    "Go-to Business Shoe"
    Pros - Traditional, conservative, business appropriate
    Cons - Conservative, boring
    I own three pair of the AE Park Avenues, black, brown and merlot. This is my go-to everyday business shoe that I typically wear with a suit and tie. The quality is very good, the shoe shines up well, and while its not going to blow anyone away with it's fashion forward style, the Park Avenue is a great, traditional, conservative business captoe that won't steer you wrong.

    "Perfect day wear shoe"
    Pros - Great conservative style, adequate quality leather
    I bought a pair of these shoes on sale for my 10 year old boy's first really big piano concert.

    The only color they had in store was a shiny merlot/burgundy/cordovan color which I did not like at first but now that the kid has worn them so much I am actively trying to find a new pair to fit his growing feet.

    The shoes look much better quality than they are, and they maintain their quality look despite very hard use and wear.

    The shoes are really comfortable and the kid is really tough on them. He actually says the shoes are more comfortable than his sneakers!

    After 9 months of devastating wear they can still be polished and returned to the kid's feet looking just like new, complete with the full shine and scuff marks polished away with Saphir products..

    I don't own a pair myself, but I would not reject the idea out of hand

    "An American Classic"
    An American Classic
    Pros:
    Staple item that can be had for less $250.
    When needed it can be recrafted by Allen Edmonds for $100.
    Comes in all the classic colors. I suggest the black calf for the Park Avenue.
    Allen Edmonds makes the polish, lotion,... that are made for this model.
    Comes in all widths. AAA, AA, A, B, C, D, EE, EEE

    Cons:
    Leather quality is good, but not great.

    Tips: AEs can almost always be brought on sale. Check Shoebuy, the B&S board, Ebay,...
    These run a little narrow. Some of the colors and leathers offered don't go well with the PA.

    I bought 2 pairs[both seconds].One pair in black and one in walnut scotch grain.I can't discern any real issues that qualify them as seconds.They fit well and cost less than some inferior brands.

    Cool story. I'm selling a pair of Park Avenue's, Black, size 8, medium (D) width. They have a topy (thin rubber sole) added which is an extra $25 value plus extends the shoe's life. I took great care of em, polishing, etc. I barely wore them for 3 months, they were a little too small for me. Their essentially worth the $350, but I want $190 for them.
