Wearing wingtips make me feel like a real grown up. That's an odd thing for someone who is almost forty. However - if you've seen my posts on Glee, and my gadgets and other seemingly juvenile topics, you will understand that I don't really feel all grown up.
I don't have a lot of shoes - compared to my women friends. However - for a guy - I do have a lot. I've trimmed it down significantly and I have handed down some pairs to my family and friends. So now - I'm down to basics. Two pairs of black leather shoes. Three pairs of sneakers. Two pairs of loafers. One pair of brown leather shoes. I've been thinking of buying burgundy shoes - but I am not sure if that's too eighties or nineties. I've also been thinking about buying a pair of Doc Martens - since I've been seeing a lot of them lately and I loved my old pair.
Out of all of these shoes - my favorite pair is my brown wingtip shoes. I have a friend who used to say that seeing a man wearing wingtips make him look sexy. I'm not really sure I agree with her. If a man looks like a troll - I can't think of any footwear that can make him look sexy.
This is the pair that I have. I need to buy new shoe laces. I think Midori nibbled on them. But I should stop blaming her for it because - worn out laces had always been my problem even when I didn't have a dog.
As I said --- wearing these shoes make me feel like a grown up. So - I must ask myself - should I balance it out by finally getting those Doc Martens - to make me feel like a College student when I want to throw out all the cares that I have out the window?
