Per my new career, I have started getting into men’s fashion. I am by no means an expert, but I’m learning. I figure, when I’m wearing something I particularly like or dislike, I plan to share that on here. I’m more than open to input on this stuff as, like I said, I’m learning.
Today I’m wearing Johnston & Murphy suede wingtips. I really like these shoes. The are good looking, very versatile, have sturdy soles and are pretty comfortable. They also have good arch support. If you walk a lot, but need to be well dressed, these are the shoes for you. They go very well with jeans, chinos and slacks. They can be worn with a suit in an informal setting where its okay to dress a suit down. However, under most circumstances, these shoes aren’t right for a suit.
While I like them, I don’t love them. They are suede so they stain somewhat easily and shoe trees are a necessity as they are relatively soft/flimsy. Also, they breathe only moderately. Even with foot powder I find myself having to take them off at least once or twice during the day.
Overall, I highly recommend these shoes, especially if you are on a limited budget as they go with most outfits and can dress up or dress down in them.
Likes: versatile, can be worn on a wide variety of occasions, extremely good looking, soles seem extremely well made, comfortable.
Dislikes: don’t breathe well, suede is sort of flimsy.
