September Song” is an American pop standard composed by Kurt Weill, with lyric by Maxwell Anderson, introduced by Walter Huston in the 1938 Broadway musical Knickerbocker Holiday. It has since been recorded by numerous singers and instrumentalists. Although the song was written as an old man’s lament for the passing of his youth, some of the most famous versions have been recorded by women artists. Thus Sarah Vaughan‘s version of 1955, and Ella Fitzgerald’s with pianist Paul Smith are both regarded as Jazz classics.

The WMNS Air Max 1 SP from Nike are liquid metal looking sneakers with a gold-coated upper and white out-sole. The golden shoes feature detailing on the tongue with “Au” printed on the top, and leather lining with a perforted insole. I guess gold is the only thing with real value to invest in these days!

My worse nightmare is to get a drop of rain on my pair of John Lobb William. But with autumn and worse, winter, on their way, I’m becoming paranoiac and I don’t wear much of my shoe collection. However, I am wondering if this pair of John Lobb City III could be the solution to all my fears. Indeed, it has a rubber sole and metal eyelets but keeps the legendary 7000 last that I love. Besides, I digg the black grained leather!
