Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2435

If you like the profile of Raf derbies go try out and the Allen Edmonds Leeds model, seriously. I had both albeit the pebbled grain Leeds, which I prefer, and I could not tell the different. Upon closer inspection the Leeds is a little bit rounder that I like more. YMMV

Good tip, I like the shape of the Leeds and know AE are well made (I have a pair of Strands). Do they run larger/smaller or narrower/wider than strands?

They are not as narrow and run roomier than Strands I believe. Go with your CP size e.g. I wore a 8.5US and wear a 42 in the Lemaire boot

I'd rather have the white Christy sole or the regular dark sole over those, but they're fine. It's hard to get excited over moccasins in 2014, but if you're going for some kind of heritage look, they could fit the bill.

Christy looks to clunky for me, I doubt I could pull it off.
Maybe I'm a bit behind regarding what's hot in 2014, so what are the go-to shoes for everyday beater nowadays? Please note that I tend to avoid sneakers as I don't think they go with my overall looks, which is far from sporty. And no boots because I already have some DB's.
Thank you in advance.

$400, a good deal I guess?

The heel needs to be a bit higher to balance out that toe.

That plasticky corrected grain leather looks terrible to me. Shoes like that have a usable life of approximately one curb scuff. I think the shoes would go well with sharp shiny suits, of which I own exactly zero. Good price on a not-so-good shoe, whatever that means

Hmmm derby is too dressy and I always think a man should stop wearing vans after graduating from college.

Not going to lie, those moccasins look just as college-y to me as vans do.

but I'm a college student and own like five pairs of vans

I thought it was just that one line that was done by Church's, while the mainline is some Italian maker.
