    I've been searching through the forums, and was wondering...

    Are these type of shoe still considered horrendous?
    I was thinking of getting them to go with a suit.

    Forecast calls for sunny skies and no chance of those ever not being horrendous.

    Bicycle toe shoes are appropriately named because they make me want to repeatedly ride my bike over them until they are ruined.

    They're not that bad. I have 2 pair purchased during the square-toed era. Casualwear only.

    I will never understand what possesses otherwise good shoemakers to produce these Frankenstein monstrosities.

    I have a double soled pair in what looks like waxy brown saddle leather and they look terrific with Donegal.

    Get on on your bike and ride away from these shoes as quickly as your legs can peddle
