post #16 of 21
these aren't a good idea for interviews, but seem to be the only the in 11.5D

if you can wear an 11.5E, this is a pretty good choice - it's AE's other cap-toe - the Niles:

grimslade- thanks for the advice about century 21 - i picked up a pair of Colton - they actually had my size - it came out to 180 with tax - is that a good price or should i wait for an ebay deal to come up?

The price is OK, since they had your size and you need a pair pretty soon. You might be able to do better, but my advice would be to keep the ones you've got so you at least have one pair of decent shoes that fit well and are appropriate to the task. That gives you the freedom to lie in wait for the possibility of better deals as you expand your shoe collection.

I think the factory outlets and the online merchants seem to have these items simultaneously. The Colton has been on closeout status since December, I am pretty sure. I have no experience whatsoever with the "first quality" A-E retail stores, there being none in my part of the country.

If the shoes are firsts, it is a very good deal. A-E's normal price for closeout firsts is $222. If they were seconds, it was about par, A-E's pre-tax price being $169. You can tell by looking at the soles. If there is a little shoe branded on one sole, they are seconds.

I got my Coltons from nordstrom's rack for $130. They have a few of them in just about every size, and even some browns. Edit: oops they are Cortlands, cap-toe open-laced.
