    I was perusing Skoak's facebook gallery of EB MTOs.

    I came across this very odd duck.

    I can't figure out what on earth this would go with. Is it a loafer, a spat shoe, formal, casual? What were they thinking?

    I'd be interested in your thoughts. And no, I am not considering it, just curious about this oddity.

    Mid-grey suit maybe?

    The natural edge dressing is what catches my eye as an inconsistent detail. I would change it to black.

    A bit too dandy for me.

    I can candidly state that these hold no appeal for me beyond mere curiosity.

    I've never seen dress shoes with buttons before.

    I actually have a pair of double monks in this color scheme that I wear with confidence - dark navy with dark grey suede. So for me its not the color scheme but it's the style of this shoe. Between the buttons and the height of the upper vamp it becomes too contrived and ornamental. Women's shoes are designed like this frequently but for a woman in pumps and a short dress the intent is to draw attention to the shoes and the legs. I think the button boot is about as edgy as you should go with this EB design. These shoes definitely are not for me - I don't mind people looking at my shoes but I don't want them staring.

    It seems like the 21st century child of a 20th century boardroom shoe, and a 15th century royal court pump.

    They do seem a bit anachronistic.

    I don't any boots with button closures, though I may consider them in the future given some of the fine examples I've seen here. I think with shoes it's a bit much.

    What kind of hybrid anomaly is that?
