Big Meeting Shoes

I have big meeting shoes. (BMS)

These are shoes that have a very new look to them even though they are a couple years old. They aren't scuffed and the leather isn't all creased up and worn. I wear them maybe 10-12 times a year. They aren't worn in bad weather to get wet and salt all over them.....no, for those days I have bad weather shoes (BWS).

I keep them in my closet for big meetings. Or maybe a big event or on the rare occasion that I take one.......an interview. Definitely for a funeral or a night time formal business event. They are go to shoes. Ready to wear. No polishing needed.

I know when I put them on they will look great not that most of my other shoes don't. I'm kinda a shoe guy. I have lots of pairs of shoes. Actually, I have a few single shoes as well waiting to see if the other shoe is coming home from a weekend bender. I have flip flops that are also a flask. Don't judge. Many of my other dress shoes were once BMS and retired to everyday work status. The last stop after everyday status is BWS. I read once that the average guy has like 3 pair of shoes. I lap that by about 7 or 8 times.

I think some people have a favorite suit or dress for the same purpose. These aren't necessarily my favorite shoes but when I put them on it is important. When they don't look perfect anymore then I'll get a new pair of BMS.
I check out other guy's shoes. I judge. Sorry. I see a guy wearing a thousand dollar suit and shoes that look like complete dog crap.....or the wrong color.....yikes. I rarely look at a chica's shoes unless they are fuck me pumps.

Today, I'm wearing my BMS. Today shit could happen.
