Do these brogues look like Cornish pasties?

I've got wide feet and been searching for brogues that fit and are comfortable to walk in.
These are Birkenstocks and seem comfortable but not sure if too round. I have a pair of clarks hamble oaks which I've worn lots but they've never been really comfortable.
I'm not sure if this is the replacement pair, they aren't cheap either. Do they look like Cornish pasties to you?

No, they don't look like cornish pasties. I like a round toe but they are not overly round. These are what I think of as cornish pasty shoes. (Though in their way they are fine.) I've got a pair of hamble oaks and though they're fine for a couple of hours I wouldn't want to walk in them all day. Those birkenstock ones look nice.

No. They look like a sophisticated French dark chocolate covered pastry.

They're very nice.

Not doing the laces up properly makes me feel a bit anxious about your personal safety though.

No, somehow Cornish pasty is not the first thing that comes to mind.

Look up Clarks Funny Dream shoes - they're Cornish Pasty shoes.

I bought a pair for when I walked the dog and I waterproofed them but even the lightest dew seeped through the stitched seams causing the dye to run and I had to bleach my toes to get rid of the black!

Thank you for your comments.
Don't worry, I'll make sure I do the laces up properly smile.
Having to bleach your black toes doesn't sound like fun shock.
I'll try them on with different trousers and skirts to see if they look alright but good to know they aren't too bad.

Please may I ask where you bought them? I like the look of Birkenstock shoes.

They are called Laramie low brogues and I got them from Amazon smile

A colleague had similar on today with dark tights and mustard colored dress.
Looked fab.

They're lovely. They actually look very sweet - hope you don't mind me saying that?
