Wingtip Sneakers?

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone knows where to find this kind of shoe that I've been seeing all over, and was struck by its near ubiquity in Paris last week... I can't seem to find many good photos, but I think the best description is a kind of wingtip brogued "sneaker". I hope that rings a bell. Is there a better name for them to use when searching for them? EDIT: I found a great photo of what I'm looking for, actually from searching the styleforum site: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...3/DSC_0129.jpg Any idea where to find something like this? Pricing?

I have a pair from Paul Smith from several seasons ago. Always get compliments from them.

Paul Smith has some brogue but very limited wingtips.
Puma has some as well.

I don't think you'll find the Gola strides with any sort of decent stock much anymore. That said I own a pair or two of these and they're not bad.

The brown gola strides aren't as ridiculous looking in person as you'd think. My midsoles are dirty and stuff so it looks more normal too. I don't think i could do the black ones, but they're real comfy, and chicks love them. They're probably my least favorite shoes at the moment, but everytime i wear them someone remarks how they really like them.


theexistentialist- What size are you? If you don't mind used shoes, i may be willing to sell mine if i look through my closet and don't find a good outfit to wear them with.
