I wouldn't recommend buying something from Cole Haan or J&M because the quality isn't very high. Allen Edmonds are nice, and since those happen to be the style you're looking for and are on sale within your budget, I'd say it's a no-brainer.
I don't remember. Google "cobbler" and "the name of your city" and call them up. Those are Allen Edmonds, right? So maybe you got a deal and only paid $100 on them, but they're pretty nice shoes and it'd be a shame to let them disintegrate too quickly. The cost-benefit analysis is up to you.
I just don't think it's practical to do it yourself. It's not so expensive to have a professional put flush metal toe taps on your shoes. I have them on a couple of my pairs, and they're always a bit slippery for a few weeks (can't really be helped) until the metal gets suitably scratched up. They work well. A cobbler sold me on the leather version once, but they came off quite easily. I'm happier enduring the slight slippiness of metal in the beginning, for the...

When you order at 5:15 PM and expect it to arrive at 10:30 AM the next day... you're asking for trouble. Murphy's law, you know?...
You're just doing your best to make this really hard for yourself. I tried to type something helpful for you but I got nothing.
I dunno man, the thing is, when you're trying your hardest to pull off an inbetween look, its those details that make the difference. If I ignore the actual clothes you're wearing, then yes conceptually this is somewhat acceptable.Also, does this go without saying?:: You are putting in more effort than 90% of the population. Your clothes fit and you are thinking about how to look good.You'd be better off if you weren't trying to mix these looks. I'm not sure what line you...
The recommendations were most interesting. \_(ツ)_/ Come on... what is the audience here at SF? What is missing here??? Hello???
