I tend to have similar issues in the front of my left shoes bc of the clutch on my car, and may try something like this if polish doesnt take of it.

Maybe it's time to invest in some driving shoes?

On the other hand, there are other threads that are markedly different where I might suggest you wear a hard hat and welders goggles before entering... nod[1].gif

,

How are you, friend? 

I have to agree with @Cleav
 on this one. That V-comment was anything but passive aggressive, constructive criticism rather. Plus, if you are gonna let comments from netizens hurt your feelings then you got another problem.

Sorry guys, I wholeheartedly disagree and stand by my initial sentiments.

The point is that the 'constructive criticism' was unsolicited and unnecessary. He was sharing his first purchase - we should clap for him. That's what secure individuals do. It's called sagacity.

As for the 'hurt feelings' comment. That's cute. It has less to do with being an Internet tough guy and more to do with cultivating a platform of class equal to the shoes we enjoy. Most humorously; the ones who pipe up the most are often those who have the least to show for it.

He is an early 20's fixed gear riding, coding hipster thought it would do him some good to look at proper shoes. he did say it was the most civil sample sale he has ever been to.

Sorry about the rubbish IPhone photography. one day I'll learn to take decent photos.











Anthony Cleverley has a model called Nakagawa that looks exactly like yours. It makes me wonder. Beautiful shoes, well done

@MrVenneri Offering fit advice and criticism to someone with less experience is a valuable service, whether you agree or not. Moreover, calling something passive aggressive that was in fact an attempt to be helpful is wrong and absurd. I would suggest that you tone down your attitude of superiority and moral outrage. There are plenty of people who contribute constructively to this thread and did so long before you arrived. Everyone is entitled to his opinion. But wholeheartedly disagreeing to something does not make you right.

I think the suede Nakagawa oxford looks swell. If the guy who wears them is happy with the look and fit, that is fantastic! No one is trying to detract from anyone's shine and happiness here.

I have thought about it, but i dont own any driving shoes, or loafers and there is always some trepidation when considering going into uncharted territory. I have been just dealing with it for the time being (they are shoes they will get beat up) with polish as needed if the scratches are very obvious. Sometimes i also just wear my sneakers especially when wet or snowing outside and then change into my shoes when i get to work. I am sure at some point i will look into "driving shoes" or even loafers.

I was thinking of acquiring a pair of tod's to beat up. Presently EG doesn't offer any sort of driving moc. I would love a pair in suede or doak.

I thought the same and bought some blue tods last year. Don't get the wear I'm afraid, might wear em handful of times when away at the beach bar etc...

I have had the same pair of Tod's for a decade plus. The classic gommini soles are not the most hardy outside of the car or beachy environs. They are great for driving and light walking,

MrV,

What is the alternative? Do you suppose we all cultivate an, "Emperor's new clothes" mentality? Excuse my use of hyperbole while I try to explain to you my perspective: if I am prancing around town in my new pants with the zipper open, the person who points that out to me is, in my mind, a kind stranger with good intentions. Yea, it was unsolicited but not unnecessary.

Also, if you are going to advocate class, then you contradict yourself when you label a friend's comment as cute. To me, that is more denigrating.

Don't let that stop you, find a pattern and have Them make you a pair via their TD program. If it turns out well we will follow suit biggrin.gif

Now that I think about it, the only solution commensurate with the shoes being protected is not moccasins, but a chauffeur.

Or Uber
I think to have a chaffeur you would need a car with sheepskin seats.

I do actually use Uber a lot for destinations within the city but that has to do more with parking than shoe protection.

I have been tempted by TODs on numerous occasions since they have a big selection and they are always on discount during the end of the season sales but have not taken the leap yet.

I dont think I own a single pair of footwear that does not have laces other than a pair of sandals, so for me it will be a monumental moment in my footwear evolution. I need to think wisely about the pair that will make history...
post #28079 of 28933
^^^^^you should definately add some loafer I added two of them & loving them & one is in mto. Tod's are also very nice & can be picked at amazing price biggrin.gif
post #28080 of 28933
Another loafer fan here, I've got a few pairs, among them 3 pairs of EG, and some Tod's too.

The fit is not as forgiving as laced shoes so best tried on in person, but I have long been a fan. I'm waiting for some time on holiday so I can give a recently bought pair of EG Portland their maiden voyage.
