    Can't they be cool and loud?  In the best way :)

    I pondered these for myself too... and ultimately decided they're a bit too much.

    Marianna, have you tried them on?
  • DonnaF replied 5 years ago
    I passed on to DD for comfort reasons a pair of calf hair DV booties with a similar pattern and vibe.  The strong pattern takes some outfits up a notch or two, but is horrible meh with others.  Soft colors and gray don't work terribly well, but of course strong graphics and vibrant colors are great.

    I think they're super cool.

    They look worth a try. I like the bit of color on them.

    They are cool but I feel they are a little much.  Then again, you have much more height than me and probably would not be overwhelmed by them as I might.

    I would much prefer them without the red details. The zebra calf hair alone would have been super cool!

    These would be so cool with a black tux.

    I could see them with white jeans/pants, even a white skirt.  Or black jeans/pants/skirt.  You definitely have the height to pull off a statement flat like this.  

    In my experience, shoes like these are fun but hard to style.    I have some white and black hair calf spotted wedge oxfords that remind me of these.  I do wear them, but not much.  When I do, they make a big statement and people will stop to comment.

    It depends on how many other shoes you have. I can see them really lifting a really simple outfit.

    Cool.
  • Jjsloane replied 5 years ago
    Kinda cool, but I agree that the red stripe on the sole might be a tad over the top. I can't find a good fit with Sperry's myself. I'm like a 10 1/4 and they don't even make many in 10.5 and I find them a tad narrow. Sad because I'd love some boat shoes.

    I think they are very cool, but I wouldn't have worn them myself because I need something calmer to not feel overwhelmed. You, on the other hand, have the height and a strong, stylish appearance that could support this look.

    Your replying agree they are worth trying.  You have the height which I think "balances" such a statement piece.  I could see them working with neutral outfits very well.

    Both!! 

    I think they'd be too much for some people and not for others. Sveta, you have the drama to pull them off -- if you can imagine styling them. If you can, I say go for it! They look really comfortable. I would even try them myself and I am much shorter than you. But I'm holding out for a spectator style instead.

    Thanks for your opinions, ladies. I think I am not sure if they will fit into my style  - hence the question. If I have the opportunity to order them I may try them - just for fun.
