Most women love to play dress up. They change their makeup, their hair, their nails, their shoes- everything on a day to day basis. Most men, however, prefer to keep things simple; they gravitate towards the same pants day in and out, wear shoes until they began to show holes (and some men long after), and prefer comfort over fashion, hands down. If I hear Jay try to argue a case for his paint splattered, checkered Vans, one more time on the way out the door to visit my family, I'll probably burst a vein. In general fashion is about self expression, and the person wearing the clothes and accessories should always feel comfortable in them; but every wife/girlfriend/significant other has known the embarrassment of a lazy outfit at least once. For the most part, Jay picks out his own clothes- I let him do him, so to say; on the contingency that we always have a 'backup' outfit suited to more dressy occasions.Abetone Lady boots, and style conscious Vinci Oxford style men's shoe. Unfortunately, for me, the women's sizing doesn't cover my 12US feet, but the gorgeous range of preppy to casual shoes of HeyDude would certainly work for my style challenged prince.
I've bought numerous shoes for Jay in the past; most an utter disaster- too narrow here, too long there, and not comfortable to wear for more than 10 minutes. (And I thought I had shoe woes with a size 12 women's!) When the HeyDude shoes arrived Jay actually pestered me as to when he could wear them. When he first put them on I held my breath, waiting for the inevitable complaints. To my delight I got the opposite, "These are actually quite comfortable, I can see myself wearing these." he remarked, warming up to them. As we trounced outside to snap a few pictures I heard yet another remark about comfort. Of course I knew there was a special patented 1/2" thick removable insole inside. All HeyDude shoes include a pigskin lined EVA/Rubber insole that is entirely replaceable.
There is a fine line, where fashion meets eco-friendly; and for many years it has been one obscured with over dramatic intentions and impractical execution. Let's face it, being 'green' isn't exactly one of the top things thought of when we're classifying what's sexy or fashion forward. When I began a search for an eco-friendly accessory that was gender neutral I was not at all expecting WeWood. Founded by an Italian Shoe Maker and 2 Eco-Friendly Fashionistas in Florence, Italy, circa 2010, WeWood is the answer to a cry for functional and sophisticated sustainability. Made primarily from scrap wood and featuring state-of-the-art Miyota movements, WeWood watches are splash proof and chic.Many of their styles go on back order often!
