Illogical moves (as seen by others) are sometimes founded on childhood memory stuff like that ... or of course sometimes we're just illogical for no reason at all!
I can buy that.  I love the feel of grass on my bare feet, but I hardly ever go outside without shoes because my folks always told me I'd get worms if I went barefoot.  
Which, I mean, IS a thing around here, but man has it got to be uncommon with the amount of barefootedness I've always seen out of these hilljacks.

Maybe all the hilljacks have foot-worms?  How would you know?  You ever check out their feet?

As a kid I never wore shoes either.  As I've gotten older, my poor beat-up old feet require I wear them.

Man ya'll are a bunch of minivan hating, tender foot baking faux macho men, ain't y'all?

When my ninos were small, the missus and I acquired a series of minivans because they were voluminous but much less costly to acquire and fuel than SUVs.  Back then to get a third row (outside of the minivan field) you pretty much had to get a Suburban which cost as much as a small farm and got GPMs instead of MPGs.

So we had a 1998 Plymouth Voyager.  From 1996 to 2000, the Voyager and its sisters (the Dodge Caravan and the Chrysler T&C) were the least boxy, most teardroppy minivans ever built.  And they were ubiquitous.  Everybody had one.  

Then in 2005 we traded it off for a 2004 Pontiac Montana.  Now the Montana was a jewel.  It was so smooth, comfortable and quiet.  Had the quad bucket seats and built in DVD player.  I loved that minivan.  We'd probably still have it if some dang fool hadn't rearended us and their insurance company declared it a total loss.

So after much fighting that even required us to get a lawyer and file a claim, we finally settled and got a 2006 Saturn Relay.  It was a lot like the Montana but it just wasn't the Montana.  It was like the dog that you regrettably buy right after your beloved 15 year old dog dies.

Plymouth, Pontiac and Saturn.  Were we the kiss of death for American marquees or what?

Along about the time our oldest had cars of their own and my i s c & a w wasn't having to transport a car load anymore we traded the Relay in on a 2013 Jeep Patriot.  Now it's about time to give the youngest the Patriot and move up to acquire a Grand Cherokee or Durango or Explorer so we can pull a small travel trailer.

But often times when I travel for business , if a handful of us are having to travel, I'll rent a Dodge Caravan.  It's good stewrdship.  I got read the riot act the time I rented an Expedition so I stick with Caravans to save $10 a day and to avoid confrontations.

I love to get somebody else to drive, crawl back to the third row, pull down the shade, plug in all my devices, fold down the middle bucket to use as an ottoman and kick back.  I'll have my big drink next to me and about three vents blowing hard at me.  It's really pretty nice.   It's not a bad experience.

The worst part is that so many people are moving to Texas, Enterprise doesn't have any vehicles with Texas plates anymore so you have to drive around looking like you're some rube from Wisconsin or Arkansas.

I really don't cornsider myself to be a macho man, but I ain't drinking diet coke, light beer, and Zima, or driving a minivan, and certainly not wearing flip-flops, which back in my day were referred to as thongs!

of course, we didn't have the thongs of today back in the 70s.  We referred to those as wedgies or snuggies.

If y'all think that thing between yer toes feels weird or awkward, it would seem minor compared to having something between your cheeks.

I drink Diet Coke.  And I do consider myself to be a macho man.  So something's gotta give.

Well as for me, I’m very secure in my manhood so I have no need to drive truck, wear boots, belch or posture.  So I metro.  I drive economical vehicles, I eat salads, I work out, I dress fashionably, I color the gray in my hair and smear collagen under my eyes at night. I even carry a briefcase just so my car keys and wallet won’t bulge my skinny slacks. So yeah I guess I do posture after all.  I pretend to be a guy 15 years younger than I am.  And if I’m not actually pulling it off, folks are nice enough to play along.

I do, however, have a fashion dilemma.

I grew up to believe one wears brown shoes and belt with browns and tans and black shoes and belt with blues and grays.

But now I can afford all kinds of shoes including colors like gray, blue (really more of a navy) and saddle.

Saddle as you probably know is a light brown that’s an almost orangy leather.

Personally I think the saddle shoes and belt look bad ass with my very light gray (not dark gray or charcoal) two piece suit and most people under 30 tend to agree while most people 40 and over consider it a faux paux.

