Other brands to consider
Tod's or Hogan
I wear or have worn all of the above brands. Above average materials. Lifespan is similar to lesser priced sneakers (especially for the driving shoe variants)
Trunk Show at James Leonard
I bought a pair Mykita from them earlier this year. The Brooklyn shop has always offered great service. Not cheap, but all their products are mid-range to high-end (e.g. iC Berlin, Mykita, Dita, Cutler & Gross, etc with Zeiss lenses).
I'm leaving in a little over a month. So far, my rough itinerary includes 3 days in Madrid --> Cordoba for 2 days --> Sevilla x3days with 1 day devoted to an Alhambra tour --> return to Madrid for return flight.
Does anyone have suggestions for lodging, places to eat, can't miss sights, etc? I was in Madrid around 5ish years ago. I covered a few of main sights but missed seeing Guernica. I'm an amateur photographer and plan on shooting a lot of Moorish architecture...
