Hi everyone, fairly new to the board and am a second year Aviation Management student here in Canada. Along with my schooling comes paid internships (required) and am working at an airport until the end of August. I will then have another four month internship in the winter also at an airline/airport. Dressing properly is essential and I try to look sharp which is important in this business. I often get the, "where did you learn to dress like that, and you're only 18?", but I guess I just don't want to look sloppy like a large portion of the Canadian business population. I have a pair of quality black shoes as well as a pair of browns but wanted to maybe get another pair of black shoes to alternate out of. Would like to get something of very good quality to last me a while with proper care of course. I have family in Germany so if there is something in Europe the shipping wouldn't be a problem. The first option I came across was the Sutor's at STF:
$369 is probably the top of my budget as I will have to pay 13% taxes along with shipping/brokerage fees unless I ship it to the USA and drive across the border to pick it up (no tax and only an hour drive). I love these Sutor's as the quality looks exceptional as well as the sole.
If you have any other options please let me know
