What shoes do you wear on a date?

I've had no need for suits or formal shoes for a long time and so have non. I've just had casual relationships and so never really dressed up for dates.

But now I'm in a serious relationship and I want to take her somewhere nice. I'm not wearing a suit, but i should probably have some nicer shoes than sneakers.

I'm kind of poor so $150 is about the limit. Someone recommended black desert boots but supposedly its a meme.

tl;dr whats a not too expensive nice shoe to dress up for a date?
>>
Desert boots are a meme but they look nice to normies who don't know any better
>>
Desert boots are classic and look great. Esp. Finished leather ones like in the pic
>>
>>12662569

She would probably count as a normie. But I'm not trying to get a $150 meme just to wear every so often on a date. Is there something similarly clean?
>>
>>12662590
Desert Boots are ideal for your situation, honestly
>>
>>12662562

Desert boots are fine. I like the beeswax ones.
>>
Desert boots or wingtips
>>
imo if ur skinny get chelseas
if u don't have skeletor legs get deserts
i think chelseas are easier to dress up so they'd be more versatile
just don't be that guy who wears a sweatshirt + distressed lightwash jeans with them

Can I throw in a curve ball?

Wallabies or weavers
>>
>>12662569
>>12662589
>>12662653
>>12662663
>>12662698

So even though they're a meme, they're the best choice? That makes things easier.

>>12662700

I'll never wear distressed clothing of any kind.

>>12662768

I was also considering the desert london which seem to be just shoe versions of desert boots
>>
Just get some bl├╝chers in a natural brown color, John Lobb makes nice entry-level ones.
>>
>>12662885
There's desert boots with a rubber sole for like $80. They're the bushacre version
>>
>>12662885
They're not a meme /fa/'s just being retarded like always.
You're a fool if you take fashion advice from /fa/
>>
>>
>>12662562
Bro, if you like Desert Boots, cop them. fuck all of that "this and that is a meme". Jesus, have some kind of a brain to make decisions for yourself man
>>
>>12662562
Chelsea boots would be my go to
>>
Get the black suede desert boots over the leather. The black suede looks great and is surprisingly versatile.
Save up and get some nice black leather derbies at a later date.

BRUH nice choice with the desert boot but the black makes you look like an emofag. try the beeswax! it's a great dress up look as well as a perfect casual look. basically a "look good but pretend you're not trying"
>>
>>12664209
how do they size?

If they're Clark's, size down. They run a little big.
Source: I have Clark's
>>
>>12664384
Go a full size down. I'm a 10.5 in Vans and wear 9.5 for desert boots.
>>
Get some gucci loafers and zara chinos with a tight white or floral shirt, button it up and add a necklace if you like
>>
>>12664438
Shirt goes into pants and have a nice belt like saint laurent western or Hermes
>>
bet you won't
>>
>>12664437
Then he should go down a size and a half. Vans run half a size big in most models
>>
>>12664444
Wear it on one foot and this could be a good icebreaker
>"How'd you break your ankle anon?"
>>
Clarks Desert Trek are a good choice, bought mine for about 85 but I've just checked and they're on sale for 55 at some places. They age nicely too
>>
>>12662910
he lives in Seattle though, so they probably had some water
>>
>>12664449

I've always disliked that seam running down the middle.
>>
>>12662562
am I the only one who considers the concept of "dating" as an attribute of insecure person? I mean I have nothing against dating, but sitting there thinking "damn, I have a date today. what should I wear?" isn't /fa to me. dunno. sounds like lack of self confidence
>>
>>12665033
It has little to do with self confidence, it's more about being respectful of your SO and showing them that you care enough about them to not look like shit. Or not look how you usually do.

have you ever been on a date, anon?
>>
>>12665033
do you automatically dress for the situation? or do you follow the same style for every activity anon?

and if you don't, why do you put thought in what you're gonna wear? because that's where you'll find the answer as to why people dress up for dates
>>
>>12665033
>>12665151
>>12665173

This is kind of my point. I've always been pretty creative with the odd date and it's never formal or fancy. And usually I try to sleep with them on the first date, then we don't really date after that. Just drink and fuck.

But I'm getting older and this one is pretty special. She knows I usually do what I want, but i know she wants me to dress like a normie and take her to a fancy dinner. I can at least do that for her.
>>
>>12665033
Women are a meme anyway.

This is the only answer. Everyone else is meme'ing. I wear these bad boys every day and the girls need to wear a rain coat for how wet they get
