    Well, I really was not expecting this. You had me laughing for a good minute there.

    This thread is the best.

    who don't you post your photos wearing shirt and jeans or whatever you want up. Then match them with your shoes. To me, it is not bad. But you have to match this with proper clothes.
    Good luck bro.

    This seems to be the look these days among 20-30 year old salaryman types in Japan. My AE Park Ave's started doing the same until I started using shoe trees.

    Why on earth are the toes pointing skyward? I imagine your feet aren't shaped like that unless you have a serious deformity, so why would anyone buy shoes shaped like that...

    I think they will work well as casual shoes, especially with jeans. The odd shape is because they are most likely made from very soft leather and may not last too long but should be very comfortable. Also on a positive note, in most offices you could probably even wear them to work and they would still look better than almost every other shoe there.

    Take a picture of the shoes on and post it in SW&D if you want more positive comments.
