The Nordstrom men's shoe department certainly takes up a lot of real estate on the floor, yet looking through it is quite disappointing.
Most of it is now dedicated to sneakers. The flagship store still carries Santoni but that's really about it.
Living in "our" AAAC world, I sometime miss what is really happening in the broader "sartorial" culture. But even I can't help noticing what you did - sneakers everywhere.
Several clothing companies are now showing dress trousers, suits and even tuxedos being worn with sneakers. Not my thing - looks off to me - but can't deny that it is happening.
Faster than I thought it would, say, five years ago - suits, ties, etc., seem to be losing position. Yes, you still see them regularly, but their hold on / their requirement for situations / positions / events like business meetings, TV news, politicians, weddings, medical professionals (under their white coats), funerals, etc., seems to be - drum roll please - fading fast.
