You know, a few years ago I would have made fun of anyone wearing shoes that cost more than $50. But the older I get, the more I'm willing to pay for comfortable shoes.

I still can't imagine paying $520 for shoes, but my price range has definitely gone up. When you're 20 years old you really have no idea just how important comfortable shoes really are.

But this is my favorite line from the linked story.

"If you think that's a lot, you should see how much his purse costs"

Last year a coworker was wearing some really goofy looking loafers that you can tell he had spent quite a bit of money on and was quite proud of that fact. My comment was something along the lines of, "Nice shoes. Do they sell men's clothing where you bought them?"

(Just ignore the duplicate in the post below. It's close to quiting time and my brain has already shut down.)

Thank you for this post! It is so good to see that The Nation and all the other liberal media (yes Tom some do exist) have seen the foolishness of criticizing Republican candidates for being elitists. No more tales about how somebody doesn't know what the price of milk is, no more country club references, no more talk about not considering debates worthy of your time because you happen to glance at your watch.

So mature!

So principled!

A revelation!

Good to see all the Democrats will now focus on the debate of ideas and limit their media organs to the simple black and white (no pun intended Squid) facts.

This is quite a day; you must be very, very proud.

Unlike the $50 or $90 shoes we might wear, a $300+ pair of shoes can last a lifetime; you just have to get them re-soled every now and then.

Anyone with a six-figure income can afford three-figure shoes, and since those shoes can last almost forever, in the long run, they end up being cheaper than $50 shoes every 2-3 years.
