Okay, I am fully aware that I have a problem buying shoes! Ever since I saw these shoes in the Neiman Marcus catalog, I had to have them. But, I could not justify paying full price for these. Yes, please mark your calender with that statement. I just said I could not justify buying a pair of shoes! Well, Kentucky has been good to me. I found them today for 75% off. I was so excited. My dad was there and just smiled. He is a huge fan of Chuck Taylor's. He likes the black ones. I called my sister with the good news and she said, "Metallics are very neutral." I hope everyone enjoys them. If you would like to borrow them, please email me with the date and time you would like them. I will see what I can do. I know you all secretly want a pair!
