Mark my words: “There will be a day when two toned (or multiple material) shoes are acceptable in all work places.” The more that factories come out with their own brands, the more that people like me write about and wear funky shoes and thus the more that people order MTO number’s that allow for color and/or material variation, the more that it will become a norm in society. I am happy about this, because as most of you know, I find it stupid that one has to resort to only wearing mega-conservative shoes in any corporate workplace. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want everyone to turn up to work in yellow shoes, but I do believe that if left to a judgement call of management allowing for more liberty in work attire, yet still upholding a standard of elegance, then people could easily wear this interesting piece above by Meermin Mallorca. And who is to say that this would not look elegant under a nice mid-dark blue suit?….Only people stuck in the mindset of black shoes underneath blue suits, that’s who!! And they are quickly becoming the minority….. So once again, I implore you to be a bit bold, and show up to your corporate job in something outside of a dark shoe and/or single tone shoe…..just try it, and maybe together we can start to break molds…. 🙂
