Would color #8 longwings work well in both casual and more formal environments? I work for an IT company, so it isn't suit and tie every day, but I was wondering if they would work for the rare cases I got to wear a suit at weddings, interviews, etc. I'd rather avoid black shoes, since I feel like they're more limited.post #31371 of 1224166/29/12 at 2:54pmpost #31372 of 1224166/29/12 at 2:58pmQuote:
And let's not forget, they're good for picking up all the crap you walk on all day and bringing it back into your home. As you might guess, I'm not a crepe fan either.post #31373 of 1224166/29/12 at 3:09pmpost #31374 of 1224166/29/12 at 3:10pmpost #31375 of 1224166/29/12 at 3:16pmpost #31376 of 1224166/29/12 at 3:19pmpost #31377 of 1224166/29/12 at 3:22pmQuote:
they are both very early models, a pity that they havent pusblished the black or the natural one in this size, or one with crepe sole. before i had owned the roy boot and 403 in size e and d, but they where to big for my small feet.post #31378 of 1224166/29/12 at 3:35pmpost #31379 of 1224166/29/12 at 3:52pmpost #31380 of 1224166/29/12 at 3:58pmQuote:Originally Posted by jimney

IMO, color 8 longwings are your best option. They go well from casual to more formal environments, and I am sure many pothers on the forum would echo that same sentiment.
