Pair no. 10: Now, you can’t believe this, but this guy wearing the toes shoes was with a beautiful girlfriend. A beautiful and somewhat embarrassed girlfriend. I found them in a hip park in Philly, opposite The Parc restaurant, sitting together on a bench. Now, the geeky side of me thought these were pretty cool shoes, but after seeing the aggravation that this poor girl was feeling, I have changed my perspective. No matter how comfortable and techie-gearish or naturo-earthman, a guy shouldn’t embarrass his girl by what he is wearing. Even if geeky me says that these shoes are “blog-worthy” –which, you know, they are. Geeky. Blog-worthy. Earthman street. Kind of goes along with driving a “contraption” — you know, like a Segue.
