    Wait... I super confused now... are we talking about the fit I posted today? There's a close-up of the boots there:

    I had a pair of VSW that looked almost exactly like them, same color brown. No hate, just sayin'. I would've chosen boots, but I see where you're going. Maybe it's just the color.

    EDIT: closeup pic reveals a totally different shoe. My bad.

    I really like those.

    Carry on...

    Are you the same Turkish tourist that posted a picture a few pages back?


    I didn't think it was possible for me to dislike those shoes any more than I did, but you went and proved me wrong.

    Holy f*ck. See, they came off looking like canvas sneakers on my monitor. Whoa.

    I like them, I think chucks or something similar would have worked as well. I don't think I will ever buy a pair of boots with the chunky white sole though. Just not my thing.

    Back to everybody bitching at each other.

    Yeah, well...no matter how often you dress in clean and modernist lines, this attitude is ugly and pedestrian. Children know this.

    I was just going to say- who's hating on the shoes? Then- oh, it's Rambo. Gotta respect the Rambo.

    There's no hate for the shoes here, I was just querying their use in that fit. After a certain time in SF all the things people have are nice things (listening Liam?)

    Then the question becomes how to put them together. And what vision you have putting the pieces together.

    All of which can be lost in not so great photos. Gdl makes great closeups; the full bodies are at least better than Manton's. (Here the faint praise there, g?) Maybe a NOBD/UC/NYR level full body image would have made it clear the shoes work great- maybe. The shoes as isolated entities look good to me.

    @GDL Those shoes are hypnotizing. Looks like they're floating on marshmallows.

    As it turns out, I do look better than I would have predicted earlier.
