It’s perhaps the plainest most nondescript shoe in the store but I like it. It’s industrial, workman like and no nonsense, an “Ugly Betty” if you will. A shoe to wear with a uniform perhaps but slip in a pair of dress laces and shine these babies up and the goose becomes a swan, well at least a shinier goose.
But that’s the point not all shoes need to be all things. This is a pair to wear casually with traditional khakis, or skinny jeans. It is as blank a canvas as you can imagine. So don’t discount simplicity, and like all shoes they always look best on the foot.
