The pithy, opinionated, and sometimes brutally frank Heinz-Ulrich von Boffke challenges average guys to live a life less ordinary and embrace classic style in the broadest sense. it's time to rise above the trite, the boring, the predictable, the mundane, the banal, and the commonplace. It's time to stop behaving like barnyard animals at the trough and leave behind the perpetually sloppy man-child aesthetic of the last two decades or so. It's time to learn once again how to present and conduct yourself like an adult with some grooming, finesse, and sophistication. And here is where you can learn how.

Pamper Your Feet From Time to Time. . .

Your feet take a beating, so why not give 'em a little extra attention?

Even with correctly sized and well-fitted quality dress shoes, it's still likely that you'll have calluses build up somewhere on your feet over time, which might potentially lead to other foot problems down the road if left unchecked.  So, how about accompanying the woman in your life to a manicure/pedicure salon a few times a year?  It's wild and crazy, I know.  But why not?

That's what I did with my wife this (Friday) morning when we took the day of just for us.  After a large breakfast at our favorite quick and greasy (actually a locally owned restaurant where the gal who runs it knows us by name and hot breakfast beverage habits),we headed from Willamston back down Grand River into Okemos, Michigan to a nail salon and spa favored by my wife The Grand Duchess.  

Without going into all of the eeeewwws and uggghhhs, let's simply say that my feet look and feel better than they have in years.  Rough patches and calluses gone.  Almost as soft as a baby's bottom again.  And the hot rock treatment on my feet and lower legs at the end of everything was divine.  The occasional pedicure could become habit forming.

What about your own feet then, men?  How about setting those unfounded fears of being/seeming too effeminate to one side, and get yourself a pedicure from time to time.  No one needs to know, and your feet will thank you for it.  It certainly put the spring back into my step.
