    i think at first glance, it looks like calf swims, on top of suede shoes.

    It's a beautiful shoe. But the bright blue suede would make it hard to wear. The perfect 200th shoe.

    I am not fashion forward enough to wear this pair of shoes.

    Since Tony was the creative director for EG, I think that's enough reason for Aportnoy to add G&G to his stable. :D

    I've heard there are people who despise G&G for the way they left EG. But then I am not local to the Northampton shoe circles to know anything.

    The royal blue is hard. I would wear it if the same color as the leather was in suede. Would be an awesome shoe.

    The blue with the electric blue suede would be extremely difficult to wear.

    Blue in general is a difficult colour for shoes because you can't wear it with navy. It works well with grey and light washed blue, IME. My pair are 3 eyelet bluchers, which is one of the most versatile make-ups, and even then there's a limited range of pants and jeans I can wear them with. Grey jeans, grey pants, washed blue denims...that's about it. I was hoping they'd go with my taupe flannel trousers and they do sometimes but only in specific outfits.

    That make-up is balmoral style so it's inherently formal, but the electric blue suede means one couldn't wear it with a grey suit because they'd stand out too much. I have a lot of interesting coloured shoes - green, blue, white nubuck etc - but I don't think shoes should ever be the focal point of the outfit. They should be nice details that people notice after they see the rest of your outfit.

    I just can't see a situation where those shoes would blend in.

    They'd perhaps work at night with grey trousers.

    Please excuse me if this sounds preachy, but I think you should focus on how the shoes look on your feet rather than in the shoe rack. Getting picky over gimmicks is one of the great successes of internet marketing. IRL the "nice deets bro" don't mean anything.

    Although I do admit I was rather intrigued the first time I saw the purple Carmina lining.

    Also, YMMV, obviously

    With vermillion red trousers, royal purple smoking jacket, and faded yellow shirts. Gotta go full peacock for that pair of peacock shoes

    Wow. Very brave sole souls here. I can't do it. Too flashy.
