I don't want to buy something $100-200 from nordstrom rack or off fifth and not like it that much, it will feel like a waste, I'd much rather pay $300-400 and get something I really want to wear. I like English chisel toe styles like G&G, vass, and C&J, and I would buy those except I have no way to try them on.
Allen Edmonds doesn't offer many chiseled toe shoes, maybe the larchmont and the rutledge. but the rutledge is almost $475 and I saw G&G in NYC for $500 on sale. I just cant justify spending $500 on AE shoes.
Larchmont is at $345 which is ok. Kent wang has shoes for $350 and $450. But not sure if I can go try those on.
any ideas would be appreciated
