cheap backup shoes for workwhat do you guys think...AE Banffs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so tomorrow its going to rain/snow like crazy in NY and i have bean boots rdy to wear on the commute.
do you think the black AE Banffs are too casual to change into at work for these type of days?

i dont want to take a nice pair of shoes and leave them at work because i have different offices to go to during the week.

if those are too casual under pants, can you recommend another pair of shoes that i can throw into my daily duffel bag and carry around for a quick change...somewhere around the Banff price of $125 or so.

Where do you work? If you're wearing suit those are probably too casual.

I think it's a little too casual for that. It really is more of a slipper than a shoe.

Consider some of AE's other discontinued models on their ebay store. They have a Kenwood and a Bergamo, both loafers, for around a hundred.

I think either of those would be an improvement over the Banff.
