    Sorry to mislead.. I wasn't actually close to doing that... they are unwearable. I just can't put my finger on why the aesthetic is so off.

    ^^^This, plus they look awful to me because the proportions of the toe area to the height looks off, and the color is too dark.

    This is more what I was looking for. They have two features I am lacking in my shoe collection - chocolate suede and a dainite sole. But they are, in fact, MoFugly. [​IMG]

    Bingo. Too close to the hiking boot aesthetic.

    Odd combination of hiking boot with a more formal boot.

    They are ugly and nobody else liked them either - that's why BB had to drop them to 1/3 retail.
