Those Hamptons are pretty casual, particularly with the pebble grain. I've been considering them myself, but I think that as a first shoe you may want something more formal. You won't want to wear those to a job interview.

It won't really matter what you wear, but I would never wear wholecuts to a client meeting. I certainly don't wear them to court. That's what PAs and FAs are for.If your...
