Hi everyone - new to this forum but I'm going on because I want to find some ideas for a gift for my boyfriend. We just had our anniversary and his birthday is coming up soon!
I know he is a fan of Allen Edmonds - I think he has one with the wingtips!
I was wondering if any of you have any suggestions for his next shoe? I think he should go for a brown - he'll be wearing it to work in quite a conservative environment so I think maybe a darker brown. I think a bit of design would look good too and maybe something sleek!
Wendy J - you sound like an amazing catch. He is lucky to have such a thoughtful woman. It really depends on what he has and what he can use, and also your price point. If your price point is a little higher ($5-600), I think your boyfriend's jaw would hit the floor if he saw a pair of cappuccino cordovan Strands, Cambridges, Fifth Avenues or Park Avenues. If you want to spice things up a bit, I would also recommend emailing Paul Grangaard (the CEO of Allen Edmonds) and seeing if they could do a custom make up for you of a Fifth Street in cappuccino.
It sounds like your relationship will outlast his best pair of cordovan shoes - a rare thing these days!
