Take it from a guy who use to wear cheap shoes, save your money and wait until (1) you find a sale and pick up a really good pair or (2) save for next time to buy that really good pair whose sale you just missed. That's how I'm doing it...just me thinking out loud though. If you really need them now, go with your gut.
$70 is a tough price point, but i'd advise against those. Clarks started making most of BR's shoes about two years ago and they uniformly look and wear like crap. I could certainly recommend stuff at multiples of that, but I'd suggest looking at J. Crew or maybe Cole Haan for at or near a hundo.
Depends on when you need it. Do you need it for an interview next week? If so, good buy. If not, wait around for a pair of Allen Edmonds on eBay for not a whole lot more. The BR shoes aren't very good quality, but I've seen worse-looking shoes.
Just a FYI. Despite some of the suggestions, I bought the shoe since I needed something right away. Unfortunately didn't have the time to search/wait for ebay shoes to materialize. Anyway, I just wanted to post actual photos of the shoe. I hope to polish them up and see how they turn out.
