    These pebble grain longwings have more flair than all my SC PTB's (which are plain & invisible to normal people) As a bonus, b/c of the bulletproof pebblegrain, they don't really scratch. I don't fear wearing them out with excessive use. [​IMG] Do you have a "go to" pair of shoes that are always a winner? Not necessarily what you like, but what consistently gets noticed by others. Let's see pics.

    The only shoes that have been complemented by others have been my Converse low tops. My other shoes, including my $400+ pairs, have never been mentioned.

    Only had these a couple or so months and have already had countless compliments and a few have placed orders with Cheaney.

    People are overwhelmed by them and don't know how to react. [​IMG]
    P.S. The best "shoe" compliment I ever received from a girl was when one of my friends said that I always look like I'm wearing brand new shoes. Of course, I explained that I only wear each pair once and throw it out. It was a very pleasant compliment.

    interestingly enough, i am in the same boat, unsolicited compliments came from a 17 year old girl who mentioned that she like my light blue converse hi-tops

    I recently had a colleague ask if my Alden Suede chukka's were Clarks Desert Boots [​IMG] I seem to get asked about these AE Tresanas more than any others. I think it's the color. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, if the shoe fits...

    I am with you. I have never owned a pair of shoes that have received more unanimous approval and praise. I have yet to run into anyone who does not find something appealing about them. Although my G&G's and EG's are certainly more near and dear to me, these darn boots have something for everyone [​IMG].

    That's just about the perfect winter boot, IMO. I'm smitten.

    The ladies love the brogues/wingtips! I have the same Cheaney boots as kev777 and get loads of compliments. The other shoe that gets the same attention is another brogue, Loake Chesters.

    same. goes with the fact that the world at large cant recognize quality shoes, but will notice that theyre clean and well kept

    Solid comeback.

    You remind me bitterly of "New York" writ large.

    Not a pleasant feeling whatsoever.

    The most compliments I get are on a beat up pair of AE park aves that I got for $50 shipped on B&S. No compliments for my EG, Alden or other AE that are in better shape.

    Those Cheaney FS029 boots are beautiful indeed. If only I needed a new pair of boots...
