When do you dump your docksiders?
I don't know why I had this thought today, maybe to get my mind off the news of the day (more on that later). So I thought I'd write something light and ask when should I retire my docksiders?
My current pair has been a very important part of my wardrobe for a few years now. Admittedly they are beat up and showing their age. However, I don't have any holes in them (do you remember in college taping them up to save your favorite pair? So do I stay with the old friend or start looking for a new pair? I even looked at Sperry's web page this morning.
My feeling is that the summer is starting to come to the end, Muffy is all worked up about sending the kids back to school, so the current pair will make the fall. But you do not want to be that dork with bright new shoes on Memorial Day next year. The only solution maybe buying a new pair in the fall and beating them up a bit around the house for the winter months. Even wear them once or twice in the snow!!
Yes, I know very silly and trivial but that's what I'm thinking about this am....
