[Lookbook 09.04.2013] Wingtips are red, outfit is brown
Yes, that's a red shoe you see in the photo. You can say that I'm bored with the usual black and brown, so why not go red?
The color red, especially on shoes, may be a bit too much for most guys but I do have a bit of flair for flare in me sometimes. Besides, the last pope, Benedict XVI was often seen wearing red shoes as well.
When I first saw it in a store, it was instant attraction. I got excited that it wasn't a loafer or any other casual shoe, which meant that I could wear them to work. While the shoe design may be classic brogue, I love that it's in quite an unconventional color.
Of course the next challenge was what to wear them with. I know I can easily pair these shoes with jeans or something but I wanted to go with the usual office attire, and brown proved perfect. Today I went for a combination of light and dark shades. Black and gray would be nice too, I guess.
So what do you think, yay or nay?
