    If you were those "Saucy" shoes to anything other than a formal event you are going to look like a spaz. Part of fashion is understanding the setting you are in.

        First off, if you’re going to pretend you’ve worked in an office before, don’t type in a way that makes it obvious you’re like 19.
        Second, the shoes on the right are way too formal for anything that isn’t explicitly a formal event. I’m so sorry you really really really want to wear them, but you’re going to look like a alpham dork wearing monkstraps in a non-formal setting.

          A shoe isn’t formal only because its made out of leather and has a higher quality. I have only one pair of sneakers for sports purposes only, nearly everywhere else I wear "formal dress shoes" or nice boots. You are a hecking moron.

            If you are a pleb, yes.

            I’m not the guy you all replied to, but:
            You guys must all either (1) live in a social bubble in which everyone wears business-casual or (2) come from rich families and don’t interact with normal people. None of the "saucy" shoes in the OP are casual by modern standards, even in big cities. I’m not saying that loafers are SUPER FORMAL, but they certainly aren’t casual to the majority of people nowadays.

            They aren’t nessecarily "casual" like a sneaker would be, but they aren’t formal. You’ll see guys wearing them to bars in more affluent areas. I saw a guy wearing gucci horsebit loafers to a picnic recently.

          I’m not feeling keen on the white soules dress shoes recently, but shut the heck up you incomprehensible gay. We are a decade past menswear numale lumberjack gentlemen revival, any shoe is as formal as you want it to be.

      That doesn’t mean you should wear those "snazzy" Frankenstein monstrosities on the left. Just wear full on sneakers instead.

      1000% correct

      These are fine for business casual and above

    I’m ok with “dress sneakers” as long as they have a simple design and are worn with a casual outfit. They need to be sneakers first and foremost. The problem comes when people treat them like actual dress shoes. Broguing and/or wingtips with a white sneaker sole is a travesty, and wearing any kind of dress sneaker with a suit or even just a jacket and tie is not okay. Every former NFL player-turned analyst now wears a blue suit and dress sneakers during broadcasts and it looks so laughably bad.

    if you’re gonna wear sneakers just wear sneakers
    no point trying to find some "middle ground" with the aesthetic appeal of neither extreme.
    at least proper sneakers with a suit feel more deliberate and less shackled by a circlejerk of "sharp" dressed tools

      All degenerate shoes designed by and for rich stupids from the 19th century who want to destroy their toes and foot. Wear shoes that have a broad toe box, so that your toes and feet can move naturally, rather than being squished in unnatural positions and destroying your entire body’s biomechanics.

          >duck feet
          That’s how your feet are supposed to look like, you domesticated goy of the shoe hebrew. Your toes help you in gripping balancing and absorbing shock by spreading out and supporting your entire body’s weight. When you squish your toes together even in "well-fitting" shoes, they pretty much become useless. So you start walking, running even standing and shifting in place unnaturally to compensate for the lost function of your toes. Your ankles and calves especially become weak and stiff. Even more when you wear degenerate shoes with raised heals.

          Most shoes are not ergonomically designed to compliment your foot’s natural function and mechanism, because modern shoes are plebwear ripped off from the design of stupid fancy shoes meant for rich hecks and elite. They were designed more for style than function for privileged, sheltered people who never did a day’s worth of physical work in their entire life.

            I don’t climb trees like an ape so I don’t need my feet to look like that. Also, is that pic how barefoot shills think shoes fit?? Because the example in the left would be an idiot with shoes too small.

          • Anonymous says:

            You might not climb trees but you will always need to (or should be able to) squat, jump, stand on your toes, or do pushups barefoot. If you can’t do that, then you are literally subhuman, because you can’t do basic human tasks. Shoe footers with crooked, mangled toes (and bunions) can’t do any of those properly. And akshully, you are an ape. All humans are taxonomically apes.

    can anyone recommend casual shoes for light rain? I work in IT and wear slim chinos and buttoned shirt most of the time
    need something that won’t get my feet soaked during my commute to the office
    are chelsea boots good for that? I’m always worried they’ll get water in through the elastic part

    These “snazzy” shoes are disgusting mongrels. Literally make me ill. They solve no problem, they have no style, they literally hurt my eyes. If your feet hurt, don’t be stupid AND a b***h. Proper fitting dress shoes are not actually that uncomfortable, but if you must, wear actual sneakers with some style. If you want less formal, wear a loafer. If you don’t want to be stuffy, wear a moc. There are so many better choices than this frankenheck of a shoe. The fact that AE and others hawk this shit now just shows how far we’ve fallen sartorially. People have no eye and no idea.

    But you do you. Just don’t be surprised when someone goes Bush 41 all over them.

    To me right is snazzy and neither of these are saucy
    You’re gonna have to go harder than this to hit the saucy threshold

    i completely agree.
    but i live in one of the highest rainfall parts of the world, leather soled shoes are completely impractical and borderline dangerous to wear.
    sneakers aren’t appropriate for every setting.
    how much "snazzy" is acceptable in the pursuit of not slipping and breaking my hip at age 30?
    are the kind that look normal and just have a thin matching color rubber outsole underneath the leather midsole stack acceptable given this context, or cringe?
