They're horrible. It's not the mid-nineties anymore.
nothing beats a good brogue
Otherwise they just say "UTTER COCK".
im wearing brogues right now! :(
I'm talking about men. Women's shoes are simply a complete mystery. :D
why can women wear really school-boyish, cloggy peds and get away with it? All my trainers have to look just so otherwise I feel like a total dorkmeister.
Pointy deck shoes? I saw them in a shop whenever they first came out and thought they'll never catch on. Lo and behold, a year down the line, they're everywhere. People are idiots. With silly footwear.
Option A) Chinos that fall to the correct length cover the sock area mostly.
Option B) 3/4 length trousers or shorts means you don't wear socks or else you wear socks in your school tie colour.
I can confirm such shoes are fucking comfortable, though.
that is amazing. I wish I had a school tie. SO I COULD HANG MYSELF!
My girlfriend wears them with leggings and a dress too.
I...I'm really lost for words.
I mean they are simply there for the middle-aged middle classes to wear. I'm looking forward to getting a pair of my own circa 2020, around the same time I get to wear a shirt with a sweatshirt on top and slacks. :D
i've seen them look nice on people. but when you see them on their own they mainly just look fucking awful.
People wear these? Really?!
It'll be another 6-8 months before this craze makes it up north. Time enough to make other arrangements.
I got a horrifying image of thousands of pairs of deck shoes marching up the motorway. Shudder
Or burn the entire stock of Schuu.
I work with boats though, so i'm allowed, right?
how closely do you work with these 'boats'? Do you touch them with your hands?
your feet need to be securely on the boat decks for it to count.
This is not to say that I don't wear them down the pub like a trendy cock too, with my Wayfarer style glasses that are not prescription and merely have a clear lens, rendering them a bit useless. Girls lahv it tho'
the mid nineties
i remember wearing these, chinos and a polo/rugby shirt. i fucking sucked
