    Even if they are extremely cool a shoe like this is quite far down on my "to buy list". Even if i had an extra 10 000 SEK burning in my pocket :)

    And most important, i´m not cool enought to wear them.

    I think if you're ballsy enough to join the MTO above, you're instantly cool enough to wear them!

    Alas, I'm on a shoe diet, and I'm not sure they'd fit me. But...maybe...[​IMG]

    So you´re telling me coolness can be bought? I´m afraid it´s going to hit back if one steps outside ones limits of coolness

    It's a philosophical question, to which the answer is: the thing in your head that makes you buy the black stingray wholecuts, is directly connected to the thing that makes you cool. Ergo, if you're cool enough to buy them, you're cool enough to wear them.

    Your picture is also important. If those people are defining your cool, you are not cool.

    The MTO suggestion is cool. And offers a road to coolness.

    That's my two penn'r'th. And I don't yet have any black stingray wholecuts. But then I'm cool even if I only think I am. [​IMG]

    I would boldly wear black stingray as wholecut loafers....without any reservations.

    Meaning I don't care for black stingray in a formal lace up design ( a little self conscious and trying too hard IMO) but I would definitely be into a whole cut loafer.

    A wholecut loafer...like no design at all? Just like a slipper?

    This is my intention when I get a pair. I think they'd look great with a tux.
