    Unusual shoes that you actually wear

    I thought this might be a fun thread concept. There are plenty of unusual shoes out there - some good and some terrible. We've all seen the unusual shoes on eBay, but I'm more interested in seeing the curiosities in everyone's collections. Remember, this thread is for unusual shoes that YOU actually own AND wear.

    I'll go ahead and kick it off. These are my Allen Edmonds Bagleys in "chili" that I'm wearing today. They were discontinued years ago are are relatively obscure to begin with. The angle isn't great, but here's a mental image... They've got a silhouette similar to chukka boots, a brass buckle like single monk straps, double oak soles, and tread on the bottom.




    Now, let's see what you all have got! Good or bad, we 're not judging (publicly).

              I had some Yoox store credit and these shoes (for some reason?!) were priced extra cheap, so I went ahead and got them. I figured it saved me money since the credit wasn't enough to buy much and would have just been an excuse to buy something more expensive.

              They seem silly to me, but in a good way. I guess kilty is kind of trendy now, though? I'm not by them right now, so here is the original pic from the Yoox listing. I will wear them tomorrow in honor of this thread:

                    I'll post my own pics if I can ever be bothered, but:

                      LOL!! That was my first thought too! They aren't horrible, and I look forward to seeing those fit pics tomorrow...

                        I look forward to it as well, thankfully you didn't spend much. If you can remove the kiltie (kilt?) then I think they'd be fine casual shoes. Regardless, if you pull it off I'll be very impressed.

                        Mikey, I like all of them. Personally I'd like to see how you wear the Diors because I'm really not liking how they're worn in the pic and they're probably my least favorite of the three. Lanvins are my favorite among the bunch, they look awesome. Just curious, how much do they retail for?

                          I don't have any unusual shoes for work or casual wear, but my current basketball shoes are pretty unique.
