God this thread is exciting


#2

Don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone use a shoe horn irl


#3

Just don’t ever wear smart shoes isn’t it


#4

I have but it was someone who’s a jerk


#5

Weddings are tricky


#6

Shoes linked to an app that tells you your laces are undone and when they need reheeling.


#7

Never get invited to weddings because a) I have no pals and b) I am a scruffbag

(This isn’t really true but I am going to a wedding soon where I can wear PRACTICAL FOOTWEAR YESSSS)

I bought a really nice pair of DMs to wear to the last wedding I went to. Foolishly didn’t break them in, and completely mashed my Achilles heel because of it on the day. I really should try and break them in so that next time I’ve got call to wear them they don’t cause me pain. According to the internet there’s a trick where you take a hairdryer to the back of the shoe and then wear the shoes when the backs have softened up, so that they mould to the shape of your foot.

I like a brown shoe with a black trouser. Always have, always will. Anyone who’s got an issue with this can swivel.


#11

I have some DM chelseas that I can usually get away with unless I’m wearing slim-fit trousers


#12

The sliding thing’s just deceptive. It seems easier and quicker but it’s just not.


#13

One day out of five you can do it but most of the time you’re just sort of stood like an idiot wiggling to no effect


#14

Had to think about what you meant for a while

That said, it’s hard finding a good robust but comfy brown shoe that’s both businessmanlike and soft-soled but doesn’t give off a late nineties Dr Karl Kennedy vibe or make you look like a work experience lad at his first job.


#17

Feel free to show me pictures of smart shoes you’re wearing

I don’t have a foot fetish (of that kind)


#18

Only wear smart shoes to weddings and funerals. And sometimes to look snazzy, which isn’t often.


#19

You should snazz more m3

I considered snazzing it today, got some new boots, they’ve got a heel! Awoooo. But I feared new shoe potential pain so vanned it.
