what's your opinion about these shoes?
aesthetically, imo, they're simply fabulous. but, and what about the construction and the leather quality?

thank you, in advance. 

Hmm, had never seen those and just found a pic. The soles/welts are a bit "theatrical"...... If you like that style, but done in a more classic way, look at Vass, Dinkelacker or Buday, you'll find pics of Buday in my tumblr (lookaround.gif). The Italians, like Santoni, Lidfort, Bonafe, Lattanzi do similar work also.

thanks, mate.

i'll take a look on your opinions.

 

i liked the Grenson's triple welt because i think they perfectly mixed classic and "casual" in one shoe. and i love those heavy style brogues.

they call them Gibsons and not Oxfords... don't know exactly why...

The Grenson triple welt just looks like a fake Bentivegna. Better off going for the real thing IMO.

I have posted a few in the regular Shoe Porn thread and have received "mixed reactions". As one poster said, it seems most people either "love 'em or hate 'em". Honestly, that's JUST HOW I LIKE IT!!!

I'll start with a couple I have already posted in the regular shoe porn thread, just to get things moving. If anyone's interested, I've got lots more.

Hi guys.  Looking for another opinion from Norvegese shoe fans.  Can I wear these Norvegese boots in business casual attire (wool dress pants, blazer, and tie)?  What about a suit?  

Thanks in advance!

Definitely okay with sport coat / odd jacket and no tie. Also okay adding a tie to a less formal jacket. I'd stop short of the more formal navy blazer and greys, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. definitely no to a suit.

You cannot: the welt is wide and the last is too voluminous for pressed trous, let alone suits. What you would need is a dress boot as they have contoured lasts, slim soles, and narrow welts that combine to make the boot look like a dress shoe with a shaft. Edward Green's model Shannon is likely the best-known example, it's a clean Balmoral boot. This is why shoemakers design, make, and offer boots for leisure and other boots for the office.
