I don't get fear of cracks/uneven surfaces. The shoes are there to protect your feet in such circumstances. If the sidewalk condition is so dire, the solution is to watch where you're walking, not to wear sneakers. Also, they're just clothes.

BUT. The notion that you wouldn't wear sneakers with your suit because of what the other people on the train might think? Please. Or that you might cockblock yourself? C'mon, man. That's some serious edge-case thinking. Also, would you turn away a woman who was otherwise well put together because she wore sneakers for the commute?

 

I agree with both parts of this post.  I walk a considerable amount and never find any of my dress shoes uncomfortable, and if I did I would get different ones.  For foul weather I have shoes that are built for the purpose (e.g. Tetbury's).

Agreed. I walk all day long in dress shoes, including several 30 minute walks, and don't find it uncomfortable at all. The only downside is that your soles deteriorate very fast. I have a rotation of about 5-6 shoes, and find I have to resole all my shoes at least yearly (if not more often), which can get pretty expensive.

Have you considered having a rubber out sole (Topy) installed?

I always thought having a topy could cause issues later on, because of moisture retention or something like that. I might just give it a try on one pair to see what happens.

Would a topy last longer than for example a dainite sole? I have a pair of dainite shoes that I had to replace the heels of twice and finally resole after about 9 months of owning them.

I asked the photographer twice if the feet are going to show and he said negative only to see this. But we had a good laugh at it. LOL

Without them sneakers.

 

(I don't know why the photographer made me button the bottom button on the jacket)

I topy all my shoes with Vibram soles. I have yet to replace the topy on shoes that I purchased over a year ago and wear 2-3x a week. I'm not sure about the moisture aspect. They seem pretty well sealed to me.

Ugh, I wanted to tell him that it shouldn't be buttoned but I just let it go. 

But I agree that it should be my signature pose minus the bottom button...buttoned.

It does look like a solid pose doodals. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'd just wear beaters if I was concerned about hurting my shoes during my commute. Because why wouldnt you?

I can't believe you listened to him. Photographers have some weird power. He probably told you to do that so your belt wouldn't show.

What is the overall opinion on string loafers? I have a hard time getting behind tasseks from some reason, and I have plenty of pennies already. I was thinking about these from Meermin:
