I got BB MacNeils and BB Sheltons for $169 each.
I wear an 8.5D in most AEs, and the Sandersons width is fine for me. The heel is a tiny bit loose if anything. There are several versions of the Sanderson. I recommend them all. The "tan" color is more like a "walnut," which is my favorite color du jour.
OK, Sunday morning first-world problem for you fellow addicts.
I ended up with an approximate 200$ credit from the jeffersonville outlet from a recent return. I requested store credit instead of a refund because I was doubtful they would take the shoes back in the first place (based on dark sole smudges from my carpet), but Kristle was cool enough to do so.
My recently-culled rotation (thinned out from 8 pairs due to sizing problems related to losing 50 lbs):
Dark Brown Neumora (both seconds from the 2/250 sale)
Chili Regent Streets
Grey McTavish (for casual jeans)
Since I'm a professional musician (not a banker), I don't have a need for too many of the more conservative styles. My current lineup doesn't have any lighter brown or burgundy/merlot shoes, so I was considering using the credit towards Walnut Sheltons, as the style lends itself to being dressed (reasonably) up or down.
BUT, I noticed a new addition to my size list yesterday: burgundy shell Cambridge 2nd, and my resolve wavered. I'm a musician, so I don't really have a practical need for too many traditional dress shoes, and the Neumoras fit the needs of my occasions just fine (one agency I work for requires black shoes always but is not picky on the type of shoe. I once wore a black LWB and no one batted an eye), and the walnut Shelton would probably suit my current needs a little better. But...
...I can't imagine another opportunity any time some in my current budget to get something in shell. The Cambridge fits a color gap in my cycle, but it'll be my third wingtip, and my third dark dress shoe, so a little redundant. There is also a burgundy shell leeds in my style, but I'm really not into the look of the shoe.
Advice? I'm going to make the call sometime today.
I also briefly considered walnut Rutledge or walnut Flatiron, as I like the 3 last for my feet.
