16th Century for men. Maybe 18th Century for women.  

What do buckles say about the boy?

Are they compensating for something else...

Pointey or square toe?

Pointey, for sure.

Hmmm, tricky Celine or Hermes lace ups/brogues are always my favorites. I do love Anne Thomas though, especially her monk straps.

Down low on Manolo?

I love their classic styles.Their new shoes inspired by Malevich are wild, I love them.  That being said, I only have a really old pair that I bought at a yard sale.

Color, detail, how the shoes relate to the context.

What’s the last pair of shoes you bought?

These amazing velvet Prada pointed slides.

What’s a shoe trend that you hate?
