    Well, I don't change into them to take Muni either.

    But I agree with iamatt's original assessment. There's something about the design and construction that's just a bit off and I think they did used to be better. My wife had a pair of Connolly driving shoes several years ago that were pretty nice. Don't know if those are still around.

    I'm talking about these. They've been around forever.

    I know. They change the shape a bit every year. If you don't believe me, call a Tod's shop. The currently stocked shoes are really square.

    9.5 us. They have to be new. I'm not touching any used Tods.

    I've got a pair of Sutor driving shoes. Do you mind this shape? [​IMG]

    No. Those are great. Where did you get them?

    Not drivers, but I like these N.D.C. unlined loafers. I can't stand the rubber nubs on the heel of most drivers anyway.

    Those are pretty cool. They look comfy.

    Don't have to. Square toes is their signature look. I bought this squared toe penny loafer almost ten years ago.

    I got them off Yoox about six months ago. I tossed the box, so I don't have the model name.
