I don't think he was worrying about or bragging about his shoes-you missed his point. Others on this thread have continued to bring his shoes to the forefront.<quoted text>
Anyone "man" who worries about what their shoes look like while working at a Lowe's store is a real h0mo, just sayin'
I believe his point was that as a manager you are expected to wear "business casual" and he was back in receiving "helping" unload a truck--even though he was "dressed up". I don't know DMXMD but I respect any manager who will get jump in and help. Our managers (even some DM's) won't jump in and help-they will stand by and watch you work but won't ask if they can help or lift a finger to help. They don't get my respect.
BTW-you pay good money for something and usually it is better quality and will last. Footwear is like that-buy the cheap shoes and your feet will hurt and they won't last--especially walking on concrete for 8-10 hours a day.
