So I've been changing my style lately, and part of that change is getting away from wearing sneakers all the time.. I have recently become enamored with vintage wing tips. You can score VERY nice leather soled wing tips pretty cheap if you look in the right places. I love old wing tips it's like wearing leather combat boots but with ALOT more style. This is what happens when an old punk starts dressing nicer.
Also, if you want to add a bit more personal style to your wing tips colored laces pop out like crazy and give them a not so formal feeling.
