I’ve been seeing a lot of menswear shoes for woman on style-focused websites—shoes like these:
Except…I can’t make it work. Perhaps you have to be young…or super leggy…or European (as these women obviously are) to pull off the look. I bought the black monk-strap shoes pictured above and tried them on with a pair of ankle-length skinny jeans. I looked as if I’d raided my husband’s closet, so back to Zappos they went.
I’m not sure what the problem is, so if anyone can figure out why menswear-inspired shoes look so good on the women above but fail so miserably in real (baby boomer) life, I’d love your input.
