Hey folks,

What do you guys think of these shoes for wear with jeans?
http://www.shoebuy.com/sb/s.jsp?Style=169743

I'm looking to buy a pair of shoes this weekend, and since shoebuy's having their 20% off labor day coupon (LABORDAY20, and also $10 off for new members, I think), I thought I'd grab it from them.

I usually wear jeans and long sleeve shirts with the sleeves rolled up or a polo shirt. Add leather jacket during fall/spring or parka during winter. I got the Loake chelseas on J's advice and love those, but I need another pair of shoes to go with this look. I'm not really into sneakers, though. What do you think?

The sole is a bit funky for me. I'd say pass, these look like shoes you will tire of quickly and wonder what you were thinking.

If you have the Loake chelseas (a classic shoe in a classic shape) and like them why not go for something more 'classic' in a captoe or brogue?

Can I have funky and classic?
But seriously, I want something with little more detail than a boring captoe. I'm trying to stay away from the Eccos and Borns that are popping up all over the malls. I like brogues/wingtips but wouldn't they be too dressy for my attire? I'd be fine wearing those in NYC, but in Fargo, ND, I'm afraid they would seem a bit over the top unless I'm wearing a suit.
