Although getting out of the house hasn't been on the top of my priority list we did go out for a bite to eat one evening and I decided to wear my new shoes. I bought these saddle oxfords with my eBay bucks from money spent at Christmas so I got a really good deal. I used to wear these all the time and fe…
