Can someone recommend a brand for a quality balmoral/oxford, or even a blucher, that is $200 or under, preferably? I prefer smooth/wholecut (i.e no caps, wingtips, etc). They dont need to be the best shoes ever, just to hold me over as an entry shoe into the workforce until I can buy myself a proper shoe. I would prefer a shoe that doesnt have the large, chunky rubber sole that my current Eccos do and maintains a classy profile.
Thanks for your time!
While I risk looking like a PutThisOn-bot, I find their list of affordable brands quite exhaustive: http://putthison.com/post/43010205853/finding-affordable-shoes-shoes-may-or-may-not-be
