What if you're Asian, like me?

this has already happened: belgian loafers. but yeah, the high-end examples on TMag are painful.

@elias tezapsidis@twitter Belgian shoes are a complete lifestyle choice

get out. of. my. head. I just bought some new old-man slippers for my apartment (leather, sheepskin lining) while I was out running errands and I thought to myself 'I wonder if people are going to try to make those Arabesque Orientalish evening-slippers happen soon…'

so yes, do not people.

Ok those "shoes" in the picture….no.

Wearing classic opera pumps to something not quite requiring the formality the shoe brings? I can say yes to that.

New Summertime Game on the High Line: Counting jackasses wearing court shoes with skinny jeans rolled to capri length. It can even be a drinking game!

"I don't know – they're called sexpadrilles or somethin'."

Yeah, but what if I'm already wearing my ascot and smoking jacket?

Are those fried eggs on the slippers of the guy in the picture?

P.S. Does Pappagallo still exist? because these slipper folks need to consult them, STAT.
