I've been thinking about my whole wardrobe lately since it's dawned on me it needs some work. The items that I really like are ones that I have no regrets or concerns about. Anything that I remember having a "I'm not sure I'll like that"...seems I didn't.
Style aside, if you have hesitation b/c of the brand and it's association for you, don't get them. You don't need a pair of shoes that you'll ask yourself "Do I really like these" each time you put them on.
