    [​IMG] Hello all,
    I am thinking about purchasing a pair of Bruno Magli ostrich shoes for casual business use, and would like to know how others feel about wearing/owning this type of shoe, and what you wear them in. Thanks.

    I'm neither a fan of ostrich nor Bruno Magli. As stated by O.J. Simpson, "those ugly ass shoes."

    I don't know of a situation where it would be appropriate to wear ostrich shoes. I find them ostentatious and gaudy.

    Zelli makes a more stylish ostrich shoe, IMHO and between that shoe and a pair of ostrich Cowboy boots, one feels their collection is complete.

    Boots with jeans, ect
    shoes occasionally to work and out to dinner.

    definitley an occasional shoe, I wear my boots tons more.

    I'd have to agree - in a shoe I don't like it so much but in a boot it can work.

    I'm not normally very keen on ostrich at the best of times, but damn are those some ugly shoes.

    Are you 20-25, incredibly fit and possibly ina boy band? The only way I would wear those is if I were kitted out in All Saints clothing.

    Too many anglophiles on this board to even mention Italian shoes.

    I like Italian shoes. I don't like ugly shoes.

    Well, how many pimps do you know? And what line o' work must one be in to have a gaggle of pimps as acquaintances? Especially ones wearing ostrich shoes. [​IMG]
