"My wife and I were sitting in a coffee shop one morning when she mentioned that she liked the shoes on the guy sitting next to us. I asked him what they were, he said "John Varvatos Hipster Chukas, got them at Nordstrom for $200." I liked them too so, ever since, I've been checking DSW to see if they had them...no luck (so far). So when they got in the Hipster Oxford for a great price, I had to jump. Great shoes; light, comfortable (no break-in period), stylish. Now I just have to wear them for a while to get them looking good and worn-in...that won't be a problem!"
