After looking around some more, I've narrowed my search down to these three:
Steve Madden Evander 2:
Johnston & Murphy Knowland:
Banana Republic Swift Chelsea:
I love the J&M brown brogued boots; it's a shame that the black ones aren't brogued. The shape, color, brogueing(sp?)... everything about those is beautiful.
The Banana Republic ones are very sleek and nice as well.
And I like the Steve Maddens, too. But I'm concerned that the black ones will be very plastic-looking, if that makes sense.
I can't decide which of these to get. I might even get one in brown and one in black. I guess it comes down to quality because the price is approximately equal.
What are your opinions?
