    These in particular.

    Fair enough. I don't like 'em either. But at least shell would give them some character once worn.

    Vass Alt Wien in dark cognac boxcalf and dark cognac scotch grain, Bupapest last , double soles, with Goyser stitching fore of the heel.

    Maybe a pair in white for the summer?

    I think that shoe needs some suede. Or maybe a swath of Harris Tweed.

    Well I don't like them either, but the color and the bulk reminded me of Foo's shoes..just trying to give the man some options. I really think he should check out the J.M. Weston #598.
