    so my quest to find shoes has come down to these three options.

    1) http://www.bluefly.com/pages/product...der_id=6615001

    2) http://www.scoopnyc.com/Product.aspx?iPID=6801&iCID=127
    AND http://www.journeys.com/catalog_deta...letic&id=46632

    3) http://www.bluefly.com/pages/product...der_id=6615003
    AND
    the dunks show before

    once again, i am a college student and i am looking for a nice going out type of shoe that isn't going to be too out of place on a college campus and will also be pretty durable for the philly winters. i have three blazers i wear and they are all black or dark blue.

    Of those, I'd go with #1.

    ONLY the dunks. The rest of the shoes just look clunky and blah. The first pair just looks wrong - balance is all off, and shape is terrible.

    #1

    I really like those Varvatos. I ordered a pair earlier today. I think they would look really slick with jeans, and if you can find a 15% off coupon, they're an even greater deal.

    #1 is ok but not great. It's a going out boot and wouldn't likely work well at all in inclement weather. So it's a fair weather boot which is a bit silly.
    The dunks are a great campus shoe but the other two are bad. Very bad. They make my eyes hurt. If I have to choose I'll go with #1 but I'd rather have an option of the dunks paired with a better shoe of any sort so I could them instead of the boots.

    Assuming you were buying from bluefly and that you haven't ordered yet, #1 is sold out.

    I wouldn't go for those dunks. I've seen them in the store and the fabric just isn't that cool.

    We're not telling you not to buy shoes. Just not those shoes. [​IMG]
