Just bought these for £35. Look and fit great

show



and got a WIZARD grey cardigan to wear with them but the seller cancelled it claiming it was "broke". It was pretty clearly because I got it for cheap so I sent a suitably snide message back

the back of the sole on one of my Chuck Taylors is flopping around when I walk, so I think it's time for new shoes. do Doc Marten boots go well with skinny jeans? I'm usually not a big fan of pants tucked into boots. and do they look normal in other situations? like they'll probably be my summer shoes too, so I may look a bit weird wearing them around my beach town in shorts.

also be straight, are they really worth £105?

EDIT - also, do people in the US wear the big classic looking Docs? I can't remember ever seeing anyone wear them

So I while back I made this post looking for shoes and I settled on a few, which I listed in THIS post.

well.

I never ended up getting anything. Today I went walking around the mall and went into an Aldo store, and I found a few things that I really liked and I need some input. I'm mainly looking for boots but I'm open to anything.

Ladson
Wilham
Caefca
Alexi
Upwood
Abbatiello


Out of these, I really liked Alexi and Wilham, but out of the original post, I liked the following:

hyde
petworth

Thoughts? I suppose one of the pluses for going with Aldo is that it I wouldn't have to order anything so I know exactly what I'm getting. The thing that is bothering me is that I actually have a pair of Aldo shoes and they are horribly uncomfortable, but I'm still optimistic because they are very snug so I have no doubt that has a lot to do with it. Does anyone have any experience with their shoes?

They're all two-tone, but it comes in three different colors. That's the white, but there's a black and a violet as well. I'd probably end up getting black if I get it at all.

that was a good edit, Hydra150

I don't get that vibe at all from it. If anything, it seems pretty Oriental.

maybe

i think it would look ok with a pair of jeans and some boots as a sort of smart casual look

if you think you like it and would feel confident wearing it then i say go for it

I think I'll try it. It's going to be an amazon flash deal, so worst case scenario I lose like 20 bucks. Worst worse case scenario, I send it back.

I'm just trying to venture into different styles uno

i sort of like it and i think some could definitely pull it off but it also gives off a obnoxious posh fellow that's trying to steal the protagonist's girl vibe

bought a pair of black DM 1460s on Tuesday, been wearing them everyday since. absolutely love them, and I haven't even had a break-in period, they already feel perfect. I put insoles in them though, so maybe that helped.

the only bad thing is I really need my hair to grow back faster now because I look well suedehead wearing them
