Swears are ****ing amazing.
With regard to ALDO boots, I have owned a pair for about 8 months, now, worn them probably 4-5 times a week and they're still rockin'. I have a friend who literally wears boots EVERY DAY, 7 days a week. He has two pair of ALDO boots that he has worn for two years, everyday, and he's still rockin' them. Here's the point: If you want to pay 500 dollars for boots, you can buy boots that you'll keep for ten years. As we all know, you get what you pay for. ALDO boots range from 100-150 bucks. Good looking and decent quality for those of us who don't have massive budgets. But that's just my experience.
two persons opinion
I'm really digging these ones...clean, simple, elegant.
i would say, the combination of dry black coated slim jim with timberland dark brown are simply the best;-);-);-);-)
wow, i like these shoes, but they are sold out, do anyone know where else i can buy them?
My Husband wears these with his coated jim's. I love Zeha!
How bout this pair...
...I found them on the Steve Madden website. They're pretty similar to the pair above! I think a brown leather would be nice against Nudies' orange stitching.
Aldo shoes are pure garbage.
Dress shoes/boots should be an investment, you're going to get what you pay for...so don't be afraid to cough up a decent amount of money. I don't see any point in shelling out $150 for a pair of shoes or boots that A) probably look like shit and B) will more than likely fall apart before you're done with them.
There is nothing worse than cheap dress footwear.
I agree. Hand made hand made hand made!
Swear and schmoove are very nice. Also the Paul Smith if you have higher budget
i would recommend going vintage. i have a pair of barker handcrafted brogues, and they are worth every penny. just don't go with pointy dress shoes. they're the worst.
Which pair are you talking about?
I prefer something like this for a "dress-look" with slim jeans:
(Not specially this pair, but you've got the idea of it)
I've got a goodyear welted pair like the shoes above in black. Perfect fit for my TFDGC if I want a dressy look.
Hudson make great, modern mens shoes. The worst thing, imo, is seeing smart shoes with really thick soles, looks so old fashioned and just doesnt go with jeans.
This post was from some time back. However, just wondering what kind of dress shoes match well with tapered pants/jeans.
Augusta boots__ hand-sewn.
this is an interesting thread, i've found it virtually impossible to match shoes of any kind with tapered fits, much less dress shoes. my advice here is just to go with the least bulky shoe you can find, simply because the narrow openings won't cover the tops of anything but the smallest shoes, at least in my experience. if you're feeling adventurous though, i suppose you could go the complete other direction and get yourself a big-arse pair of cowboy that go up halfway up your shin and cover the taper. this is very much a woman's trick, though, and i think doing it would cross that very fine line between acceptable and downright ridiculous.
truth be told, though, anyone wearing slim jeans probably realises they're already walking this fine line, so if you think you can do 80's hair-metal...
hmmm- any thoughts on boots worn with the hem cuffed at the top? i just got a pair of brown nubuck 8-eye dr martens which i doubt will see any active service with my slim-fit jeans`, but they did get me to thinking about rolling the hem up so the whole boot is exposed. they're far too bulky to be tucked under the hem, but rolling up might be a little too romper-stomper. any ideas?
something like this seems good for wearing with slim jeans.
