I think that's why i like them so much actually...my style doesn't really call for "formal" shoes often and I think these would spruce up a navy suit in spring/summer, or add a touch of dandy to jeans and jacket.
I've really never had anything like them before, so looking forwad to their arrival. full look shots en route for sure.
there's a great picture a few pages back of these....maybe i can find it.
They're sort of like AE Strands in walnut (although, admittedly, a more formal style). I don't have to go for the full black balmoral get-up very often, so it's not a big deal for me to wear tan shoes with a suit in the summer. These would be perfect for that.
