I have a pair of Kalso Earth shoes. I’ve worn holes through the soles so I can only wear them on dry days. I like them just fine, but I want to try another brand of brown oxfords. Just to add variety to my life.
But I’m having great difficulty. I can’t find any shoes that are both practical and visually appealing (to me). I also want them to last. I have a pair of black Rockports that will take forever for me to wear down and that I really love, but alas, I can’t find any brown shoes like this in the women’s department.
So I think I’m going to go with these. I like the way they look. I trust the brand. The price is steep, but if they last a couple of years under the conditions I will be putting them under, it will be well worth it.
I’ve bought men’s shoes before and I don’t think anyone noticed. And even if they did, it wouldn’t bother me. I wear “guy” stuff when it suits me. Why would I stop at my feet?
But I am curious if I’m unusual in crossing the line like this. How often do you buy shoes intended for the other gender? I know I could make this into a poll, but I don’t feel like it.
