Alden #907 Straight Tip Bal Calfskin

Everyone makes a straight tip Oxford, so why choose Alden?

smfdoc

Pros: Classic style with fit and finish details that take it up a notch

Cons: Cost and limited opportunity to try on in a brick and mortar store

The straight tip black calf Oxford is a classic style offered by nearly every men's dress shoe shoe manufacturer. A cap toe oxford is a closed lacing shoe with a straight stitch cap, with the quarters sewn under the vamp and fastens together by laces over the tongue, which is sewn onto the vamp. This means they have a very similar look, but a wide variation on price. The nearly identical...

Vans Footwear The Barbour Classic Slip On Sneaker,10.5,Green

“ Review of Vans x Barbour Beacon waxed nylon and leather classic slip-on shoes.   Bought these about 3 months ago from Barneys New York (though I see them for much less on eBay now), and have worn them with and without socks nearly every day since then.  Wore them on a 900-mile round trip drive to and from Florida, which is rough on the right heel of any shoe, and these show...” --TheNeedMachine

Clark Street Casual Shoes

“   I am yet to miss with Allen Edmonds dress shoes.  Every single one I've purchased has fit perfectly and presented no problems.  Allen Edmonds casual shoes on the other hand, have been problematic.  I'm yet to experience one without having some kind of issue.  To be clear, this review is only covering my experience with the natural chromexcel color.   I will...” --Lobster33

Quoddy True Penny Loafer

Quoddy True Penny Loafer

“The Quoddy True Penny Loafer fits true to size.  For reference, I wear a 7D in Alden's Barrie last.  After breaking in these loafers, I added a tongue pad to tighten up the vamp (size large from Amazon).  I don't think I could have sized down to a 6.5D since my toes would touch the end of the loafer and a wider shoe would definitely mean walking out of the loafer.  The width...” --ppith

Allen Edmonds Lasalle Dress Shoes

Allen Edmonds Lasalle Dress Shoes

“The Lasalle is a superbly designed dress shoe that can be worn with almost anything, although I don't prefer to wear this one as a casual shoe.   The classic, conservative split-toe design (similar to the Wilbert), caught my eye.  Similar to the popular Delay, the Lasalle is slightly different in design.  The Lasalle is simply a Delray that was re-designed by Nordstrom, but also...” --Lobster33

J. Crew Rugged Classic Boots by Red Wing

J. Crew Rugged Classic Boots by Red Wing

“These boots, made for J. Crew and listed as Red Wing 4183, are a fine example of a job well done. They break in easily and then fit like a glove. The leather ages beautifully and applying a bit of shoe wax improves appearance and durability of the surface. With proper care and attention as well as resoling when necessary, these boots should last for years to come.” --_cameosis_

Loake Strand

Loake Strand

“STYLE Loake Strand is a semi brogue Adelaide. Adelaide brogues are a variant of oxfords with broguing in a "U" shape around the laces and it does not intersect any other seams on the vamp, also called an "U Throat" oxford. Normally, an oxford shoe has two separate pieces of leather for the vamp and the quarter that are sewed together. An Adelaide brogue has just one piece of leather for the...” --wurger

“Well, at first, when i saw them in the Chippewa website i thought: "MAN!... i will look like Frankenstein┬┤s monster in those!!....".... But as time passed, i slowly started to love them.

“I kind of wish they came in standard leather sole with English heal. Fun while they lasted. That said if I found a pair on sale for no more than half the price, I would buy them again. Taupe color is the best. ” --yucaseca

Florsheim Vincent Wingtip Oxford

Florsheim Vincent Wingtip Oxford

“The Florsheim Vincent, like its cousin the Veblen, is one of many Florsheim long wings. It appears to be closing out as a style and this still allows some bargains at less than $100. It is a standard lower priced foreign made shoe that is comparable to many other Florsheim styles. As an occasional shoe it is fine for the person who has a limited shoe budget but wants to add a long wing to their...” --smfdoc
