    honestly it look quite impressive , but I wonder when and for what can I wear it? and with what?

    i take it that it is not suitable for formal or work since its too tacky and over the top but not like that matter since i am not a white collar worker

    the design is inspired from Louis Vuitton's Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Show

    It's considered an eyesore.

    Cannot wait for Louis Vuitton to release their Toilet Paper collection with their logo plastered all over it.

    Louis Vuitton has a lot of great shoes, but I wouldn't label that one. If you do have your heart set on it, I see it as an evening shoe and would be great at high-faluting parties.

    You do realize that 9 out of 10 folks here think Allen Edmonds is about as fashionable as a shoe gets, so your query is going to spark controversy, criticism, and outrage.

    I'd wear them when going out clubbing. With that much obvious LV branding on them, you'll have to pry the ladies off you with a crowbar.

    You go to the wrong clubs. Those shoes are a hideous abomination. If you must wear them, I would restrict it strictly to in-the-house where no one can see you, maybe only in bed - or even better, keep them as toilet shoes and use them to keep your feet away from that cold tiled floor. Then flush when done.

    No, I just aim for the low hanging fruit. [​IMG]

    They'll also keep your feet dry. Perhaps that is the highest and best use of these shoes after all?

    I don't think Hermes man is a troll. He's too consistent in his posts and on his horrendous brandwhore blog.

    Are you some kind of prince? Judging by the photos on your blog, you are super wealthy. I don't see how a blue collar worker could be that wealthy, so you must be an heir or a prince, or something.

    The brandwhore blog may be one of the funniest things I have ever read though. And this guy really makes my day just a little bit better.

    Totally missed his blog. I throw myself on my sword.

    The blog is a calamity.

    Uuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmm........ High class sleaze.

    Good for your "Mr. Mercerized" personae, but not for an interview --- unless one of the glamour industries, of course.

    I would actually look down on someone for wearing those.

    According to Hermes Man's blog, he just went on a $7,000 spree:

    Imagine what kind of a shoe rotation this guy could assemble if he actually had taste. He would give Aportnoy a run for his money.

    In so many words... Those shoes say, "hey, just in case you didn't see my other tasteless expensive shit to be noticed by, heres some more."

    What I don't get is why you keep asking these ridiculous questions on styleforum. 1st - Justin Bieber look 2nd - Ugly ass Comme des Garcons t-shirt to look like Kanye West 3rd - The Cape thing 4th - These ugly ass Louis Vuitton shoes. Hermes Man, this is simply not the forum to be asking about these items... It baffles me that you haven't figured this out yet. To answer your question bluntly: Those shoes should not be worn...period. Not for any occasion. They should thrown in the garbage...right now.
