The suede belgraves were probably my most worn shoes this year cause they're so versatile but I seem to be the only one that cares...

Ah, I see. Well, just keep wearing them.

My most complimented pair of shoes are a pair of squarish-toed Kenneth Cole monkstraps with block heels and a press stud closure on the straps. Seriously.

Sad as it is, that's true in America. Europeans (rightly) call square-toed KC shoes "those ugly American" shoes.

This thread is over 100 posts, with lots of submissions. Count again. The landslide is almost as decisive as Reagan getting reelected. Brogue. Additional points for texture or rare color (chestnut, walnut, cognac, etc) Considering the tiny % of shoes sold that are brogue, and the vast majority of replies to this thread indicating brogue as the outright winner, this is the most statistically significant data ever presented on SF. I am ordering the Cheaney's tomorrow. Boot + Brogue + Pebble = Homerun

Apparently that is the "Italian look." The silhouette is a bit drapey and unstructured for me, though.

What you are missing, Reevolving, is that the same shoes that get the most compliments are also the ones that attract the most dislike.

The more shoes (or anything else) stand out from the norm, the more they will generate strong opinions.

I suppose this may be why 'club' wear is wilder then business wear. In business wear, generating a mild positive impression from almost everyone is desirable. If you're heading out to pick up women, you're better off turning off 80% of women but having 20% think you're awesome.

I get your point, shoes that draw attention are polarizing, but I don't think you're going to be "turning off" most women with cheaney brogue boots. You'd certainly attract a different sort of person were you wearing keds or pumas.

I don't consider brogue boots that polarizing! I suppose some people don't like them.

Ktrp, I agree, but the beauty of brogues is that they work in the office and on weekends.
