If you had posted this on street wear, then I'd say the first pair is pretty nice. For dressier occasions, this is absolutely bad news.

If your post count is less then 10, I'm not saying you're unqualified, but maybe you should just wait this one out and learn something from a few of the more senior members who've been around a few years.
