EDIT: NEW IMAGE UPLOADED. OLD IMAGE WAS DISTORTED. APOLOGIES IF YOU WASTED YOUR VOTE BECAUSE OF THE SHAPE. Here's a photo I took while I was in DSW a couple of days ago. I really love these shoes: they're dark enough to be dressy, but the styling is definitely edgy and not something I've seen before. They're heavily discounted, also. My ONLY hesitation is that I feel like an ahole advertising that my shoes are Gucci (note the script lettering on the top of the shoe), and I would ideally like these exact shoes without the branding.My basic idea in creating this thread was that if the stodgy trads of SF don't think it's that big a deal, I will in turn learn to get past it. Also, I could just reserve these shoes for when I want to make a kind of FU impression (like going to a club or a large party). And I'm aware chicks will dig it just because they gush over designer shit, but I would rather not come across as a brand whore. I thought if I just slept on this issue I would realize the answer myself, but I haven't, so I'm putting it to you.
- Does the Gucci script by itself make these shoes uncool?
- Is this a minor detail that I should just live with?
- If it does make the shoes look douchey, is it okay, in your opinion, to have a pair of someone dbag penny loafers for special occasions?
- Will I have another opportunity to find a pair of loafers like this in a similar design? Are these unique?
