Well, I finally got around to going through my footwear collection and got rid of, actually bagged and ready for GoodWill, a lot of my old shoes and boots that have accumulated over the last 10-15 years. What a bunch of junk. Boy did I spent a fair amount of money on "trendy", "in-fashion" footwear that appears to have been worn only a few times. If I'd saved-up the same money and applied it to a few pair of quality shoes, I'd be ahead of the game. Oh-well, if hind-sight were fore-sight we'd all be millionaires. Gone are the Stacey-Adams loafers, lace-ups and boots in gaudy similated ostrich leathers, designer athletic shoes, PayLess Shoe Source look-a-like Steve Madden "bowling" shoes and a whole variety of athletic shoes in various colors and patterns. Geez, I must have been nuts to but some of this stuff......or......I may have listened to my wife, the ultimate shopper, when she may have urged me to buy them. What a relief. My closet is now ready for new shoes/footwear. I'm down to the following: Sperry khaki colored Bilfish boat shoes, Sperry Authentic Orginal Top-Siders in dark brown with the white soles, one pair each Birkenstock sandals and clogs (for wearing around the house), an old pair of generic white court shoes (no name on them that I can find; maybe Tretorn), duck shoes for the rainy season and one pair of tassel loafers from Stacy Adams which will go when I get a new pair of dress/casual shoes for business or social occasions. My upcoming purchases will be: a good quality lace-up dress/casual shoe for business use; probably Allen-Edmonds or Alden if I can find them on sale. A comfy classic penny loafer. And a new pair of court shoes; maybe Addidas. On the subject of court shoes/sneakers, did anyone see the PF Flyers in the Vermont Country Store catalogue? I used to wear these as a kid. My wife thinks they're ugly but I kinda like them. What do you think? https://www.vermontcountrystore.com...DUCT&iMainCat=54&iSubCat=257&iProductID=30664 Thanks for letting me share. Thom.
