Banana Republic shoes?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

With a substantial discount:
http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthr...readid=1821055

I was browsing some items and bumped into these

$52 after discount - in brown

$60 after discount - with a rubber sole in brown, was thinking these would be good for wet/puddle days in Miami

I remember faintly that the general consensus is that BR shoes are horrible for the price...but for 60 bucks - would they be decent wet/crappy weather shoes? I know these shoes probably aren't candidates for resoling, but when it comes to "horrible" - is that from it falling apart when water touches it or its lacking some of things that make a good shoe (ie goodyear welting, etc?)

Thinking more about it...with careful shopping and patience I was able to collect 2nds and lightly worn AE and Ferragamos for around 80 or less....so I guess the real question would be is a 20% savings worth it for glue jobs and I guess peace of mind of not cringing everytime I step in a puddle with the better shoes :-p

If you're that worried abuot getting your other shoes wet during rainy season, then 1 pair of BR shoes isn't going to kill you. FYI, BR has 40% off all sale stuff in store, so I'm sure you can get better deals there then online.
