Could you post a picture.. or a link to a picture, farfisa23?? I bought these in black leather at the Hugo Boss store in BH (FYI: their clothing sucks). Zenga, Gucci and Prada makes some really nice and similar styled shoes too. I have had some similar Pradas in the past too. Once a year, new sneaker shoes. http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/17907863.html That said: I work in the auto industry and if I showed up in a pair of Tods driving mocs with the nubs on the sole I would get laughed at so hard my head would spin. My manliness would also get called into question and then people would point. When I go to conventions I wear them with with slacks and sweater and tie, where as my Varvartos Chucks hurt and still look too casual for usage. I've tried, ended up with swollen ankles. They may be too Euro for some people here, but my feet say thank you after a long day and I like them much more than any AE sneaker shoes. Have you tired some Clark Wallabies in black leather, those are comfy, casual and look great with everything. http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/6432159/c/72.html I have and love these a lot. Not everything can be 888-lasted EGs in Antiqued Chestnut.
