Seconded. I can appreciate the look that some other shoes have in the artful abstract. But many of them look ridiculous on my feet and for a typical body frame. Alden shoes are a good compromise of style, substance, and practicality. The Leather Soul makeups are especially wonderful.
You can spend a lot more for shoes that are "higher end", but the quality/fit may not be worth that incremental price difference.
