That is a very informative and helpful read, but now I can't find anywhere on the J&M website how they construct thier shoe.
I still don't understand i though J&M was a very good shoe

Just make sure you do some research on how different brands / lasts fit. thanks for the suggestion, but suede is going to get a little to roughed up for...

I though i would look for a pair of A&E on ebay and wear them every third day with these. It's a catholic high school, the dress code is solid oxford button down w/ tie, and solid color chinos. A pennyloafer or oxford seems like the main option.
what about these? http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...&Parent_Id=522
It's not really a tight budget, I was just looking to spend that much.. Two Pairs sounds like a better idea, and $150 each is still do-able. Although if I do decide to spend less on a second pair, would I be able to get away with a pair bough at a store like macy's or other semi-decent department store? I want to get at least one pair of nice shoes, as mishon named, though.
I attend a private high school and the dress code calls for shoes. Some that would look good with a shirt and tie and khakis. Basically I am looking for a decent pair of shoes in Black, Brown, or Burgundy which will last and look good through a school year of rushing through hallways 8 periods a day. I can afford anything under or at $150. Basically pointing me in the direction of a store which could meet these requirements would be appreciated.
Has anyone ever read this book, or know anything about it?
