I need to see crepe in person, but the pictures I see are not attractive to me at all.

I do not like the crepe sole at all.

I'm wearing crepe right now, and I think it's awesome. Seriously, it's comfortable, durable, great for walking long distances. Never quite understood all the hate for it, other than the fact that it's "different."

I don't like the way it looks. It is comfortable, though.

I am trying to acquire my first crepe soled boot right now. I hated it for a long time looks-wise but it's grown on me, and it fits this boot's aesthetic.

My winn perry little tanks are some of my most worn boots.  The crepe is very comfortable to walk in and good in wet weather.  I do think it looks best when there is little contrast between the upper material and soles like with with chamois or dark suede.

Ditto - looks terrible sometimes...but my feetsy loves it - to me crepe is perfect with suede make ups.

Love the look of the crepe sole. What I dislike the very least is the commando sole. Reminds me too much of a Timberland construction boot, especially the heel profile.

I think Wolverine does a closed heel commando - which is very nice..much sleeker looking

These are 11D from the Shoe Mart. Is it just me or does it look like the left boot was lasted wider than the right? It looks like the right boot was lasted on a C width rather than a D width. What do you guys think? The left is roomier and the right is perfect.

(these are Rancourt Horween shell but figured I'd throw a pic in)


Looks nice👀 I would like to see Black Shell or #8 Burgandy with these great trousers...

You mentioned that crepe soles are good for wet weather and that is the complete opposite of my experiences... Is higher quality crepe sole just better at being more water resistant?

post #117795 of 122416

shoe and clothing related items i used to avoid and now love:

 

boots

tassel loafers

crepe sole

really blue and stiff jeans

jean cuffs

button down collars

knit ties

 

(still struggle with black shoes, pants, shirts, etc)
