Do these shoes do anything for you? I have to admit that I am somewhat infatuated with them. Part of it is that they are Strands, amongst my favorite AE's. The other part is that they are suede; I recently was trying to scratch the suede itch for the first time. I popped that cherry when I found the chocolate suede Player's in my size.
I have other needs; Bourbon Strands come to mind as do chocolate Dalton's.
I have no idea what I would wear them with. They feel like a novelty, but the infatuation is there nonetheless. Perhaps it is the get 'em now or never aspect to them. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm a fan of suede, and I do like blue, but I'm not liking this style that much. I think it's the bright stitching that turn me off. Plus, they're a couple years late with the color blue, which makes it a little harder sell. The Player's in blue suede was magnificent. I also like this makeup for Lands End Canvas much better.
