Did you ever find yourself suddenly appreciating a classic/ vintage design that you'd never cared for aesthetically after discovering a practical advantage or its design purpose? I used to not much care for harness boots. Didn't like the harness in particular - I remember back in the 90s when I had a pair of cowboy boots buying ones with a removeable strap / harness, as I thought the built-in harness ones looked naff, like they were an imitation - you know, like those awful things you see on many leather briefcases these days that look like buckles til you get up close and then the buckle is a fake front for a push stud / clip / magnet / whatever? Of course, I later discovered the true design purpose (at least historically) as to why they are there. I also have come to appreciate the design more recently as a potentially easier on/off without (un)fastening buckles - attractive from pov of Winter air travel (in warm weather I wear penny loafers) or anywhere else when it's cold but security might want my boots to come off, and it's much easier if that's a quick off and fast back on... I've noticed this with a lot of other vintage things as well where I came to a whole new appreciation of the design after seeing the utility anew. Anyone else have this experience?
