Burnt Out

While being sick as a dog (some sort of allergies/bad cold mix which is my excuse for not posting in a week), my Minnetonka driving mocs came in the mail from Minnetonka. So far, they're comfortable, although the tread is very squeaky in my dorm's halls. I got them a half size small so they fit tight, which was a good call as they don't slide off my heel. I'll have to wear them a few more days before I can recommend them.

Edit: Also, I believe these are the shoes that Jake Davis recently endorsed on his blog. The man knows what's up. Quoddys are beautiful and all (I'm sure they last considerably longer than Minnetonkas), but with my habit of misplacing things, I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing a casual shoe that expensive.

Parting thoughts: I found a LL Bean corduroy shirt in a box of my clothes of winter wear which I didn't know I had. Isn't it great when things like that happen?


  1. Not a huge fan of these... sorry my friend. Not trying to pry, but what college do you go to?.. because when you go to a college like mine that lacks any fashion sense at all,. shoes like these, high-cropped trousers and shawl-collars are impossible to come by... unless of course you visit my closet. lol

  2. I go to Juniata College, a small liberal arts college in central PA. I think these look great on my feet, although I'm keeping the socks on for the first couple wears, I'm not sure how these will look sockless. Maybe in the spring when they are well worn in?
