I saw some shoes I liked at the Johnston & Murphy. Are these do-able: http://www.johnstonmurphy.com/catalo...al&PLOID=44772
Gotcha. I suppose they're "doable" but they look too old fashioned. Since you are in your teens, I'd get something with a bit more pizzazz to it.
Maybe so. It's just the look of those shoes that rubbed me the wrong way. I'd rather go with some Martegani's from Ron Rider a la these: http://cgi.ebay.com/Romano-Martegani...QQcmdZViewItem
In any case, there are plenty of options in your price range. Just make sure you do some research on how different brands / lasts fit.
