good shoes

I got some emails from random people asking for clearer pics of the Gucci. I just used a mobile phone camera when I took those initial images, so they did not show the details of the shoes much. I used a real digital camera this time. I'm no fashion photographer (heck, I'm not even a fashionista). Just doing my best here. I hope these look clearer:






I love these shoes because the color changes depending on the light. It can look brown, gold, red - it goes with everything. For the price I paid for them, they better go with everything.

The good thing about expensive shoes is that they're truly well-made. I don't own many of them, but I own a few and I must say, they're been worth the $$$$ so far. Just look at these trusty Prada driving shoes which I use regularly. They're still in great condition:




A college kid who interviewed me a year ago asked, "What's your advice for fresh grads who want to be successful?" I said, "Decide on what kind of success you want to achieve, and don't let anything get in the way." I should have said, "Never scrimp on shoes. A good pair can take you places."

the pictures don't give your shoes any justice. good thing i saw them in the flesh (tanned and preserved leather, that is)

had fun at the randy ortiz show. we should do that more often because it's therapeutic Ü
