    Exactly. I have a shoe i can wear everyday and to anything that a dressy shoe is warranted. However in the warm weather I will go back to my (hated by almost everyone) stand by of hiking sandals and socks because it's fucking comfy too.

    Those shoes are horrendous!

    They are a few things, but stylish certainly isn't one of them.

    I would kill myself before being seen wearing them.

    Whoever came up with the idea needs to quit designing shoes.

    $200 for a pair of mail-order shoes that have yet to be manufactured?!

    I think you guys should check them out ayyyyy ;D

    tl;dr I want this thing to make it past the cutoff so I get my pair.

    But really, they look pretty sweet.
    Those shoes are neither stylish nor innovative.

    Lots of traditional shoe makers in England produce shoes that have a dress style upper, with a comfortable sole, and I would be shocked if there aren't numerous US companies that do the same.

    $285/£180 will buy a pair of decent pair of shoes from a well established company, and not some gimmick from a no name maker out sourcing in Italy.

    The guy is looking for backing money this is a way for a company with limited resources to get financial backing for a start up company. Well that and they don't have to repay the money you give. It's so people can say oh yeah I helped get that company off the ground now look at them.
    Although I think their shoes look absolutely hideous.

    I would prefer Dexter or Tiger Leather Shoe over these. These shoes are too much winter'sh for Mediterranean Climate.

    People thinking of sneakers as "stylish" shoes... I've seen people wear them to weddings. Most horrible.

    Wear what you love, aye, but make some fucking sense. Don't go around wearing checkers with lines, or Nike sneakers and Armani suits.

    PS: The OT shoes look horrible and should stay dead.

    Barker, Loake, Grenson all make shoes in that price range, and all would be far better quality. Most of the major fashion houses that sell own brand shoes get them made by the traditional Northampton shoemakers.

    I personally like Gaziano Girling, but they're 'slightly' more expensive http://www.gazianogirling.com/

    I have these particular shoes in Black. Very very happy, more comfortable than most sneakers, and I didn't break the bank for them.

    Every time you have a question that begins with "Why?" that is about what other people prefer to do with their own goddamn time, come back here, and reread the first row of this post. That will ALWAYS be the answer to your question. Have a nice day.

    Charity then, but if it pays off the owner gets rich and the poor do not benefit? Instead I get the chance to buy some average shoes at best.

    Gay men too, but those shoes are meager by gay standards. To be fair, get some military dress shoes, polish them until a mirror shine and never look bad.

    Nonsense, Brown can be very fetching, sometimes more so than back.

    Not a big fan, and there are already companies that make stylish "work" shoes that are comfortable and good for your feet. I found out that comfortable alone isn't always so good.

    http://www.ecco.com/ I use shops not an online store - because sizes in all shoe brands can be a little subjective and buying expensive shoes and comfort seems to demand I make the effort to try the things on

    I buy most of my work shoes from here after wearing "stylish" shoes gave me tendonitis (pain in achilles heels). These are good for your feet, very comfortable, and suitable for work.

    is it better to wear stylish shoes without shocks
