Just imagining sitting down, crossing your legs and it everything working really well.
I'ma wear them with some Margiela chinos I have today. Carla will take pics.

Personally, I think anything but minor distressing usually looks terrible and in this case I feel the same way. Why would you want to project the idea that you don't know how to take care of your own clothes? It's different if it's natural and represents your own lifestyle in some way, if you are indeed a bum on the street with only one pair of shoes, but when the rest of your wardrobe is expensive high fashion garb in pristine condition it looks awfully contrived.
Truth be told I have a sort of reckless disdain for my footwear. I drag my feet, always catch the corner getting in a taxi, trip on a curb, etc. So it's sort of a humorous take on the way I wear things and what they eventually look like. I also hate taking my shoes to get them shinned. I could have gone to Leffot and bought a nice pair of "Men's Clothing" style shoes; but, I have plenty that will work for that. My other option was getting another pair of Jil Sander handmade shoes...but, I didn't want to wait 10 weeks again.
