    Rate these boots/ trainers!

    So yeah, im god awful at choosing new gear and i'd like to hear the denizens of MMO champ call me out on these.

    Im dropping 45 quid on these, not too much - but i hope they last for a decent amount of time. Im going to order them at the conclusion of this thread!



    P.S, i may link more of the stuff im considering to buy... But turn this into a link your own stuff thread to rate if you please - to the mods, i couldnt really find a thread to address this.

    Rate them for what? They make poor boots and poor trainers, not practical as either.

    Looks wise I would say no, the top is OK but the white sole ruins it.

    Funnily enough i did exactly that, dressed to the best. Looked pretty trim... turned up to said job interview (Was last year, at a small place selling watches) the guy asked if i'd been to a funeral!

    Was a stinger.

    Then it sounds like a very unclassy place, a suit should be welcome at any job interview.

    The driver of the garbage truck who picks up the dumpster from my building wears a suit. He said to me "You go to work in an office and wear a suit, well this is my office." Very nice guy.

    4/10.. decent casual shoes, but the white will just get dirty.

    Yeah, white with brown is terrible. Maybe if it was black instead?
