    I'd say these guys. Edward Green Oundle in mocha suede.

    I'll compliment those Oundles and add some envy.[​IMG] Just beautiful shoes.

    My Tramezza monkstraps get the most attention.

    I'm not much of a shoe buff, at least not nearly on the level as a lot of people here, but my Walnut AE Strands usually get a fair amount of compliments. And interestingly enough, probably in 2nd place behind those are a pair of Kenneth Cole Clean Cut boots that I picked up with a very steep discount.

    Depends on your real world then, I guess.

    I live in Toronto. It's all about the eyetalian shoes here. Chicks love the rubber soled black prada and the gucci.

    The suede belgraves were probably my most worn shoes this year cause they're so versatile but I seem to be the only one that cares...

    My most complimented pair of shoes are a pair of squarish-toed Kenneth Cole monkstraps with block heels and a press stud closure on the straps. Seriously.

    Sad as it is, that's true in America. Europeans (rightly) call square-toed KC shoes "those ugly American" shoes.

    Sri, are those chili? Interesting shoes.
    Lolwut? Where are the numbers in this thread? Your sample size is what, like, 5?
    This thread is over 100 posts, with lots of submissions. Count again. The landslide is almost as decisive as Reagan getting reelected. Brogue. Additional points for texture or rare color (chestnut, walnut, cognac, etc) Considering the tiny % of shoes sold that are brogue, and the vast majority of replies to this thread indicating brogue as the outright winner, this is the most statistically significant data ever presented on SF. I am ordering the Cheaney's tomorrow. Boot + Brogue + Pebble = Homerun

    Apparently that is the "Italian look." The silhouette is a bit drapey and unstructured for me, though.

    What you are missing, Reevolving, is that the same shoes that get the most compliments are also the ones that attract the most dislike.

    The more shoes (or anything else) stand out from the norm, the more they will generate strong opinions.

    I suppose this may be why 'club' wear is wilder then business wear. In business wear, generating a mild positive impression from almost everyone is desirable. If you're heading out to pick up women, you're better off turning off 80% of women but having 20% think you're awesome.

    I get your point, shoes that draw attention are polarizing, but I don't think you're going to be "turning off" most women with cheaney brogue boots. You'd certainly attract a different sort of person were you wearing keds or pumas.

    I don't consider brogue boots that polarizing! I suppose some people don't like them.

    Ktrp, I agree, but the beauty of brogues is that they work in the office and on weekends.
