Bicycle-stitch style in shoes

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a couple of pairs of shoes, that I really like, with bicycle-stitch insteps. One pair is the Allen-Edmonds Concord (monkstrap in black); the other is the A-E Hillcrest (lace-up blucher in merlot). Are these appropriate in more formal settings like important business meetings, receptions, etc.? Or are they too far removed from the usual more formal toe styles like plain toes and cap toes to work in these settings?

What are bicycle-stitch insteps?

Look at the stitching on the shoes mentioned in the original post: Allen Edmonds Concord and Allen Edmonds Hillcrest

See, I would have said "bicycle toe" as I'm not sure what the "stitch" or the "instep" part are referring to. As for formality, I think they're probably slightly less formal than cap-toes, but that more is said about the rest of the shoe (i.e. is it a monstrap, bulcher, etc.).
