Maybe just not ideal.

Dark brown calf may be a bit more versatile but the Strands in walnut are gorgeous and (imo) look great with navy. Not so sure about charcoal.

I say keep unless there is something wrong with them. With this site (and most other flash sale sites) the inventory is pretty usually limited.

Email the AE Shoe Bank and they can send you a list of what they...
So I just ordered the Florsheim Elwood in Brown Suede on MyHabit (Amazon's version of Gilt) for $70 shipped. They are the same as http://tinyurl.com/3j5xcad but in brown suede.

You're a much stronger-willed man than I. I have trouble going a week without finding something to spend money on (clothing-related, of course.) We'll see how this month goes.
