Baffin’s PUR Gobi Men Shoe: Ideal Casualwear?
It’s difficult to find a casual shoe that has enough stylistic versatility to be considered just as good for going to pick up groceries as it is in a business-casual setting. But that’s exactly what Baffin’s Pure Gobi Men Shoe accomplishes with a simple and classic look that’s bound to leave anyone staring at it jealous. Not that anyone should really be staring at your feet.
The beauty of the Gobi Men’s shoe is that it’s simple – there are no extra frills or un-necessities that typically plague shoes of this kind and make them unbuyable. The leather is smooth and folded over itself only as many times as is necessary in order to create something that will stay on your foot. And the shoe’s so easy to slip on that it can definitely be regarded as the most casual of casual shoes; in essence, it’s nearly a slip-on.
That’s not to say that the Gobi Men’s isn’t versatile enough to suit a more ambitious wardrobe. In fact, its leather laces help assert its value in formal settings, and the three available classic colors are vivid yet subtle enough to make just about any type of outfit come together. If you’re looking for a casual shoe that’s able to deliver comfort and versatility on a daily basis, look no further than the Gobi Men shoe.
At a price of around $150, the shoe is of course not exactly a slip-on. But it will last longer than your slip-on and it will be able to pair with more outfits than your slip-on. The net result? A shoe that’s as comfortable as it looks – for once. If that’s what you’re looking for in a casual shoe that can pull off just about any look, Baffin’s Pure Gobi Men shoe is where your feet need to be.
