Aesthetically, AE shoes just didn't work out for me. However, they have a versatile stable of shoes at very reasonable prices, whether you buy them full price at ~$330 or as seconds / on sale at ~$200. With the number of styles they have, one could easily and economically stock their entire shoe collection using only AE.
That's what I'm looking for - suggestions for another reasonably priced, "one-stop shop" brand. My next choice was Alden but the price point jumps to $450-$500 (not that they aren't worth it). So what other brands should I consider?
