As I said earlier, the charm of these shoes is their versatility. Anyone who says that they are inherently unwearable either in a dressy sense or in a casual sense (there seems to be both ends of the spectrum in this thread) is wrong.
I don't know about what people outside the forum pay attention to, but then again, I don't know if they care much about any clothing details.
Also, I never said the Colton's were inherently unwearable in a dressy or casual sense. They look nice, and I'm watching the price on STP in case they drop, but I think that the charm of these shoes is also, in some ways, the problem. They're neither one thing or the other.
