This is the fugly shoe that J. Crew keeps peddling as the hip sneaker for men who like to wear primary colors and no socks. No, this is the shoe your sinewy, gray-haired uncle wears when he runs on weekends. It's the sneaker the kid in khaki pants (hiked up to his armpits) wears as he taps out the beat during his Oboe solo. I think J. Crew shoppers who want to be sockless and casual should opt for leather boat shoes instead.
