This isn't a poll, really, despite the title.. Over the next couple of weeks I'll be attending a couple of office Christmas parties and some other informal gatherings. Tomorrow is also a board meeting day where I work, which means business dress is required. So I decided to get a new pair of shoes for these duties. I won't get into where I went, what I bought or how much they were other than to say that a couple of people I talked to were rather appalled when they asked how much they were. All I wanted was for them to tell me if they liked the style, they posed the question of cost.. So, what's the most you would spend on a pair of shoes? I'm more interested in the male perspective because I know women that like to shop tend to -love- shoes.. most guys don't give a flip about their shoes and would be happy to wear rags wrapped around their feet if they could, Valley Forge style..
