The Poor Man’s Vin Diesel

Manolo says, oddly the poor man’s Vin Diesel is Vin Diesel.

Manolo the Columnist

Manolo says, the Manolo’s most recent column for the Express of the Washington Post it is now available for the downloading. Today, it is the shoes for the super fantastic scientist.

Dear Manolo,

I’m a scientist, and my work in the lab requires much standing and walking back and forth. When I was a grad student I wore sneakers, but now that there is a title next to my name, I’d like to wear something more elegant.


Manolo says, oddly, the Manolo he personally knows many of the brianiac scientists, and he would have to say that sartorially they are the sorry lot, perhaps second only to the mechanical engineers and the German fashion designers in terms of fashion faux pas per minute.

Thank goodness for the lab coat!

And so given the usual standards of dress which the scientists adopt, the Manolo he cannot but be cheered that his friend would seek out professional counsel in the matter of feetwear. It is with such minor victories that the battle against ugliness is won.

Of the course, this quest of the Manolo’s scientific friend, to find the comfortable but also super fantastic and affordable shoes, it is the search for the Holy Grail.

We who are but the humble servants of the shoe, we spend of our lives looking for this elusive and majestic relic, and she who has located it truly has found the “pearl of great price”.

The Manolo he does not say that these shoes from the Stuart Weitzman called the Buckminster (like the Buckminster Fuller!) are as unto the treasures of heaven, but they have the reputation for comfort, and they are in the opinion of the Manolo stylish enough so as to shame the scientific colleagues into wearing something better.

P.S. The Manolo he would also recommend this shoe below from the J.P. Tods as being suitable for the serious and diligent scientist who wishes to be stylish
