It's getting harder to find shoes that no one has and still look good

if you don't have much money. I wouldn't call J. Shoes "cheap," but they are definitely unique. I think this brand goes well with my personal style and hope to own a pair of J. Shoes in the near future; I'm waiting for further discounts.

Mercer $136.00 $67.28

I really like these mainly because of the plimsoll shape. The mix of the croc trimming and leather to me seems very fashion forward, which is always a good thing. I do wish the leather was in another color though (white maybe).

Dune $129.99
I have a pair of Doc Martens that look like these. Lately, I find that I tend to go for shoes that come in this shape. I like the rugged rubber on the bottom; it's like Simple shoes. I also like the shoelaces because they look "historic."

Ohio $131.00 $67.28
I like that these shoes have a contrast, but it's not stark. They're a bit on the grungy side, which is always a plus for me. You know what, I might just get these.

Leo Ruched Boots $190.00 $142.50
This is the first time I've seen a men's ruched boot, and I like what I see. Well, I'm not crazy about the decorative perforations. I love the color though.

Wander Lace Oxfords $120.00 $90.00
This is a very interesting take on the classic Converse All-Stars. Somehow though, the heel has made it a little too mature. I personally wouldn't wear it because I don't look right in Converse All-Stars.
