    I don't know how I could ever justify this much money on a pair of shoes, but I love these. They are pretty plain, but there is just something about them. Anybody know something similar that I wouldn't have to take a second loan out for? They are bottom left.

    +1 and the upper rights would be it for me if they were. The bottoms look like golf cleats though.

    It's probably that "Brunello Cucinelli" tag and the corresponding price tag.

    Had it said "Faded Glory" you probably would not give it a second look.

    Brown plain toe derbys are always charming.

    Though those are the wrong kind of derbys- they have the minimal vamp instead of the longwing vamp. Purely an personal aesthetic choice, but I'm right.

    Trickers has a model with the right kind, the Woodstock.

    Those shoes look like something I could buy at dillards for $100.00. Not worth it.

    + 1 again

    You could also use them as a comb.

    I saw the BC shoes at a recent trunk show. I was not impressed with the finish or the colors and I usually like rubber soled shoes and Cucinelli. The toe is VERY round and large. Maybe that will be what all of us aspire to wear in 2-3 years? (it seems so 90's Armani) But for now they are just too out of proportion to the rest of the BC cut IMO. The quality of the shoe does not justify the price. Get some Trickers at less than half the price or some C&J if you want to spend more.

    The clunky shoes are exactly in tune with the Cucinelli aesthetic.
