Those are awful.
I really don't care what your opinion of the look or design of the shoe is. I am specifically asking about the quality of the construction.
So are you saying that the quality of this shoe is bad? Your saying that there are better shoes available for $60?
There are better shoes for free at the homeless shelter. yes, that's what i'm saying.
Nah, I just left there a few weeks ago. They don't even have shoes.
So please great Nefarious one, educate me as to what is wrong with pair of shoes. Explain it so a heterosexual can understand it, OK?
Oh boy...here we go...
I realize perhaps that statement was out of line and I apologize.
I did note however that the Nefarious dude only posts negative comments on every thread he posts on and never posts anything helpful at all. If you don't believe me just take a look at his posts for the last 30 days or so.
They are aesthetically displeasing; an odd and incongruous mix of styles, none of which are particularly good and they most definitely don't go together. To wit: they are ugly.
Once again, I am not asking for opinions regarding the shoe design.
The thread is titled: Cole Haan quality or no? not Cole Haan stylish or no?
I do appreciate the style advice though. It just isn't my purpose for posting this.
I am specifically asking about the quality of the construction of the shoe.
So does that apply to this shoe as well?
If not please explain the very minimal difference.
Who cares how well it's made when it looks like shit.
You got hosed, no one cares if it's well made or not because it's awful looking.
You are useless.
the guy's got a point. If they are italian CH, they are probably fairly decent. The reason you got them for $60 because no one else wanted them...and thats cause they are ugly.
There is no elegance to that squared off last, then you got the austerity wingtip, then the tassle, different leather grains, etc.
They are a mess.
Put them on ebay and hope you get $50 for them.
You are not getting the answers you seek because (1) its darn hard to judge quality from a picture of an old shoe; Cole Hahn might have had some decent quality in the past but they're all over the board now, and (2) the ugliness of the shoe makes a discussion of its quality moot.
Whether the shoe is ugly is or not is an opinion. If the shoe is well constructed and made of quality materials is not an opinion.
I see no one has commented on the AE shoe pic I posted above...
Also, I have looked at NefariousSabatour's last 15 or so posts outside of this thread and they were actually all useless, thus my statement that he is useless.
actually quality of construction and materials is also an opinion.
The AE shoe isn't much better, but the lack of the austerity wingtip helps. I don't see anyone singing the praises of that shoe either. Just so we're clear, the shoe is not ugly because its CH, its ugly cause its ugly.
