Quick CM shoe recommendation

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

-$100-$150 (second-hand/used/ebay-grailed-SF classifieds/etc)

-various shades of brown or burgundy (worn with navy suit).  black is probably fine too.

-interview-appropriate

-somewhat wide foot

-i generally favor less pointy lasts + thicker, more substantial soles.  works better with my foot/build.

 

thanks, just need something quick for upcoming interviews.  i know about AE wondering else is out there

Used AE is probably your best bet.  I can't imagine finding anything better for that price range.

thanks!  AE toe shapes look to be a little narrow, but I"m a SWD guy who is used to chunky footwear.  Do you possibly have a recommendation for a specific AE model(s)? 

 

Also, a quick search on grailed makes it seem like I might be able to get Aldens within that higher end of that range (150), was looking at a ptb but not sure if that's appropriate for my use case?  Last/toe shape looks a little wider, which I appreciate

I think you'll have trouble finding Aldens in that range, even used.  If you're willing to bump up your price range a little, the Allen Edmonds shoebank is having a sale on seconds right now.  If you're mostly looking for something to wear in interviews, I'd say you can't go wrong with the Park Avenue or Fifth Avenue.  Check out the "Brooks" models of both.  They're the private label versions that AE makes for Brooks Brothers, and for whatever reason the seconds are a little cheaper.  Only difference between them and the regular versions is that they have a Poron insole.
