The two-tone leather looks great but I'm not a fan of the double-layer sole.

Reminds me of sale-rack Timberland deck shoes.

Torn between the Bostons and Zurichs, can get the Bostons for £30 cheaper plus another £10er off if you sign up to the newsletter, from Birkenstock directly.

Paraboot Coraux. Somewhere between a penny loafer and a boat shoe. Less heavy (and expensive) than most of the Paraboot range. Made in Spain rather than France. More like £150 than £100 I think but worth it. Look bad in most photos I've seen but I liked them a lot irl.

Hell yeah. But like anything, depends on how you put it together and the swag to pull off.

Think it could work with the right suit jacket - linen maybe.

These APC - orthopaedic or cool?



Anyone tried them on IRL to comment on quality / sizing?
