So I'm going to get my first authentically relatively nice pair of shoes for Christmas. The conundrum is that I am unsure whether to put my entire budget towards one really nice pair, or two good pairs. The two good pairs would be one black, one brown or burgundy. I have a budget of about $400-$600, so if anyone could give me insight that'd be great. Particularly I've been eyeing a pair of Salvatore Ferregamos in a Dark Brown that I find gorgeous, but think that only one pair wouldn't be versatile enough, and that if I wore them everyday since they'd be my main pair, they'd wear out quicker. My current my main shoes are a set of Johnston and Murphy XC4 Penny Loafers with Chinos and jeans, and a pair of Florsheim Saddle-Shoes with Suede base for with Jeans. Both are already showing wear with 2-3 months of wear, and the J&M have already been brought in for polishing and such. I don't know if that's atypical, so I look to you all for guidance. The penny loafers are a dark brown as well.
