This is going to be weird but I'm having trouble choosing between the following shoes:
Allen Edmonds Strand
Red Wing Beckman Boot
Common Projects Premium Achilles in Tan
They're all new and I can get each one for about $210. (I have the hookup on the first two and the third is through a user on here.)
I don't really have a good dress shoe or a proper boot. But I don't necessarily need them either. I guess the Strand would be good for potential job interview here and there, but I don't know if I'd wear it casually that often since it's a balmoral.
The Beckman, I'd probably get nice use of if I ever went to the forest or needed to trudge through snow, or if I wanted to throw on some work style gear.
The Achilles I'd probably wear all the time. I could kind of see it dominating my moderately sized sneaker collection though. It's kind of a luxury item...
Damn tough decision. If only my pockets ran deep.
