If you think you’re the only one that has a shoe fetish, meet my friend Brent Adams.
This guy is always dressed to the nines with the most fashionable soles to boot. It’s such a breath of fresh air to be around fashion conscious men. I almost forgot they existed. Up until a few years ago (I finally flew away), I was constantly surrounded by wannabe gang members whose wardrobes consisted of Vans tennis shoes with tube socks, and smelly, baggy jean shorts worn below the waist so low their underwear showed. The look was usually paired with some sort of message T-shirt relating to guns, politics, or how you’d better get your life right or else you’re going to hell. Geeze! I thought I was already in hell. Oops! Did I say that out loud? Sorry, I digress.
Anyway, yes, sharp dressed men (with class) do exist in Fullerton. And they’re all on the Day of Music board of directors (with the exception of Wade and James from Lux, but that’s another blog).
Brent’s shoe collection takes the cake. Every time I see this guy he has a different pair of shoes on. And they are designer! I’ve always admired his shoe choices, but one day the iconic (and coveted) red and green stripe he was donning hit me like a ton of bricks. “OMG!!! Are those Gucci?” I exclaimed.
“Yes.” He replied nonchalantly as he swiftly disappeared through the front door of my shop.
Later that evening a bunch of us met at the local wine bar Vino Nostra (for vino and venting), and I decided to delve a little more into Brent’s shoe addiction (I mean hear more about his fabulous designer collection).
He admitted to owning over…hmmm…I better not divulge. He might be the type of guy who hides packages in the trunk of his car (Alfa Romeo BTW, it’s obvious he likes Italian made) and sneaks them in when his wife isn’t there? I’m seeing her this weekend, so I better not stir anything up.
Let’s just say, including tennis shoes, flip flops, and driving moccasins, the count is close to… shoot, I just can’t do it! For now, we’ll just applaud his fierce style and his impeccable taste in shoes and be thankful we can all get a glimpse of a gentlemen who knows that dressing well is a form of good manners.
Remember to walk the walk (in great shoes of course)!
