Yep, good shoes rock. What's changed is the quality of clothes in general. From a retail price scenario you have to spend 100% more to get the same quality you would have received just 5 years ago. Nordstom used to have quality clothing now they are nothing more than high end cheesy. Their slacks absolutely stink. They are not worth the trip down to even try them on.
