I have been looking for a rather versatile shoe to add to my wardrobe that I can wear with chinos and woolen trousers. Being a college student I don't plan to wear these everyday, maybe once or twice a week and until I save up enough for Greens or Lobbs (still a year or two away) I will also need to use these for when I dress up and wear a suit. I have a problem in that I'm a size 11 and most shoes look like clown shoes on me. I'v been looking around for months and have not found anything in the price range I have been looking for (under $400) until these shoes from Zegna: Zegna Shoes I know their is probably a markup for the Zegna name and they are probably not worth $400, but my question to the people who know about shoe construction is: how much is the markup? I'm willing to pay a bit for the markup but don't want the shoes to fall apart within a year or two or even five. Also what do you think about the styling? I like rather simple and sleek shoes and the color seems versatile enough, but I'd like to her opinions of others more experienced than me.
