Shoesday

Today I scored a pair of Opening Ceremony M8 classic saddle shoes in the most radiant silver gray suede.

As I was test-walking them around the house, they shone like old velvet!
With the situation being that I’m moving to the US for grad school, it’s not like I have the room in my suitcases for another pair of shoes. But Miguel offered them up at such a handsome price (thanks Miguel!), I had to throw caution to the wind.

I love the minimalist brogue detailing.
I’m not one to pass up a good deal on nice lace-ups. They to me are what sneakers are to most guys. I wear lace-ups with everything; they’re my comfort shoes.
They are, in fact, a size too big for me, but I got them anyway. Nothing a pair of Scholl insoles can’t fix!

    exactly, you can always buy the soles of your size, and problem fixed! This grey is just right, not too dull, not too light, very crisp and clean. I'm a grey mood lately as well.

    the US awaits…

    Those are some pretty cool shoes! I've been on the look out for some like those at thrift stores, but no luck. What school will you be attending in the U.S.?!

    Hey Izzy, glad you like them. Just posted your outfit on El Bosquejo (http://bit.ly/hiWJl) and La Folie Douce (http://bit.ly/lWh21).

    Didn't know they could still be called saddle shoes even in monochrome, and not derbies.

    Still thinking if I'll be attending that reunion…

    It's hard to say no to shoes! It's always nice to have a lot of shoes and welcoming the idea of more shoes…

    What program will you be taking for your postgraduate?

    Yep, those shoes are rad!

    Where are you going to grad school and what for? Masters or Ph.D.? I'm kind of obsessed with grad school already and I haven't even finished my undergrad.

    Me too me too me toooooo – lace-ups=sneakers. I have a brown leather pair and a sand suede pair. When good ones are found, they must be bought.
    Grey suede, that has to be the best adjectival pairing of all time! I love everything about grey suede. Your shoes are gorgeous!!!
