Thought we could do with a shoes/boot thread, as don't often see much discussion about them. At the moment im looking for some but nothing has really caught my eye. Anyone seen anything nice recently?

I think swears are ok, they look great with a certain look and you have to be skinny, bit played out tho.

I've got swears, a pair of pinted brogues from office, visvims and those desert boots but really was looking to up my shoe game but just don't know where to start or what I like.

Those Hudson things were nice the other day, but not sure where I can cop online?

Also like those budda boots that i've seen, in fact im tempted by some like motorcyle type boots too that we have in the shop. Any nice boots around?

I'd love to go for one of those high boots you see people wearing, even with skinnies, but I don't think I've got the attitude to pull them off. Needs the right kind of build I reckon.

There is a nice Dior pair on the online store called Elegant Derby,

I need a new pair, liking these but they are pretty pricey

Im after a pair of toned down swears for work, been looking at their different styles like ant's or jimmy's.

Someone on here was selling them, DW I think, I really liked the shape but didn't like tone of the brown.

What are they Mob?

Yeah Mob, I thought they were hard to get hold of.

Is it only me or does anyone else not like heels at the moment on mens shoes? Everything seems to have them.
