Lets say you were giving $6K to spend on shoes and you given the following requirements:

2 pair dress brown
1 pair dress casual brown
1 pair dress casual black

How would you spend it?

Does our budget have to be at MSRP, or what they can be had for on sale or on Ebay? Thanks.

Dammit, Whnay, when I asked you to do my shopping for me I wasn't expecting you to ask the entire Styleforum about it.

I'd break into Kenneth Pollock's closet, steal his shoes, and pocket the $6000. And while I was there, I might take some wine, and that little travelling wine carrier thingy he has as well. Oh, and if he caught me, I'd look him in the eye and say, "Hi, my name is Dakota, and I'll be stealing from you today...."

Lets say MSRP barring any sales that could be had overseas just after Xmas.

six thousand (that's USD not HKD right?)

I'd most probably get a variety of wholecuts: Tramezza, C&J, JL and maybe Vass or EG. I'm in a wholecut sort of mood

At one time or another, shouldn't everyone own a pair of shoes crafted from genuine Russian reindeer ???
