Craig Winters, a Six Pack Flurry lap-poodle has this to say about proper shoes for men. If I had been sitting in the room that day when he said this I would have went out and bought a pair of these forbidden shoes. That is what Ambassador students did in Pasadena when Spanky Meredith went apeshit over men wearing pink Izod shirts. Of course he had to claim pink alligator shirts were a homosexual conspiracy. Most of the guys in that class went out and bought pink shirts and wore them to class the next tie.
In a Spokesman Club meeting one time, Craig Winters instructed us, "You should not wear slip-on shoes, loafers or penny loafers, and don't wear shoes with tassels. Tie shoes are the shoes that you, as leading men in the church, should wear." We were discouraged from wearing "burgundy shoes" but "black and sometime brown shoes would be okay." Months after this lecture, the local minister and his three sons were all still wearing slip-on" shoes.
