Hey everyone. I'm trying to plot out my next shoe purchase, but I'm honestly unsure what to do.
I have a pair of walnut strands which are gorgeous... so my next shoe will either be brown or black. I dress fairly casually, so it's not like I'm wearing suits everyday. I also don't have an office job, so the shoes will just be for walking around the city and stuff.
I'm torn between getting the park ave's in a shade of brown (the new bourbon looks great) or the 5th aves in brown.
Do you guys think the sleekness of the park aves (and lack of broguing) makes them too formal? I wish they 5th aves came in bourbon, that would be ideal for me.
Also, does anyone know about Meermin quality compared to AE?

Since you already have walnut strands, I would suggest going with a shade of brown considerably different than walnut. That being the case, plus your intended uses and casual dress, and limiting my answer to only park ave v. fifth ave, I would go with the dark brown fifth ave.
