So here is the pick, as i am just venturing into the shoe accessory world i want get some thoughts. these are by no means high end.... 120 on sale for 89 but they were comfortable and i like the orange soles. And not to be cliche but the other week i saw a great tie that would compliment the orange.
So any other thoughts or suggestions would be great!
not a bad look. Most of the really nice shoes from allen edmunds or even cole haan can be replicated at the low 100's, or below 100's on sale like you have found. they wont last 15 years with care and sole replacement etc like the expensive ones, but if you are like me i dont usually want my shoes to last that long, i get bored with some after a few years at most, haha. for the most part the shoes at the lower price will just use lower grade leather, cheaper lining material or if its under $100 regular price probably synthetic leather, and they sole is probably just cemented on instead of true welt construction. but its achieving the 'look' quite accurately. just try not to buy super cheap, haha, well known, fair priced brands are usually good employers to footwear designers vs cheap bargain brands
taht being said i do have some really nice traditionally made shoes, although i dont usually have to pay for them
