        • [MENTION=13220]chiconice[/MENTION] Interesting take on the boots. As someone who is over 40, I'm comfortable wearing the desert boots. Same goes for the Stan Smiths. There aren't really any shoes that I'm not comfortable wearing at the moment. That could change of course - all things are relative. With winter just around the corner though, my days of wearing white shoes are coming to an end.

            Thanks! Had to size down to a 36S cuz the 38S was too wide across the shoulders. Luckily I've been losing more weight and getting more fit.

              Although that was many moons ago; this weekend found a nice fall day in Gettysburg accented by some Brooks Shaker Heights and a little JCF love for game pye at the Farnsworth and ciders at Reid's.

I think these apply only to younger than 30 and tall men. I get the same feeling with my white stan smith shoes.

                I think that CDBs are good for anyone. My dad was amused when I started wearing mine, because he had his own back in the 60s/70s (he opted for suede). As someone who is older than your 'acceptable' range, I think the key is finding the right times to wear them. IMO, as one gets older, they will become more and more casual attire shoes. I think we're all more accepting of a college age / 20s guy using somewhat casual shoes to dress up; as you age, it appears a little more juvenile to do so, and thus less acceptable.

                I've still got plenty of use from my CDBs as I'm venturing into my 30s. They're my comfortable cooler weather shoes (assuming no rain/snow) with jeans or other casual attire. I rarely wear them to the office these days on casual days, as NYC grime makes the crepe look like crap quickly.

                I do however, get similar feelings to you with regard to stans (or really any white sneaker). I've found that going with canvas (Supergas) vs. leather helps me to find ways to wear them, but I do feel like it's a bit more of a costume feel for me and my current style. That's not to say I'm sneaker averse; I love wearing my retro Jordans 1s (again, super casual, takes the right outfit, etc.).

                All this being said, you shouldn't feel like you "have to" wear certain styles. If it isn't working for you, go your own way!

                            I'm just following along on this because I want to like CDBs, but every time I try them on, they look bulbous and massive when I look down at my feet, and I can't pull the trigger.

                            For canvas sneakers, I still love white low top chucks because they're not a massive field of empty white space.
                            Don’t call what your wearing an outfit. Don’t ever say your car is broke.
                            Don’t sing with a fake British accent. Don’t act like your family’s a joke.
