There is the practical side of clothing and shoes: the need to keep us warm or cool, to protect us.
Then there is the fashion side, which at its best is expression of ones personal style and values. And at worst, it is a frivolous chase from one trend to next amounting to piles of    ill-consider, ill-fitting, poor quality items that get tossed to make room for the next load of crap.
