On the subject of women's footwear, the iconic nonagenarian Iris Apfel once proclaimed that "If your hair is done properly and you’re wearing good shoes, you can get away with anything." While us guys might not be bound by the same adage, a dob of pomade and a cracking pair of shoes will invariably improve whatever situation one finds oneself in. Your hair product of choice is easy to come by, but a cracking pair of shoes can be more difficult to find without necessitating a bank heist (one thing a great pair of shoes won't help you to get away with, sorry Iris). Hence that's why you should make the most of The Rake's Black Friday Weekend sale to fill your boots with all manner of elegant footwear styles, from loafers to Oxfords via brogues and boots, all at significant discounts. I've compiled my editor's footwear picks from the sale below.  There's no time to flip-flop.
