    If they are discontinuing the 5th street, I hope they replace it with a similar dress boot on the same last. I was never able to pick up the 5th streets due to needing a C width.

    It might be a while, but I will post. I am also thinking about a blue suede PA; it's a little bit more versatile.

    Do you know what shade of blue you want (not sure if there's a certain hue you have to choose).

    I'm not sure either. Probably navy like the Players Shoe (which I hope to try on later this month). I'm guessing I will have to pick a leather they already offer. But I will find out. I like it because if I want something like a Dalton in brown shell or tan suede, they'll do it. I just have to pay for it and wait.

    **EDIT**

    Likewise, if you missed a WebGem like the cappucino shells, you can probably still order it custom. Expect to pay an additional $125 though.

    Hey guys.. I work in a business casual environment. Is the strand (walnut) to dressy of a shoe to wear to work?

    I have a job interview Thursday at a very large corporation for a finance internship. I am planning to wear my charcoal or possibly navy suit, white shirt, haven't chosen a tie yet, and I am struggling on which shoes to wear.

    I am down to:

    Fifth Ave in Black
    5th St Boot in Brown
    McAllister in Burgundy

    Which one would you guys wear?

    I vote McAllister if you go w/ the charcoal suit. Always felt that burgundy/#8 looks great w/ charcoal. Good luck. IMO, don't wear brown shoes to a finance gig. Black or burgundy / #8.

    I think that the Fifth Street or the McCallisters may be too flashy for an interview. I would go with the Fifth Avenues.

    The general rule would say: if you wear the navy suit, brown shoes. If you wear the charcoal, black shoes.

    IMO if it's known as a conservative workplace, charcoal/black. If it's a bit more progressive, navy/brown. Also depends how you want to present yourself of course!

    I think the general feeling is that black shoes look too stark with anything other than charcoal or black. Of course, the "rules" are never hard and fast, except among the Style Police.:)

    That said, I think a burgundy shoe would go well with navy.

    Interview attire usually dictates a black dress shoe. Go with the Fifth Ave in Black, and pick a somber tie as well. Good luck.

    In an interview, unless for a style or fashion place, dress as classically as poss to be safe. Funky shoes may grab the eye but that is not a good thing most of the time in a business interview.

    Black and polish well before going.
