    Cinnamon Sport calf Leather
    I like the Suede tongue and the suede on the top of the heel
    Rubber soled. Great leather.

    Great casual shoes. I have no experience with JL sneakers but I believe Heschung makes many of the casual shoes for JL. What's the country of origin? If it's France, they are definitely made by Heschung.

    Oh no.

    Sorry, I think they're terrible. I can't get into leather dress/sneakers.

    I think I'm with Chorse - I just don't get it. Where or with what do you wear them?
    But of course, jmho - if you love them, more power to you.

    I wear them as summer day casual.

    With matching belt, they go well with everything from jeans to cotton/linen pants.

    Actually I have found brown leather "sneakers" to be great for summer casual wear - I don't like loafers (actually I detest them). I have a pair of Bexley leather shoes of this type and I have mulled over some of the nice ones Stu has on his site. Nice purchase.

    ---Same thinking I have, I stopped wearing sandles and have started wearing these type of sneakers. I have some Ivory Suede sneakers also. I see these as more elegant(no toes), more comfortable, and protect the feet better, also, great when driving a stick shift.

    I agree. I recently got some ivory/khaki suede Puma Futurecats that are great when driving. These two Sutor Mantelassi are nice (shameless plug for VHC [​IMG] ): http://www.virtualclotheshorse.com/i...id=81083253317 [​IMG] and http://www.virtualclotheshorse.com/i...id=81083253317 [​IMG]

    Nice. Again, much better than loafers & boat shoes - that is one line I adamantly refuse to cross [​IMG]
    Oh, and crab shorts [​IMG]

    Funny. I looked at those and thought, "why would anyone wear those when they could wear loafers or boat shoes instead?" [​IMG]

    To each their own.

    I'm fairly calssical in dress, but boat shoes just have no flair and give me that old man vibe.

    PS I get compliments on sneakers from some rather attractive young women, so I'm sticking with sneak's in addition, they are more comforable, better for driving, and infintely more stylish. I like loafers though for more formal restaurants and such at times. A brown loafer can look quite refind, stylish, and have some flair.
