Because Jason asked for it...

Jason at The Jason Show left this comment on yesterday's shoe post.

"Women have so much more license when it comes to fun shoes.

Guys shoes are all...just...boring...."

Now I love a challenge. I especially love a shoe challenge. So I had to go looking for guy shoes that aren't boring and I found some. But before we get to those shoes I have to mention that the shoes from yesterday's post are also available in Men's sizes. No, they aren't just big women's shoes, Jason. The shoes I featured yesterday are Sanita Clogs, which are then painted by The Swanx the majority of their standard designs are fairly feminine but they also offer a custom design service and can paint just about anything (they also specialize in pet portraits so Jason could wear Pumpkin and Patches to work if he really wanted to.)

Now, on to the other cool shoe options...

How about these? They are sturdy and fashionable with soles that "Resist alkali, water, acid, fatigue and Satan." Which might come in handy in the classroom...

Or these?

"For music and fashion lovers alike, John Fluevog and songwriter Brother Daniel of the Danielson Family have finally released their exciting new collaboration. Complete with crowning cut-outs of dark and baby blues, crimson double stitch, and the Danielson iconic heart on the heel"

They are also available in black and white but that's a little boring...

Both are made by Fluevog Shoes. They have many other cool styles for men and for women too.

On the cheaper side there are Sketchers. They are comfortable and fun although they do tend to cause foot funk if you don't wear socks...

These are available at

So, Jason.. what kind of cool shoes are you hoping for? This is just a small sample of what is out there. Boring isn't your only option!


Jason, as himself said...

Well, thank you for this! How kind of you to worry about my footwear fatigue.

I like the last pair, a lot. The other two are a bit out there for me. I want shoes that are on the professional side, yet stylish. Some that are casual and fun, but not crazy. Today I was told that the shoes I was wearing were grandpa slippers. My other pair of casual black shoes is what I call the all-purpose mailman shoes. They've got to go.

You like a challenge, huh? Keep researching for me.

And, oh, yeah. I don't like spending a lot of money on shoes. Maybe that's my problem.

I love this!

I would wear all three pair. What? Don't judge me. I would.

I wish I could get one of my husbands to wear that last pair. I especially like them.

I love Fluevogs!!! But to be honest, I've only looked at the women's line (I bought a couple pairs this summer) and they are COMFY as well as funky! Weird combo :)! Those are great guys' shoes.

You're right though, men have very little choice in any type of fashion.
