leather shoes that appeal to the streetwear crowd?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i've been a lurker in this section but was curious what you thought of this pair to go with jeans and khakis:



i also wondered what kinds of leather shoes would appeal to members in this part of the forum. it seems like with the free use of custom details and less restrained self-expression in casual fashion, there would be some demand, but i'm not quite sure what kind of samples would strike your fancy.

thanks for your feedback.

Boots. Especially chelsea and chukka boots.

That's a seriously thin sole. I'd be worried it would wear out quite quickly. Also, the toe's a little square for my taste. But otherwise, nice, and I'd certainly wear them.

I like nicer brown leather shoes (mostly brogues) with jeans (I dont wear khakis). Chukkas and chelseas are the 'cant go wrong' route for leather shoes. The ones you posted I'm not feeling...the sole seems too thin and would look a bit 'dainty' paired with jeans imo. and the toe shape is odd at best.

I have to agree with Get Smart - a little dainty for jeans or khakis.

My first thought was they look like those Capezio jazz shoes from the 80's.

I would look for something with a little more heft to them.

That is a nice close welt but overall somewhat of a mish-mash of a shoe. Agree that boots (suede or calf) and brogues look great with jeans. I would and do wear semi brogues and wholecuts with certain jeans, too, but the outfits probably wouldn't be considered "streetwear".

I second what Get Smart wrote, in all respects but especially about the thin sole and the squareness of the toe-box. If you're going to wear something that thin with jeans or cords (I don't wear khakis, either) then I think the only thing that works is a bit loafer. Broguing is also a good point, though I tend to wear less of it in general than maybe a lot of people on this forum. For example, right now with my jeans I'm wearing Ludwig Reiter Theresianers, which are unbrogued chisel-toe cap toes.
