Before I talk about this amazing pair of Ferragamo men’s dress shoes, it’s important to establish a few things.

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t do drugs. I actually don’t even shop all that often.

So, when I tell you that, after many months of eying, I finally purchased a pair of shoes that cost more than the mortgage on my first condo… cut me a break, I’ve been saving.

There’s no doubt that the shoes were gnarly expensive, but they are flat out fantastic. And you know, I don’t really know why I feel forced to rationalize this purchase. Women routinely by expensive shoes and no one blinks an eye, and the bags… the bags are an entirely different level.

With that, I give you my new pair of Ferragamo’s.

I’d look down at my feet and think, “meh.”

Great feeling, right? Not so much.

These Ferragamo’s came to my attention and at first I laughed at the price. But then I started thinking about the amount of money I’ve thrown away spent on shoes that I didn’t really love, and the purchase started to make sense. Sort of. 🙂

Nonetheless, I’ve bought them, worn them, and love them.

They have an all around great shape, great look and I feel happy when wearing them.

And if you’re curious and dying to cringe at the price, they were $650 + a painful amount of tax. Go ahead, cringe. It’s ok. But just remember, I’m a normal’ish guy, not Moneybags McGee, and I’ve saved up to buy something that I really like.

A fantastic pair of shoes can lift up a mediocre outfit, and these Ferragamo’s definitely do the trick. Because let’s be honest, men’s business wear isn’t the most exciting thing in the world.
