Sorry dude, but those are some ugly ass shoes, the Eccos, especially. Wearing either pair, especially with jeans, screams out a fashion statement, either "I'm an American Jackass. When I go out, I also like untucked bias striped shirts" or "I love Will and Grace. And the t-shirts that Simon wears on American Idol are not too tight. Man nipples - okay by me." So unless you are either an American Jackass or a gay clubber, don't do it. Black shoes with jeans look crap anyway. If you can't/won't wear sneakers, try some distressed or waxed brown or tan or even cream colored leather laceups, chukkas, or chelsea boots, either slim or chunky, depending on the rest of your outfit. Loakes make a decent pair of chukkas at a reasonable price. And I saw a really interesting pair of above the ankle Bruno Magli laceups a while back. John Varvatos makes some pretty comfortable and stylish crepe soled boots and shoes on a consistent basis, and my favorite boots and shoes are, repsectively. the more rugged styles from Costume National and from Dries van Noten, both often available at discount.
