They seem to be dress shoes, but something tells me they're not.

Those look like Chukkas to me. They're pretty versatile I'd say. I have a similar pair which I wear with jeans or occasionally a suit. Suitable for all but the most formal of events/workplaces which would require black oxford shoes.

They are are in the middle of dress and casual shoes. I had a pair of Grenson boots that are almost identical to yours. I mostly paired them with jeans and chinos.

They are some nice shoes, but I would never wear them with a suit.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
