post #1 of 6

I am looking for a pair of brown double monks in the $300-$400 range. Which of the below would you recommend? Are there any others I should be looking at in this range?

 

1) To Boot - Langley

2) Grenson - Ellery

3) AE - Newmora

Much appreciated

Thanks. I came across that article a few weeks ago in my search. Any opinion on the 3 I listed?

None of the above -- meermin = best value.

+1 on the Meermin. It's approx. $200. Another shoe to consider in your price range is Howard Yount's - I have this in suede.

If you have another $80 look at Paul Stuart.

$550 - $600 takes you to Carmina calf, C&J and Alfred Sargent. I presently have the AS Ramsey, but intend to replace it with the Carmina shell monk.

BTW, you linked to the Grenson twice. Of these 3 you linked I'd go w/ AE. I don't like the medallion on the Grenson and I've never handled a To Boot shoe. What I've read of To Boot isn't complimentary.
