You take your kids swimming and are happy that you have to wear Blue shoe covers around the pool saving you 30 minutes of wear time on your soles

Is there a support group for this shit? Sad

Same. Bought two pairs of Trickers and a pair of Church's that I hardly need.

Weak attempt to justify by fact not bought any clothes in sales this year and overall footwear collection has reduced this year.

But still…

You buy something again that you have already owned and sold.

When you buy fancy badges that cost more than your whole outfit.

New YSL is terrible ain't it. Few bits I liked in the first drop but you can feel Kering's influence taking over now

absolutly. looks like a strange mix between gucci, hedi and fruity versace. i have no idea which audience they are targeting with this. to me it looks just cheap, especially the big branding on everything feels wrong.

Something along the lines of Ann D suede deby's or like the dries ones in black preferably lighter sole
Bought some RO suede creepers but couldn't make the clown silhouette work without spending more on RO to balance it out. Would also consider black suede virgils

Well I don't want a hybrid… more an either/or. A black suede Derby or Virgils - to be worn with different outfits obviously

i think some suede derbys would fit more of your fits than virgils. (just my 2 cents…)
