My ownership of these shoes is unlikely for a few reasons. First of all, I tend to shy away from menswear shoe trends due to...having feet larger than some men's. No sense in inviting the comparison.
The second reason is that I paid retail for them, a fact that brings great anguish to my bargain-loving heart. I did manage to coupon-hack some free shipping, so it wasn't a complete wash.
Also, they're leather! On account of my insufferable bleeding-heart-ness, I really try to buy any leather goods secondhand if at all.
I've since benched my guilt, having worn them quite literally every day for the past three weeks. I can be so hungry yet apologetic for the Material sometimes, drafting mental rubrics of what is deserved and required and ethical. It is exhausting.
