My feet haven’t found a pair they didn’t like… 🙂
