    Foo help me pick new shoes

    Ok. I need some casual shoes. I'm a size 7 so they are tough to come by. I like shoes that are unique and a little stylish. I've narrowed my next pair down to one of the following. FWIW, they are all John Fluevog and all come in my size.

    #1


    #2


    #3


    Thanks

    Rob

    I like #3, but #2 would go with just about everything. And I'm a fan of slip-ons. My vote is for #2.

    Door #1.

    My girlfriend is telling me that she thinks the first pair look like Ronald McDonald's job interview shoes.

    #1 and #3 look like you need 3 buddies with matching shirts to join you at the lanes.

    #2 looks like an old man's slipper.

    (I'm just not a Fleuvog fan. I'm more of an Allen Edmonds guy.)

    I picked number one. I'm a fan of brown leather. The laces do make them unique.

    Oh don't worry my 2 pairs of dress shoes are AE. I'm just not a fan of their casual line.

    I agree. But then again look at his username..

    Number 2 is what I would say is nice.

    Those are some bold choices in shoes. I'm having a hard time relating to them. I think to give us a better idea of which shoe is right for you, we need some detailed info on your personality. Also, what types of pants ... if any ... would you wear with the shoes.

    Check out Birkenstock shoes one day. They are unique and stylish in their own way but I think sheer functionality is Birkenstock's greatest feature. Fabulous support and no more squashed toes. Birkenstocks also come in a complete range of sizes and Euro 40 which is most likely your size is common.

    #3 They have a bit of character to them. #2 looks like something a grandpa would wear to the bingo hall. #1 is my second choice.

    Kenneth Cole has some decent looking stuff, but not much in the funky/bold way. (You're right about the AE casuals. Nothing much decent looking there.)
    I'd wear Bruno Magli casuals if I had $600 to drop on a pair of kicks.
