That's good thinking - why buy something you don't want because it's discounted?

I also think those shoes are really beautiful. I will just have to be creative.
I would also be very open to any other suggestions for what I could wear those two-tone saddles with or pics from people who already have them.
I consider these to be a casual shoe and I got a pair (from Leffot) to wear in place of black shoes/boots mainly because I find black shoes boring. I wouldn't wear them with a suit - although they'd work with summer suit fabrics, e.g., cotton & seersucker. I think they'll be great with black denim and with black, dark grey, khaki, and some shades of brown slacks.
