Stuff that pops into my head. Innit.

I have a complaint. Actually, I have several -some of which are quite nasty, but you don't want to know about that- this complaint is about shoes.
This post was brought about by complete and total envy of the amount of different styles and types available to women compared to men. We have two styles, trainers or shoes -in brown, black or white. Wow, you guys have a million different styles in every shade imaginable, and I want to know why there's such great disparity in the ranges. Do the manufacturers think men don't care? Maybe most of us don't, but I do -I want better shoes, now!

My daughter bought these recently, you wouldn't believe how jealous I am.

Wow.....I am actually jealous of those too.

Jealous that I would never be able to pull that look off in a million years. Jealous that your daughter is that cool.

They are hot. Quite literally.

Again, I'm agreeing with you on this post fizz. We men have no choice at all. This is probably one of the reasons I despise clothes shopping.

Look at it this way, Fizzee: at least you aren't sidetracked by all the lovely things you could spend your hard-earned money on. It's tough being a girl sometimes with all the shoe choices available.

I'm actually drooling over a pair of flats that come in the French tricolor of blue, white and red. They also cost 124 euros. :-P

So we're all jealous? Glad I'm not the only one.

And Barb, the flats sound very cool.

hear hear!
men only fashion shops are rare.

have you noticed how there are the unisex clothing shops and the mens clothing has like a corner with a couple of business shirts?

my dad has masses of shoes from europe where he used to pickup great stuff in small side streets of italy and spain.

That's cute that you want better shoes..

Go to J.Crew.
They have some nice shoes for men there. My husband doesn't like them, but he doesn't have good taste in shoes.

So... you might like them. :)
