    Just noticed your comment about them being real leather shoes. That's terrible : ( Why would you want to wear an animal's corpse on your feet?
    Stuff like that doesn't bother me in the slightest. It might seem heartless but it's just a waste of material not using it...

    lol all brands are just made in the same factory in bangladesh anyway. your the fool for paying ££££ for shoes and clothes that only differ by the logo.

    jamestg i really like them!! they look really smart and sophisticated
    No. As a matter of fact, I refuse to deal with companies that use exploitative methods to reduce their running costs

    For example, Christian Louboutin is one of my favourite brands. Not only are their shoes made in Italy, but they also use world's finest materials to produce items of the highest quality. For me. that alone justifies the price tag, but we mustn't forget the prestige associated with such brands either.

    I'd say that you should at least opt for something of decent quality, for example by a brand like Russell & Bromley.
    £200 for a pair of shoes, I don't want to leach off my parents thank you very much. I'd want to use my own money from a job to get something like that.

    I just hate the thought of my parents having to fork out lots of money on me, even though they can afford it they shouldn't fund anything nice for me. If I want nice things, I should work for it - not take away from other people's efforts.

    Lol, who cares about animals? They're inferior creatures, but I'd obviously never wear human leather because "we're all equal" and all that.

    By the way, I wear jackets and gloves made by leather which must have been taken from the finest specimens, and I'm proud
