Pretty or Ugly?

I saw this pair of shoes a week ago in the window at the legendary British shoe store, Church’s, on 63rd Street. I was running late for a doctor’s appointment, but these caught my eye and I did a double-take as I rounded the corner onto 63rd off of Madison Avenue.  These are Church’s Burwood Brogues.  Not generally my kind of shoe – I typically favor a heel of at least the 3″ variety –  but these did make my heart go pitter-patter.  They’d look great with a pair of jeggings or black leggings, don’t you think?  I know people usually think of Church’s as a stuffy shoe store for the discerning gentleman, and it is, but they make beautiful shoes for women too. Each pair of Church’s shoes takes 8-10 weeks to manufacture.  Believe it or not, each pair of Church’s shoes are still hand made in their historic Northampton factory. What do you think? Would you wear them?  (Oh by the way, the come in black suede with silver too).  Pretty or Ugly?
