Some non-traditional footwear choices with jeans, comments? - Page 2

post #16 of 30
Yup, the alligators sound dope and once again it depends on the jeans. Mine are casual, two are a tapered just right squared toe and one is round. I'll have pics in the waywt thread one of these days. You can't go wrong man they're classic but most of their stuff started getting ugly last year.

I'd NEVER wear the Gucci myself. However, bals, boots, and especially wholecuts are all things I'd do. Hell, even the good old AE Fairfax in that pale goldish brown tan can look nice (IMHO - I have a thing for wholecuts as I am sure it is evident by now).

Heh, I actually tried on the Guccis a bit ago and they actually look really good IMO if a bit flashy, but could definitely work with the right outfit. I have a couple other ideas I'll post up later.

See, it combines a few of my figurative kryptonites"
Loafers, made by Gucci, with gold trim. All three are things that alone would make me run, lol.

Just for you my friend, I will make an extra effort to post them, though they don't have any bits but they are the sickest shoes I own. Love the guccis.

Those Guccis are fugly. The bicycle seams... I don't know what to say. No offense, but burn them now.

The boots are too delicate IMO. (I really don't like bal boots anyway, but these aren't as Victorian-woman looking as a lot of them) They won't look like the Alden commando boots, they will look like very dressy delicate dress shoes. However, a heavier duty blucher boot or wingtip boot might look great. I like my EG black wingtip boots with jeans, but they have to be the right jeans, and non-black would look better IMO.

The top ones would work, but not for an adult IMO. If you walk around smoking a joint all the time, maybe.

I don't think captoe shoes should ever be worn with jeans. Wingtips or wholecuts/plain toes work much better for that sort of thing IMO. The monks might fly, but they'd be better with a plain toe.

Does anyone think there's a difference between wearing balmoral and blucher wingtips with jeans?

imo Bluchers look better with jeans. they come off as less formal and more in sync with jean vibe.

I have the John Lobb plaintoe medallion boots in black. They are FAR too delicate, shiny and formal to be worn with jeans.

I agree. Bluchers, boots (including chelsea), or shell cordovan penny loafers. (Shell cordovan can be a good look because it is a heaftier hide.)

wallies look great with slimmer jeans. looser cuts just swallow them though

I think the monks and the ankle boots would look great. The captoes would probably be ok too, and I'd have to see the loafers since it's kind of hard to picture it in my head. I don't like the first boots at all, but I wouldn't like them in any situation.

I'm looking for shoes to wear with jeans and unstructured khakis during the summer. All my winter shoes are dark brown or black so they feel out of place in the summer. I usually wear short-sleeve button-up shirts or a linen sporcoat over t-shirts, so sneakers are too casual. But I think dirty bucks or white wingtips (never mind white loafers) are too dressy to wear every day. Any ideas for shoes that fit that niche? (And will I have to worry about indigo?)

I wear shell cordovan penny loafers, blucher wingtips if the jeans or khakis have wide legs, and chelsea boots. Monkstraps work with my dressier khakis (i.e. those that hold a crease) and I sometimes wear them with jeans. But take my advice with a pound of salt, since I'm not a master of streetwear.

Would you wear the loafers without shoes? Are some of those other shoes in a light shade of brown? Thanks for the rundown, but none of those are very summery options.
