Master, you forgot the schooling emoticon when you school us like this. That one:

Still don't like.

Not me, I found the picture on AAAC (this thread). I cannot see myself wearing them in town. There was only one pair left in a shop, too big for me, and at 75% off I was thinking of purchasing them as a present for a friend. Obviously these shoes are too weird, so the risk of the person not liking them is high....

+1. Work/heavy weather boots don't need to look like dress shoes. Style and function are clashing too hard.

Perhaps kicking small animals out of the way is part of their function. Then the toes would be justified.

Master, thanks for imparting a small sliver of your knowledge upon us mortals. I feel like I learned a great deal today. This contrasting lining is clearly wonderful and a hallmark of connaisseur elegance.

Well it might be a “connaisseur” thing, but is it a “connoisseur” thing?

Quote:
Connoisseur

a person who is especially competent to pass critical judgments in an art, particularly one of the fine arts, or in matters of taste:
a connoisseur of modern art.

a discerning judge of the best in any field: a connoisseur of horses.

I suppose, a “connaisseur” is something different to a “connoisseur”!

Isn't it enough just to say you don't like the boots? Offensively ugly is just being nasty and rude.
I am sorry if this is you? The owner of the boots is happy. No need for you to be sorry?
