Thoughts on this shoe? Worth the price tag?

I'm thinking of picking up a pair, not sure yet as to how i feel about the skull in the front, but love the rest of the design/last of the spectators.

Brown Suede / Brown Leather.

If I am not mistaken, I thought last year's spectators were a lighter shade then this years?

Can someone confirm this?

Also if anyone has recomenndations to another brand let me know

awesome shoe if you can pull it off, available on b&s from time to time


Maybe it's just me, but i noticed the skulls quite easily.

I tried them on the other day, feels very comfortable, I was surprised.

What is B&S?

I really like mine. The are a great fall/winter shoe. The momento mori medallion is really hardly noticebale irl. My bb specs are the brown calf with snuff suede. I really like this combo. The suede and calf harmonize and don't scream, I am a spectator shoe from across the room that a more contrasting pair would. The overall tones are the same, it's the texture that changes (calf->suede). I noticed that NM is offering a version in brown calf with chocolate suede this season which is much less pleasing imo. Not the best shot, but will do...
