How do these casual shoes compare to the aforementioned brands and are they in fact worth 150 dollars.

US$150? That's pretty pricey. In Europe they're more than 30% less.

As for Campers in general, though, they're not bad for the money. I would say that Docs are slightly better, quality-wise. (Be they the US$100 Doc Marten version, or the 4x as expensive but identical Yohji Yamamoto version.) Still, they're definitely a step up from that Kenneth Cole dross.

Still, only get them if you want to wear the same shoes that literally every four of five Southern European and Gulf State (UAE, Bahrain, etc.) twentysomething, go for it. Now, there are some originals who can use them despite their rampant popularity to good effect (a friend of mine in Brussels wears red ones exclusively, and another friend who's about to enter the Peace Corps has a pair of bright blue ones in his closet), but for most, it's strictly a lemming choice.

Peace,

JG
