I know this thread is long past dead, but thought I would throw my two cents in. While Mezlan shoes do not offer the quality of Alden or Allen Edmonds shoes (i.e. stitching to a real welt and cork bedding), I still believe they offer good value for money. I would also never pay full price and stay away from some of the "pimp" shoes they offer.
