An great shoe that accomplishes its mission

smfdoc

Pros: Good looking, tough, readily available, weather resistant casual PTB

Cons: Lack of available stores for personal sizing

The Alden brown CXL plain toe blucher, style #9432S, is a stock Alden offering that can be purchased at a number of retailers, including the shoemart, Alden of San Francisco and others. The brief summary of the shoe from The Shoemart is accurate and to the point:   "Unsurpassed for breathable comfort and long wear, it assumes over time the contours of your foot shape giving a truly...

Allen Edmonds Men's Overlord Oxford, Brown, 8 D US

“   A friend of mine told me several times that he thought I should pick up a pair of Overlord shoes.  I admit that looking at the online pictures, I wasn't really that interested.  That was until I saw a pair in person for the first time.  There's just something about seeing this clever design in person that made me realize I had to own one.   For a casual shoe,...” --Lobster33

“   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

Alden #907 Straight Tip Bal Calfskin

Alden #907 Straight Tip Bal Calfskin

“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...” --smfdoc

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

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

“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

“I don't know if ostriches and turtles are natural predators, or if ostriches and turtles are ever in the same location, besides the zoo, at the same time, but I do know that these are the ultimate shoe for fighting crime after radioactive ooze transforms you into amphibian form.   Master Splinter is strict when it comes to a proper uniform, so you won't get any demerits with these when...” --sprout2
