/fa/ help pls
i need to buy new shoes, but kind of tired of wearing sneakers all the time..
need something i can wear to work but also hanging out with friends@bar on the weekend. so nothing too fancy.. also black or white only!
i've only owned one pair of dress shoes my whole life, everything else has been sneakers, so i really have no idea what is good and what's shit..
something like pic related? that one is pretty ugly though lol. idk.. advice please
just get some black derbies
i will look for this brand in stores, prefer to buy irl and not online so i can try them on first.
if i go to some shoe stores in the mall, what should i look for that determines a nice shoe from a cheap/bad shoe? is it basically 'you get what you pay for' ?
like i say in OP, all i've ever bought my whole life is running shoes.. not really familiar with what's /fa/ and what's not..
No. Buy a black penny loafer, preferably with less shine (like the one attached). Very easy to dress down for casual wear, and easily able to dress up for semi-formal.
Yay or nay? I have a pair of brown chukkas, and two pairs of black boots. I don't know if I should go with a more brown style, or this burgundy. The burgundy is a really cool (and more original) style IMO.
I wrote the shoe section on tuxbell. Maybe it can be of some use to you
In general, cost will be reflective of quality, yes.
When that other anon says to get sperry's he probably means to get boat shoes. You sure as hell shouldn't get derbies from sperry.
Those don't look very good.
Thanks! Checking out that link now and some of the recommendations..
i'm probably going to go to The Bay, or see if there's any other shoe stores in the mall here (probably nothing good, though)
also how about Aldo? i remember a few years ago they were known as really shitty quality, but i got a buddy who says they're good now.. is that true or they still shit?
