    I love suede shoes. But tobacco or cinnamon can look a little dark with some summer clothing. I've tried white bucks on and off again since the 80's and always felt they were "a little too much". I ran across these Alden suede shoes on the Ben Silver web site. They seem to be the ideal color and style for spring and summer.

    Im actually considering a pair of suede chukkas the same color. I know nothing about chukkas - are they appropriate for summer?

    Very much so... Clarks are the best bang for the buck

    The thing that I don't like about some chukkas is their big, round toe. Not all chukkas are created equal.

    When I see classic white bucks like these ^^^^ I love the look. Just not on me for some reason. These are my current favorites for summer. The Alden would make a nice compliment for something a bit more dressy. [​IMG]
