    1. No. The lets-go-clubbing clown shoe is bulbous and circular. They are made for people who have heard square toe is not a thing anymore, but have no taste themselves. They makes short men look like they have huge feet. This is not that.

    2. Probably... I would. But, I wear size 12, so any plain toe looks long on me. Black is not as bad.

    Edit: one thing is visual delineation between the laces and the toe is absent in these. That might make your legs look longer than otherwise. That's not necessarily bad.

    Also, do these happen to be 12 or even 11.5? If you don't like them...

    Haha, I didn't know they had caught on to the square toe not being a thing anymore! Shame. So, this may be a naive question, bought are plain toes supposed to be elongated? I almost went with the AE Carlyle but they're out if my price range for a shoe that will see little use, but In the stock photo they don't appear too long... but neither did these.

    Plain toes look elongated because there is nothing to break up the shape. If you put them down next to a pair with a medallion on the toe and measured, they'd be exactly the same, but the plain toe would look longer.

    These definitely have about an inch + of elongation in the toe. Past the point of where my foot stops fitting.

    What defines small shoulders? I definitely didn't feel restricted.

    Do they fit?

    Here is an example of the same size shoes where the plain toe looks longer.



    (I realize the plain toes there are a bit meh, but, in my defense, I paid $40 new for them.)

    I believe they fit. I don't thinkbi could size down. There's just a lot of extra room from where my foot fits (and seems to fit well) and the end of the actually shoe.

    They loom twice as long. I never realized this before....

    It's sort of like the whole "beltless" thing. Without a belt, a suit looks more like one long piece of material. With a belt, it is visually demarcated. Shorten men look great with no breaks, taller men look too tall. I would speculate the same goes with feet except it would depend on leg proportions since the legs are going to look longer without a visual break in the shoe, not the whole body.

    I figure this is one of those things that is not so much style-fu as it is having seen it and recognized it.

    [QUOTE=ianmichaelray;230494]Do they fit?

    This is about where my foot ends. Please tell me if this fit looks large, but if I size down I don't know how I would get my foot would fit in the front.

    Right, that makes sense. I have relatively long legs, and the shoes look big from my point of view. But when I look in a mirrow it all looks proportionate.
