I used to wear AE Park Avenue but got sick of how bulbous the toe looks. If you think you may have this problem, it would save you money in the long run to get the last that you like.
My Park Avenues were my first real pair of dress shoes; I still remember thinking "damn, these look nice" when I pulled them out of the box the first time. That said, I admit that your captoes look much sleeker.
Funny, you mention that--I live around the corner from their BK brick and mortar, and I plan on picking a pair up. I didn't love the suede accents on the last go round but I'm looking forward to the next batch. Stumbled on the KWs and as theyre significantly less $$, it seems worth investigating if they could work.
How was the leather quality? The website doesn't give much in the way of detail.
