Is this the one you recommended? And at this price? Just wondering if I got your pointer correctly.
Are these "recommended" investments? ... based on some reading that talked about buying more reliable higher priced brands/ models with leather sole and stitching and they would LAST longer and be better LONGER TERM investments (less $/ year of Classic Style) that wont go out of trend.
yes, you got both of them right, and they both has US stores which you can try on.
have a read of the 1st post in this thread if you haven't, I wouldn't call any shoe an investment personally, it's more about buying what fits you within a reasonable budget that you have set yourself.
