The end is nigh

I have worn Topsiders for some part of every day, with very few exceptions, for the past 45 years. Only in brown please, as I live a thousand miles from the nearest ocean and haven't been on a sailboat in 25 years.

Topsiders are the perfect shoe, but you already know that. Now Sperry have gone and done this. As if the crocodile version wasn't gaudy enough I present for your edification Topsider chukka boots. No, even if you spend your own money, you may not buy these, and you will not associate with those that do.

May several suits rot in hell over this.

It seems once they get a taste of being in "fashion", everything goes down the toilet.

Ugly. If you want chukka boots, buy Clarks. Otherwise, forget it.

HOLD ON! Now, these Chukka's may in fact violate evreything that is wholesome about Sperry Topsider, but Mr.T please keep one thing in mind before damning certain executives to hell. The "suits" that you refer to PAY MY SALARY! They keep your granddaughter in a reputable private school, feed your family, and deep down probably help you to sleep better at night. Besides they are not the worst shoe made by Collective Brands Inc.(PSS)

May I introduce you to the Champion Amaze. A "Croc"-like athletic shoe.

BTW: MissA is current;y reminding me that this is soon going to, once again, be a free country and you have a right to voice your opinions.

one doesn't put a spoiler on a 62 Lincoln and one doesn't _____ with Topsiders. A CrisCraft would yelp in pain if one set foot on board in this livery!

What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. 3h2s8i5b1b2y3a9j 8g8l7j5g0v8a3a2l 2t5j2k0l3z5w7r6g 1w6g0b4k4z8g7z5e 4v6q1l2o2s7a2i6o 7m7w0s4i9r6j6s3p 3k6v2l6w2o1n5i6c 4t1c6b6z8s6u9y6p 3k1t5g5d1m5n0k3i 6n7j5o5k7q0y6y2x 5y5v6p3k8a5f7t2o
