Worn out Shoes, gives character? Or that’s not cute?

I have been noticing as I wander around NYC, whether it be on the subway or walking through the city, people are rocking worn out shoes. I myself for not exactly fashion reasons if you know what I mean. I am holding out for funds so I can go extreme shoe shopping which is greatly needed and deserved. However people around the city are rocking that style for every different type you can think of…
My question to my fellow bloggers, followers, fans, and fashionistas alike, do you like this look? Or is it simply worn out? (No pun intended).
I look forward to any comments and feedback.
Thanks everyone 🙂
