    I happily rotate between my Clarks Desert Treks, Crockett & Jones, Allen Edmonds etc. Of course they are more casual but why don't they get the love they deserve?

    That's not true. Theya re not ugly in the least. In fact they are objectively and universally beautiful. Admit it. Now!

    They're no uglier than Wallabies. I think I'd rather wear Dr. Martins.

    Wait, you smell that?
    What kind of love are you looking for? And the shoes look like hospital shoes. Something an orderly would wear. Taking care of the mentally challenged.

    They certainly are no replacement for C&Js.

    Because they're hideous, classic or not.

    So are Wallabees.

    Big fan of the Wallabies here. I wouldn't rate the shoes in the OP as cool as Wallabies, though.

    seems to me they actually get quite a lot of love around here. This is like those stupid "underrated hot chicks" threads where people claim nobody appreciates Monica Bellucci or Jennifer Connelly, only less visually interesting.

    Very ugly. I'm sure they're a decent enough shoe, but they're not something I would wear.

    How can you say that black leather Clarks Desert Treks are less pleasing on the eyes than Monica or Jennifer?

    What a maladjusted things to say! One could start a shoe porn thread for these shoes alone.

    And why are so many of the posters on this thread from Toronto? Very suspicious. I hope Honest Eds is keeping you in warm foot wear this holiday season!

    No shoe is as ugly as the Wallabies, not even these.

    Ugly and the crepe soles (if they are the same as the wallabee) are disgusting after a few walks...lint, hair, grime all sorts of nasty things stick to them.