Those vocal opinions leave me torn. What thinks ye, oh college football chums?

The saddle shoes are probably fine with the light gray.     I highly doubt anyone will turn you in to "What Not To Wear" in either case, if that show is even still on anymore.  

When I was a kid, my mom would say my pants looked like "high waters" if the pant leg didn't go all the way to the ankle/shoes. 
Nowadays, all the pants look like "high waters" since they are all cut above the ankle, and it's the latest style.    
It really is hard to keep up with the shifting taste, styles & trends, and half the crap that is pushed in the fashion magazines are ridiculous trends anyway.
At one point, denim top with denim bottoms was a no-go, but now I'm seeing the double-denim look everywhere.

Ah the old double denim or Canadian Tuxedo as one of ninos told me it’s called.  I’ve always been a fan provided the colors contrast - faded jeans with a much bluer and less faded shirt.

I loved it in about 1991 when Boys II Men took denim to the urban mainstream with their Motown Philly video.

One of my favorite outfits was in about 1992 when I’d wear a pressed dark blue denim shirt with olive colored pleated Dockers and a wild slim knot wide at the bottom Jerr Garcia tie to tie them both together.  

Great look.

I miss denim.

Charley,

Your fashion sense has always been top notch when I've met you in Texas at various locations.  (usually Bonedaddy's)

you never come across as any of the 5 metro-sexual men in Erin's pic above

I'm thankful of that.  Not that there's anything wrong with that or the way they dress.  Just definitely not my style

Yes, the saddle shoes are bad ass.  I'm planning to purchase a pair soon.  I usually reference them as bowling shoes when I notice them looking good.

Thank you for your kind words, Frankie.  

But I should point out.... when I say saddle shoes I don’t mean the snazzy two tones Wally’s girlfriends wore with his letter sweater on Leave it to Beaver.

I mean a solid one color loafer the color of Matt Dillon’s saddle.

Primo, I don't have much fashion sense so can't comment other than to say it sounds kind of "Palm Springs" to me, not in the sense of old geezers playing golf etc, but am thinking more of the actual physical landscape out there, which is pretty light colored with a lot of sand and rocks etc.  You might be able to blend into the landscape kind of like a chameleon.

You could always say that you're tracking in on the Arizona Buff Bench Boulder look (and beyond the buff bench boulders look also at the gray of the Navajo Boulders or the Smokey White Ice Boulders ... these sound like the color scheme you're putting together):

https://www.southwestboulder.com/products/arizona-buff-bench-boulders

Anyway if it feels and looks good to you, go for it, I say!

I can't find the exact shoe.

It's a Florsheim driving loafer, like this:

But orangy tan like last one I posted.

I like em.

Last pair of loafers I had was back in college in the early 80s

since I'm not big on spending money on shoes, I have a dilemma.  Do I get the saddle/bowling shoe or the loafer?  Both classics.

Loafers

Only time I tie laces is if I'm hiking or shooting hoops.

I like rubber flat soled loafers made of leather so soft it's wrinkly.

Like Baloo told Mogli when they were floating down the river, "Man, that's living!"

Since I'm a person for economy of movement, particularly when it comes to arranging clothing, etc, I'd opt for the loafer.  No shoelace action. 

Actually the shoes I wear to work are lace-up black Eccos:

https://us.shop.ecco.com/holton-apron-toe-tie-621114.html?dwvar_621114_color=01001

But I often treat them like loafers, sliding them on and off without tying or untying the laces.  The good thing about Eccos is that the soles are really resilient, including dealing with the constant Portland rain and wet streets.  They last forever.  I should probably check into their loafers though ...

All you non-shoelace people are my kinda people.  Y'all get it.  Life is too short to spend tying and untying shoes.

Unfortunately I can't handle much else besides sneakers (tennis shoes, whatever they're called) these days, and even that only with orthotics.

Even if my shoe has shoelaces, I still just slip them on and off.  Except for my actual running shoes, those I lace up each time but you know, since I'm exercising, I'm okay with that.

I have terrible flat feet and a short achilles tendon so laces on my shoes has always been a good thing

I need some new golf shoes
