During my early twenties I used to worry about getting older. Now I find myself humming along to the latest Coldplay single, fully realising it happened without me even noticing. Coldplay! My twenty-year-old self weeps! It is also an inescapable truth that I am now too old to wear flipflops anywhere other than a beach.
So I am on the look-out for a proper pair of leather sandals. And it is proving harder than I thought. Anything with straps that are too slim, in my opinion, look too feminine for a man’s sandal. When the straps become too thick and start moving into Birkenstock territory I get horrible images of someone growing turnips in their back garden.
I need help! And please don’t send me the link to these Balenciaga sandals. They are what I’m looking for. They also cost as much as a flight to a very nice beach.
