Funny!

While in the US, hubby and I liked certain brands and one of the brands that we preferred for him was the 'Timberland', especially their shoes for guys. So, he has a few pairs of those. These are primarily designed for the outdoors. He has this particular pair that is quite rugged and cool-looking and he prefers wearing these with his jeans, even to work sometimes.

Now, here in Bangalore, he has this American colleague at work. And sometime last week when that colleague noticed this pair of shoes, with a smile, he asked my hub, "You expecting snow anytime soon?". And the outside temps were in the warm 90s (Fahrenheit) !

When he mentioned it to me, well, we had a hearty laugh ...

No problemo. People who hardly move out of their chairs or couch wear cutting-edge sport shoes.

To me, shoes are either formal or not. I don't delve into the sub-sub-sub categories. Especially when it comes to dressing my 2 year old. I was guilty of his first fashion gaffe at an american wedding when he wore his sneakers and every other kid above 6 months was in shining patent leather...

PS: Hopped over from Roshan's blog some time ago, but this is my first comment. I'm sure you have tons of silent admiring readers! Everything you've said has struck a chord, not just the shoe post :)

Welcome to my blog, Veena!

"I'm sure you have tons of silent admiring readers! Everything you've said has struck a chord, not just the shoe post." Very kind! Thank you!

yo!

The shoes your husband is casually wearing are snow shoes (worn by people in areas like new england and michigan where snow's quite common). The shoe's primarily made of plastic and rubber - and hence your hubby's collegues shock.

Most people wear these shoes from home to office - and then change into office shoes...

We kind of know that, but he likes these. :)
