Does anyone actually wear shoes like this?

Is this a topseller for AE or something? Freaking blue distressed wingtip chukkas with red brick sole?

As GBR would say: dreadful.

That shoe looks exactly like something my friends gfs would try to get them to buy.nod[1].gif

I don't mind the colour, or the distressed leather, or the red soles, although perhaps not all together, on a casual boot. But this particular design looks like an unfortunate collision of a desert boot and a longwing, styles that do not really belong together.

I can imagine it was designed by a committee brainstorming what would look really cool in a boot. I'm just surprised it doesn't have monkstraps too.

What, no obnoxiously colored laces? Seeing far too much of this kind of thing as of late.  I'm ready for the "lets just pile everything on" phase to be done with.  I do have a pair of C & J Skyes that I like but that's as busy as I get.

lol8[1].gif I've been curious myself about these newfangled names AE is coming up with of late. 'Honey, have you seen my Cronmoks?'

I have the blue Neumok's and they're amazing.  Never had so many compliments on a shoe before.

 

I agree on the Chukkamoks tho.  I wanted to order those yesterday because the deal was so good, but I just couldn't do it haha

I don't have any of these, but my understanding is the Strandmok and Neumok are both big sellers.  In fact, I think the Neumok is now available at Brooks Brothers.
