My go-to interview shoe has always been my Alden 9015 (Cordovan punch cap bal). Here's a pic of another poster's 9015's (on the right): Here's a pic from The Alden Shop If you prefer black, the 9016 is the black shell cordovan equivalent. However, you mentioned you're buying your "first dress shoes" and that you "want to get something that's good"; I think, in the long run, you would be happier with the burgundy color over the black. It's much more...

I wouldn't wear them with dress pants. That isn't to say they can't be. But, they seem much better suited for a denim look than dress pants. Neiman's description says "Finish your easygoing look with this polished boot.". That's the way I see them.

Doesn't the zipper get in the way as the zipper on the pants I tried on is fairly long. Think of it this way--from front to back, the seam forms a "U". Shortening the rise is essentially cutting off a portion of the top of the "U". This is done when the pants fit well through the crotch/hips, but go...
