Hve an amazing trip!!

jozen said...


ok, i love grey.. so grey and i am a size 37.


wallflower said...

Those look awesome - liking the style. According to a conversion website, my size would be a 38? For some reason I feel like that's too big of a number. Ugh, I hate shoe sizes! In fact, I think I'll stick to a 37.

I also like grey, but navy is pretty too. Wow, am I indecisive or what?

SWEATshirtDRESSshirt said...

it's amazing how similar these shoes look to tom's! definitely not a bad thing.

i thought it was interesting how these were the traditional working class shoe of argentina. one of my good friends moved there a few years ago. i can tell from the pictures he has taken that argentina is a beautiful country.

my shoe size is 37 and i prefer the white. :) thanks for doing this giveaway!
