Thats actually about as far away from an accurate statement as there could possibly be. I don't look at menswear magazines, I don't care what today's fashions are. I picked the shoes I picked because they are high quality for the price, and I believe they reflect my personality. I like shoes... what is so wrong about that? Also, I did not "lay it out explicityly" that I like these shoes because I get complements for them. All I said was that if you want your friends to be jealous of your shoes, buy these. I like these shoes because they are exactly what I was looking for. I didn't want a normal dress shoe, I wanted something that was not over the top, but still very unique, and the New Orleans fit that bill perfectly for me. I bought them on sale for $249, and that is by far the most I have ever spent on a shoe of any kind. I don't want to look anything like the guys in the magazines. Heck, I don't even know what those guys would look like, or what they would be wearing if I did run into them in the restroom. I don't "look for clothing that attracts attention." I look for clothing that reflects my personality, that I feel comfortable and confident wearing. I bought these shoes because if i'm going to spend more than $100 on a pair of shoes, they had better be the ones that I like the most. In this instance, the New Orleans from AE caught my eye. That is why I bought them, not because of some pompous looking guy in a magazine. I've already found the woman of my dreams, I don't need to impress anyone.
Thank you for taking the time to judge me and my motives without ever actually taking the time to get to know me first. Isn't there something better for you to be doing than judging people based on one comment they have written in an internet forum????
lol, you love shoes but have black eccos as your only other shoe?
Nothing says versatility like black eccos and brown woven shoes.
