Gucci Shoes - Page 2

post #16 of 22
do you mean those : Because those are some ugly shoes. If you are going to pay premium for designer shoes... Thinking of it, I have only seen americans wearing those, at our world's convention gala dinner : must be a cultural thing. And yes, I work in a bank... .luc

I find the Gucci shoes to be the most boring aspect of the designs, especially since the departure of Mr. Ford. I would take Helmut Lang or Costume National first if we're talking on ~$300-500 designer terms.
Yep.  I'd also add Dries van Noten, Prada, Varvatos, and pretty much everything else in the (designer) category before Gucci.
gianni barbato. Really. .luc

To each his own I guess. But there is a time and a place for the classic Gucci horsebit loafer in black. I have a pair and wear them to the office every once in a while on a Friday with a pair of odd trousers, say in glen plaid, and a royal or navy blue long sleeve shirt. It, in my mind, is a very classic, understated look. I would never pair them with a suit though.

Yeah - those are the classic Gucci loafers I was talking about. Mine look more like this: Mine, however, are split toe, and the bit is bigger and brass.

What is the opinion here on Gucci shoes.  The classics... in NYC everyone has 'em.  $495+ a pop.
According to the Gucci website, they're $395 for the classic horsebit.  For what it's worth, I would go so far as to call them a wardrobe staple. They're an iconic style (and fun to wear irreverently as well). Ryan

I have a pair of the "classics" in Gold suede that work well to go out at night paired with a white untucked T&A button down and jeans.

I disagree. I have several pairs and they are not too "fashion forward". Yes, they look good (damn good in fact) and are well made. Agree that Armani and Prada are boring but even more thn Gucci I love Versace shoes. Breathtaking little details that I adore and very stylish. Certainly not for the over 40s though. A good shoe wardrobe - for me -should hae a mix of the conservative, classic and modern and stylish. I like to think I have all 4.
