I've been wanting to upgrade my look and wardrobe for a while now and I figured I would start with shoes. After researching and reading this thread I decided on AEs. The salesman talked me into the Strand in Walnut and Park Avenues in black for my more formal wear. I love the strands but they are a little out of my comfort zone and my wife thinks they are way too busy. I've got to start somewhere tho.
So proud new owner of Strand in Walnut and Park Avenue in Black
Congratulations, and welcome to the club! Two fine choices there.
