I've worn the same brown shoes to work five or more days a week for well over a year. I love them dearly, but recently it has come to the point where I need to retire them a few days a week. I think they are still In great shape and go with everything, right, however partnered with my poor posture and sole tread I decided to begin the search for new shoes. It has been a long 6 weeks of searching... Seriously. Philip almost refuses to go shoe shopping with me anymore because, as he puts it, I am a bit particular. In my mind, if you're gonna drop $100 or more on shoes, they better be comfortable, look hot, and last a long time. Our joint search started at a shoe store in Andersonville where I tried almost every brown dress loafer style in stock, and one oxford that I did not even ask for. I felt so guilty after having someone help me for so long that I just bought the pair that I hated the least. I work in retail and I know how it feels to help someone who walks out empty handed. The very next day, less than 24 hrs later, I returned the heavy clunky unattractive shoes. After several trips later to DSW, which btw is somehow overwhelming and under exciting , other local shoe stores and even a few in Kokomo, Indiana, I am still shoeless today. Cut to a few hours ago and Piperlime.com, which I have always had a secret love for, but never used. After virtually searching all the mens shoes in size 13 and brown, I narrowed it down to this pair below.
Now I will wait around a week or so and hope that they fit well and are comfortable... I don't think I have the patience or energy to start all over again.
