I must admit I don't have a high opinion of dress shoes in general.
They are, in essence, overpriced and uncomfortable. They aren't even worn to impress - they are worn to fit in at business meetings, funerals, weddings, etc.
Which makes me wonder if I should buy DANCING SHOES instead of dress shoes because at least at weddings they would be comfortable for dancing in.
If I could go to business meetings barefoot I would.
Maybe I should have more meetings in Japanese restaurants where you have to take off your shoes anyway?
Proof that I would rather go barefoot than wear something uncomfortable.
