Personally not a big fan of heavily branded shoes or driving shoes, the latter because they wear out quickly. Wrt the former, I make an exception for Gucci bits, but only if they are the classic 1953. I'd never wear something with green and red webbing or little Gs.


There’s a nice sale on them at Nordstrom Anniversary Sale right now


Honestly, this screams frat boy to me. You'd wear these with a Patagonia vest, Croakie sunglasses, Vineyard Vines shirt, and a short Yeti tumbler.


This also describes a large chunk of Bay Area VC people, to be fair.

Hey grandpa!


They look cheap 😬

What are you going to wear these with? Hopefully not work clothes. Way too casual

With jeans those would be fine. I’ve always appreciated a nice pair of suede drivers. Maybe something like this

For casual wear, i.e. with jeans, they are fine. They don't light the world on fire, but are a decent pair of looking shoes that OP can wear. What's the price point on them ?

They’re fine. Nothing memorable tho, just passable.

As someone mentioned above the Nordstrom anniversary sale is going on now. Get the Nordstrom brand driver’s first $50. A pair of drivers will wear out in a year, so is crazy to spend $400 on a pair


Check out Mezlan for some nicd loafers. Amazon and their online warehouse store has some amazing discounted styles

But are they loafers? Look like driving slippers to me. If so unless they are either 1. Botega, 2. Gucci or 3. Tods then hard pass

I used to claim 2k every month for WIFI in TCS for 4 months under straight through employee referral and it by passed my supervisors approval too but a mail used to go to supervisor.
He questioned me a lot after 4 months as if he is paying 2k from his own pocket and I stopped.
Worst policy here. 410 wifi reimbursement we get in TCS lol that gets added into our salary every month.
A normal phone recharge costs more than that and TCS still stuck in its cheap mentality of cost saving.
