Jules, good reinforcement of the comment that the Seibels are neither a sporty sneaker nor a dressy loafer. Kind of a sneaker with an identity crisis I remember Buster Brown's although did not wear them myself.

lisa p - dead right just not very fashiony and modern!

Angie those shoes look perfect for you in the pink or the white.

Jenni NZ, good point about wanting sneakers to look "refined".

Suz, interesting how shoes can feel so different in style even though they look very similar in photos. You're absolutely right that you do need to listen to your feelings. And yes sometime you just need shoes that work (like your example of the fiflops that are good for your PF) even if the look is not quite perfect.
