OK, this may be completely ridiculous, but it is a slow day at work and I would like some opinions. In mid September, my boyfriend purchased a pair of shoes so heinous, that I was rendered speechless. I went to work the next day, and googled the shoes because I wanted to show a coworker how awful these shoes were and I felt as if I had the wind knocked out of me when I discovered the price ($495). He wore these shoes to lunch with me one time, and I told him that I never wanted to see them again. He went to Vegas with some friends and wore the shoes there, but I hadn’t seen them since… Until last evening.
It was my work holiday party and he didn’t want to go. As in, complained about going all day and not getting into the shower to get ready until ten minutes before we were to leave. I was becoming pretty irritated and as we were going to walk out the door I saw them. The shoes. The bane of my existence. The most impractical and hideous example of footwear ever created. The purple rimmed, black velvet slippers with an embroidered man twirling an umbrella on the toe. A shoe befitting a pimp, not the mild-mannered, bespectacled attorney who I live with. I’m pretty sure that he wore the shoes just to get a reaction out of me, and a reaction he received. I slammed the door in his face and went to the party without him and haven’t spoken with him since. I’m going to have to talk to him tonight when I get home from work, but I don’t know what I can even say to him.
Here are the shoes, btw

You are jeopardizing your relationship over a pair of shoes?
Also, the pic isn’t showing up for me, not sure if it’s me or weddingbee!

Oh, nm, it showed up. Ugly, yes. Still don’t understand why you’re being so dramatic about it. If I were him, your reaction to this would make me uncertain of believing you when something actually worthy of being upset happened.

WTH are those things…
For $14.95 they are hilarious. For $495 I would be pissed too!

Wait, really? You would leave your boyfriend because you don’t like the kind of shoes he wears? I highly doubt he loves everything you buy or wear. Yeah, those shoes are pretty horrible but if he likes them then who are you to tell him not to wear them? His money, his choice.

@JennaWade: ok im sorry but is this a serious post? you are questioning whether or not to be with him over a pair of black suede shoes?! Im sorry but I have no constructive advice that I can give you that’s going to make sure I stay with in TOS guidelines. But I would like to see others opinions on the matter…smh…

Those shoes are god awful but no, I wouldn’t dump him over it. I mean, they’re shoes.
Edited to add that i’d be more pissed about the cost of the shoes simply because we share finances and $500 is a significant amount for us. we’d have to talk about it before we spent it. If you guys have separate accounts or are in a position where you won’t miss the money, then I say he hasn’t done anything wrong other than have really awful taste in shoes.

$500 for that pair of junk?? I would be pissed; that’s a crazy poor judgement decision. I wouldn’t slam a door in his face or dump him over it but… might make me think twice about other things he’s done…

@JennaWade: Lol I actually really like them. They’re fun.
If he wore Crocs on the other hand… or something with heels, yuck.

I would ridicule him but not dump him. Don’t blame you for being upset if he only put them on to piss you off though, at that point it’s about more than shoes.
