EAU CLAIRE, WI—Browsing for something that was both classy and versatile, local man Ron Schneider was shopping for a bowling shoe Thursday that could also be worn to funerals and weddings. “I don’t want to have a closet full of shoes, but I also need something nice enough to bowl in,” said Schneider, who examined a classic split-red-and-black oxford before deciding it was a little too fancy for a normal family dinner. “I have all these events coming up, my niece’s wedding, Wagner’s Lanes summer tournament, and my kid’s graduation. I want to get as much use as possible out of these. Hell, if I like them well enough I might even be able to walk my own daughter down the aisle in them.” At press time, Schneider had fallen in love with a pair of red, white, and blue loafers that go perfectly with his formal Packers track pants.
