I cleaned these up some, with lexol cleaner and conditioner. Are these just too hobo looking to wear with a suit or just slacks and dress shirt
How are these allen edmonds - worth keeping?

I'm personally not crazy about the color, but I think these are still very usable.
Not sure how they looked before, but they look decent now. They could use a bit more cleaning inside the brouging and around the seams (use a q-tip).
I'd fix the damage on the left shoe at the tip of the toe box. There are some good threads on fixing this kind of damage. Hopefully dye isn't needed.
Also clean/condition the edge of the sole, particularly where the stitching is. Might need some edge dressing.
Top it off with some new wax laces, maybe matching the color of the edge of the sole.
