Manolo the Columnist: Panama 2 from Geox

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

Now that my youngest child is in school, I’ve decided that it’s time to ease myself back into the work force by substitute teaching. Unfortunately, my usual footwear for the past few years has been sport sandals and tennis shoes. Can you recommend some stylish, yet comfortable shoes?

Manolo says, the Manolo can think of few more difficult jobs than that of the substitute teacher. It is like being the lion tamer forced to enter the cage armed only with the feather. One must attempt to maintain the discipline conducive to good learning without being given the best tools available to do so, principally, the bullwhip and the taser.

Of the course, discipline was never the problem at the Manolo’s alma mater, Our Lady of the Flaming Spleen Country Day School. There, all of the nuns were well versed in maintaining order using the combat skills taught by the yardstick-based martial arts.

However, if the level of the rowdy-dow could not be quelled by the usual means, word was sent down to the boiler room for Sister Assumpta (who looked like Earnest Borgnine in the wimple) to make the appearance. Usually, the sound of her hobnailed boot and peg leg clomping down the hallway was enough to end any disturbance.

Look! Here is the Panama 2 from Geox, the good-looking maryjane wedge in bordeaux suede that will keep you happy through the most difficult class.

    As a former teacher and current social worker, I save my limited funds to buy Cole Haan flats. I find them to be durable, attractive, and really comfortable. I am on my feet a lot and really need something high-quality, and CH has been really dependable so far. Stuart Weitzman flats are great, too.

    This is the kind of thing I mean:

    Good luck!
