    Well then more of an example then, brown tennis shoes goes with just about anything right? Wearing jeans and a grey sweater isn't that crazy is it?

    in sizing nicer shoes (non-sneakers), is a little bit of heel slip normal? I normally wear a US11 in sneakers, and i recently bought a couple pairs to try on. I sized down to a 10 in a pair of floresheim for duckie browns and they fit my foot, with a little bit of heel slip, but the leather rubbed against my ankle strangely, so wasn't very comfortable. needless to say, the size 11 had a lot of heel slip, so I returned both. I have a pair of alden x epaulet boots in a 10.5 on the barrie last, and they don't slip at all, but they're higher laced boots, so, not a very good base case. also, is there any way to fix heel slip? by say.. using an insole? thanks
    Heel slip will cause blisters on your foot and early wear on the shoe.

    skull

    IMO, the skull one is pretty ugly. Has a huge gold logo all over one side of it

    If all you want is denim, they're easy enough to make if you have a machine that can handle it (or the patience to hand-sew). The leather would make it more of a pain

    I have neither the patience or the machine/skills, lol

    Well, if they're non-returnable, I definitely suggest an athletic insole. It'll help with that ankle problem (which doesn't bode well...) and the heel slip. Wear thicker socks too. Both have worked for me.

    Don't do anything until they're broken in. They're already treated. A shoe tree is to keep the shape of shoes. For casual boots like those, it's a little silly unless you're storing them long-term. Once worn and scuffed, avoid colored polish unless the scuffing is deep and you hate the leather color showing. Use clear/non-colored Kiwi polish for a shine or Mink Oil for a satin sheen, water-proofing and to keep the leather soft. Others might recommend Obenauffs'

    White or Black would look 10x better and go with 100x more fits

    Can anyone tell me what is a good way to protect a leather outsole from rain/wet ground?

    Does it even need protection (I imagine it does)?

    You can still wear leather soles on wet pavement just fine as long as you give them a few days of rest to dry out before you wear them again, but when wet they'll be more susceptible to wear. If you plan on wearing them regularly in wet conditions, I would topy them (a rubber sole placed over the leather).
