    ^ Those look good lufty. I was considering the brown ones last year. Are the soles actually welted or just glued on?

    What do you wear these with? I have them and still haven't worn them.

    Jeans, stone color khakis, tan khakis, and linen.
    For the most part dressing these down -so alot of jeans..

    I am surprised that they are welted.

    wow! now that is a stark contrast of the sole ,why on earth would you want to have a very dark sole with white upper - i think this shoe needs to be alot lighter whether crepe or micro

    I had a similar first impression - don't like the sole.

    On what occasion would you need a dressy summer suede shoe?? Surely these are not appropriate for business. I feel these shoes are just for fun...

    I have similar pair of shoes. However, mine are made by Santoni & have leather soles. They're very comfortable to wear.

    Agreed with you, I would prefer to have it in a natural leather sole.
