    I would get the navy suede Cavanaughs. They're on clearance for $157, look baller, and in my opinion go better with business casual than the McAllisters. Olive or snuff suede are also pretty nice, and might go better with your trousers. If you'd rather the wingtip, I'd get the Madison Park from Nordstrom's for $245 over the McAllister.

    Wow, the navy suede it is.. Good call.

    Is it possible to wear the suede with a nice tan leather belt? or am I now locked into purchasing the blue suede belt as well? lol

    To me, loafers can be pulled off by a younger person but I don't think they are versatile enough over the Madison parks or mcallisters. Just my opinion of course.

    I agree completely, these are significantly flashier.

    Hopefully i'll catch the wingtips on sale at some point during the summer.

    Looks like I got the last pair of 10 E's. My strands are D's. Hopefully they fit decently enough to keep

    I agree that young people can wear loafers, especially navy suede. Us old people cannot wear those without the song running through our heads constantly. Young people have probably never heard the song.

    The back of my heels, more specifically for my right foot, are absolutely torn up.
    Actual blood has touched the inside of my oxblood graysons now.
    The pain one must go through during the first 5-10 wearings :(

    At least you can touch up scuffs right on the spot without having to go home to get polish.

    It's time for another installment of "Handy tips for Ebay Pictures ®." Today's tip: "Shoe trees are your friend." Yes, after several years of beating your shoes to death, wadding them up and storing them in your car trunk, a pair of shoe trees will smooth over a few rough spots that some discriminating shoe lovers may find objectionable. No amount of phrases such as "fair condition" and "moderate use" in the ad will overcome the lack of a good set of trees. This is especially true when one is asking $75 for these beauties. If nothing else, they will help cover up a sweaty insole.

    My heart goes out to those shoes. It pains me to see full grain leather shoes in such neglected condition like that.

    Heck, at the very least stuff some paper in there to smooth them out.

    Pictures of cars in this thread might be better if the pictures included Allen-Edmonds shoes, for example, a purple McLaren and walnut Allen-Edmonds Lombards.....
