I'm desperately looking for a pair of stylish, but not over the top, brown shoes to replace my only pair now, but I have 2 constraints - limited funds (looking at ~$250) and I take a b/narrow width. I've taken to several of the A-E's in mocha (dryden, saxon, but my concern is that it's a "trendy" or "dated" color, and that it's not as flexible as possibly a burnished brown. Takes on this color regarding limitations w/ pants color and as my only pair of brown shoes?? As far as the price, I'd get them from the AE store in Burlington, NC. Oh yeah....I'm really smitten w/ the Ferragamo Bruce, but at $380 it's a no-go.
