    as far as length and width - yes
    for volume, feels like they have a slightly flat/low toecap, and a high instep, which makes my heel tend to slip out a bit.

    i have a medium-high arch. those with shallower arch may not find these appropriate.

    What are your thoughts on wearing suede balmorals with denim?

    I think you can pull it off in suede but I dislike calfskin/cordovan bals with denim for the most part.

    Am I wrong to think suede bals should stick to suits and less dressier days involving sport coats (for example)?

    *note: Grensons above look awesome with denim actually.


    Actually the shoe in question is a quarter brogue adelaide oxford. However, suede is inherently causal because of it's texture and therefore should be worn with anything casual from sport coats and slacks to jeans. I would not however wear calfskin oxfords with jeans, unless the intent of the look is to be anti-establishment, or that you only own one pair of shoes.

    I'm having made something like that (not bespoke). Will wear them with anything from jeans to suits.

    I'm glad someone agrees with me as I've had the argument before where they argue any oxford is no good with jeans. I love the look though!
