    Kabaccha Shoes Kickstarter

    I found about Kabaccha Shoes on Kickstarter. I am thinking of picking up a pair and am interested if anyone has any thoughts or more information on the brand.

    It's not really in line with the Dappered aesthetic (the soles), and I'd love to hear more about the constructions before I even thought of endorsing it. It seems like another shoe company just looking to take my money with a mediocre product.

    also, first post on Feb 2015, pretty suspicious

      Those would be cool if you enjoy LSD.

        Frankly I like the age-old boring black dress shoe. But the price point seems reasonable for a blake-welted, ??quality, non-leather soled shoe. They don't seem to be overpromising too hard (except maybe on the 'subtle' part, lord these are anything but) at around $150-180. If you like the Suit Supply shoe aesthetic but don't want to pay the $300-400 I guess these are an option. Reminds me of some of the Florsheim Duckie Brown collection I guess. These aren't work-friendly shoes for serious work environments, and honestly you have no clue about the level of product or customer service you'll receive with any kickstarter purchase, which is part of what always throws me off (you know, along with "buzzword buzzword buzzword SAVINGS CUT OUT THE MIDDLEMAN buzzword") from any kickstarter purchase.

          I tend not to buy clothes that would violate sumptry laws, so no ermine capes or red heeled shoes.

          I mean this as an earnest warning to people who think these shoes are modern anti-establishment. However, people will think you are rich and tasteless, showing off you are rich and tasteless. Remember what happened when the Pope wore red shoes.

            I could see them being successful in some kind of rave/hipster way. The soles alone look like they would shine quite well under a black light.

              Wow. Those soles. 805 people out there who like really like to peacock through their shoes. I wouldn't wear these, even if they were made with the skin of unicorns and stitched with gold. If I did, I feel like I would probably be wearing a cape...or a track suit with gold chains speaking with an eastern euro accent...

              And this is just the silliest photo. *edit* Won't let me link to the photo for some reason...anyways...it's the dude holding the shoe in his mouth with his teeth. Ugh.

                I remember that colorful sole thing having a moment (or, trying to) back in 2011 or 2012, when Mark McNairy sold a bunch of wingtips and loafers and such with this type of loud sole. I seem to recall a few spreads in GQ featuring such things, but then they started regularly appearing on Gilt and other flash sale sites pretty quickly, which led me to believe the fever was breaking. Apparently, the style lives on in some places. I don't have nice things to say here, so I'm going to stop.

                  thanks for the comments. I'm holding off for now.
