If a Boy Could Only Own One
If someone told me tomorrow that I had to sell all my shoes, my heart would be broken. Shoes are one of my passions, and I can prove this statement by admiting that I own at least 50 + pair of fine adornment of the feet. I simply love shoes....Belgians, Edward Green, Polo, etc. However, if I could only own one pair, I would chose my Alden 986 Cordovan Shell Penny Loafers and I would encourage others to choose the same. First, the shoes will last a lifetime, and they only grow more attractive with age. Second, WASPy style starts with penny loafers (one grows to appreciate tassels), and Weejuns (though dear) just will not last forever. Finally, the Aldens can be worn with shorts and a polo, a tweed sport coat and chinos, or even a suit (though frowned upon by some). Yes, this is my choice, but I am glad to not have to make it!
