    I saw Kelly perform this live at a Margaret Cho concert last year - I laughed so hard my torso was sore. OMG...hilarious. They were selling 'Betch' shirts at the concert too.

    I own two pairs of shoes: Mephisto Nautica and Doc Marten unisex five eye with padded collar. I much prefer the Mephistos for comfort and looks...heck and durability! I like the Doc Martens because they keep my feet a little warmer.

    I wear my shoes hard- I don't sit down at work and walk easily five miles a day working. Both of them are holding up wonderfully.

    I think they are *way* overcharging for shoes and handbags made in China and consumers who pay it need to have their heads examined.

    I've been wearing ballet flats all my life, it has nothing to do with age. Some clothes don't look good with heels and they would be ridiculously impractical in some environments or activities. I also don't walk around the house in them. I guess it depends on where you live and what kind of house you live in, as well. I used to when I lived in New York, had those feathered mules, reek reek.

    I wish I could find those old Capezio t-strap flats, anyone remember those? I'd love a pair of saddle shoes, too, and some blue suede tie shoes. I should be looking at sales today, rather than shooting off my mouth on here, what kind of shopper example am I setting? rofl!!

    I just bought some $10 black, velcro, grandma walking shoes. I think/hope they're weird enough to look "obscure", or at least eccentric, or at least fresh. I got them for a self-defense class I'm taking soon. Heels or boots in the gym would likely be ridiculous.

    I bought a couple of pimp-ass pairs or Stacey Adams--a black pair and a brown pair. For the evening prowl or mall walk.

    I'm usually in the hiker mode with my Merrell Shoes or North Face boots.

    My Doc Martins are beat up---I'm moving on to some black Keen boots.

    At work--Operating Room. No Crocs or Dansko's--a lot of people do where those at work. Just some comfy New Balance.

    I like the Teva and Merrill hiking sandals in the summer

    Still have one pair of Chanel loafers in my closet. But I pretty much live in LL Bean slip on mocs, weatherproof ones. In summer Clarks sandals.

    I agree, the Tramezzas are very nice.

    I have bad feet and thus wear Nike a lot a lot almost always.

    I got some great Christial Leboutin shoes recently though, silver, they appear to be rhinestone studded and have white heels. they are actually made of some matrix of little mirrored bits of some material woven together. the surprising thing about them is they are quite comfortable, which came as a completel shock to me.

    I don't currently have a pair of caterpiller boots but when I did I wore them constantly, dark brown almost black ones they went with anything and so masculino.

    nope. you're not crazy. sorry.


    i have almost 40 pairs of shoes (prior to selling scuba gear i worked in nine west and easy spirit). most of what i aquired there were of the high heeled, sexy, and fashionable variety.
    however,

    what did i wear when not trying to part snobbish middle class women from their husband's hard earned amex cards?

    flip flops.

    and i still wear flip flops. any color. brown and mint green reefs, pink and brown reefs, white and grey reefs (seeing a pattern here?). if i had my choice, i'd go barefoot, but dirty feet digust me, so flip flops are as close as it gets to nothing at all! thank god i live in an area where sandles are an accepted part of life and approriate for most any situation. i love south florida!

    For sneakers I only buy Oakleys. One pair every year or two years for the past 7 years.

    For shoes I only wear Bostonia Prescott loafers. I got 7 boxed pairs of them stocked in the closet.

    I discovered a website with deep discounts on brand name shoes, I'm telling everybody. I don't know if it's new, I got linked through the zappos.com clearance section. It's called 6PM.com. Shoes are too expensive lately, so I look for deals. Going shopping there, I need some things. (not affiliated)

    Since I'm a hip-hop kinda dude. I rock the following:

    Puma Munich in white, brown, and cream
    Adidas Superstar Low in black with gold trim (I love shell toed Adidas, it's the inner b-boy in me)
    Nike Air Jordan III Black Cat edition
    Nike Air Jordan XIV in white, black, and varsity red

    Then I play hoops in my Air Penny IVs in black, silver, and white. The straps and the ankle supports are fantastic so I don't snap my foot in half trying to pull off some dumb spin move on my friends!

    I'm going to avoid buying more sneakers before I end up joining ISS or Hype Beast forums and get super crazy, cologne's expensive enough. I have some clunky black Sketchers that I use for "dress"? I need a real pair of dress shoes for work. Anyone recommend a pair that's reasonably priced that I can wear at anytime and it doesn't feel like I got bricks on my feet? I was looking at the Kenneth Cole Reaction zip up dress boots and some Steve Maddens.

    I am a huge fan of Steve Madden. Great priced quality shoes. I own a couple pairs of Clarks that I bought from the local Clarks shop and have been very pleased with them. My running shoes are Nike Free 5.0 though.

    Another Grenson fan here, though I'm usually not so conservative as to like that many otherwise great english brands. Chocolate suede boots, and cap-toe black calfskin bals so far.

    A few boring but perfectly nice Allen Edmonds for rainy days at work. Lots of A.Testoni's and Bruno Magli's - a few nice (but disappointing fit) Lorenzo Banfi's.

    My Barker Black loafers with crossbones (instead of horsebits) are a must-have best for any grown up punk rock dude, and I am trying to figure out how to justify some Edward Green Psychobunnies, which are ever so cool, but still cost more than an occassionally-worn pair should.

    Gucci's don't usually impress, but I do like my Wimbledon brown/navy pennies.

    For running - Mizunos.

    And John Varvatos jack purcells with multi-eyelets and elastic cord laces are pretty cool as well as comfortable.

    I'm a straight non-metrosexual guy, but shoes have got to be one of my weaknesses. I love Bertie (a not so popular company, only seen at Selfridges) they're very reasonable (i.e. &#163;90-150) and do amazing loafers that switch from day to evening to formal to dressy casual. They're absolutely fantastic. I recently got casual wise some LV sneakers in converse style with green laces and in Damier canvas.

    But, then, designer shoes make me happy. Unfortunatley, I have pretty big feet (UK 10.5/11) so many styles are hard to find in Birmingham (and I end up buying other things when in London with money) currently, i'm digging a pair of these patent-ish kangaroo leather LV loafers with side strips, but they're out of stock ALL over Europe. I guess a lot of other people liked them too

    Next on my to buy list is a dark bronze calf leather Gucci moccasin, but the London Gucci boutique don't have it in And as I can't go to the store, they're not keen on ordering it in for me from anywhere else. Grumble.

    My dream shoes would be some John Lobb's a small bespoke London shoemaker owned by Hermes (Hermes shoes are to die for as well, but I find the styles a bit to grown up) and on BG they have an amazing chapel buckle loafer, which I would kill to get, I doubt i'd wear it much though

    My next purchase will be the loafers, and perhaps some cheaper casual shoes, I don't care much for sneakers or really casual shoes, but i've got a favourite little off-shoot brand called H by Hudson and they do some amazing shoes, along with Kurt Geiger in England.
