Damn, I've always wanted a pair of Jeremy Scotts. Just for the statement factor.

So here is the pick, as i am just venturing into the shoe accessory world i want get some thoughts. these are by no means high end.... 120 on sale for 89 but they were comfortable and i like the orange soles. And not to be cliche but the other week i saw a great tie that would compliment the orange.

So any other thoughts or suggestions would be great!



not a bad look. Most of the really nice shoes from allen edmunds or even cole haan can be replicated at the low 100's, or below 100's on sale like you have found. they wont last 15 years with care and sole replacement etc like the expensive ones, but if you are like me i dont usually want my shoes to last that long, i get bored with some after a few years at most, haha. for the most part the shoes at the lower price will just use lower grade leather, cheaper lining material or if its under $100 regular price probably synthetic leather, and they sole is probably just cemented on instead of true welt construction. but its achieving the 'look' quite accurately. just try not to buy super cheap, haha, well known, fair priced brands are usually good employers to footwear designers vs cheap bargain brands :wink:

taht being said i do have some really nice traditionally made shoes, although i dont usually have to pay for them :P


I always recommend these to friends when they're looking for a nice pair of dress shoes.
Nice shape, decent upper and color. For $60 you'd be hard pressed to find a better shoe.

I am really fond of The North Face's Back To Berkley collection. These casual hikers are a really technical boot, but get lots of looks like a sneaker. They thing I like most is the fact that they're really lightweight, but provide unreal support and protection. I have an insulated pair and wouldn't hesitate to snatch up as many more as I can.

I did a review up on my website here if anyone is interested.. http://milkywilky.com/post/47720081114/tnfboot

There was a massive sale on Wolverine 1000 miles a few days ago. So I picked up a couple of pairs.

Trying to decide between wingtips or not. Leaning towards plain toe and sticking with dress shoes for wings.

Both! Love the wingtips, but plain toe is super classy.


Broke these puppies out and hands down the best "summer" shoe I have owned...Ultra light, breathable, and not bad looking.
