It seems so wrong, right? Especially after being forced to wear saddle shoes for years as a part of my all-girls' high school uniform. But, God help me, I love these shoes by G.H. Bass. (Remember Bass Weejuns? They still make them.) I should be disgusted - nay, repelled - by these oxfords. And yet, I've got to have a pair. But, with the 2-1/2" heel or practical flat sole? That is the question.
I'm thinking the flat makes more sense. I'll have to scuff them up immediately because, as I recall, too-white saddle shoes were never cool.
