    Gooter's appear to be in burnished brown.

    email the shoebank, they may have a pair of seconds in your size. They are only $259 right now through the 9th.

    Is it true that Allen Edmond shoes shouldn't be worn on consecutive days?

    i.e. they need to be in a shoe tree for one day before rewearing?

    What's the company's name? Is there a website?

    not just AE shows, but quality shoes you want to last in general...don't wear consecutively and have shoe trees in when not wearing

    Ideally yes. Any shoes will benefit from a rotation. Once you have enough in the rotation you will find that you rarely, if ever, wear out your fine shoes. I have the first pair of AE's I ever bought as a junior in HS!

    Look at Kent Wang for a black whole cut.

    Depends on your budget; however, I still think they are quite ugly. Are you looking for somehting to wear with a suit? Or chino-like dress pants?

    Just my luck, the pair of Strands that I ordered from Amazon came today. the shoes looked great but I found out for some reason the stitches that ties the tongue to inner wall of the left shoes were ripped out :( Unfortunately, Amazon is now out of my size. I absolutely love the shoes and don't want to return it. Amazon is offering me a 20% discount. Should I take it and send the shoes to AE for repair? :(

    Lol... I prefer the shoes to be around 100 bucks, no more than 150. I'm looking for a pair that goes with business casual and maybe business professional. I do have a pair of chinos and dress pants. Am I supposed to size down for dress shoes like A.E.

    I didn't mean to be rude, btw!! Are you looking for black or brown? I don't mind helping you. AE is having an amazing sale right now, so it is worth contemplating whether you can put some more cash in for a better investment.

    Otherwise, it is always a good idea to get properly measured (especially if looking at eBay where some good deals may come without a return policy)

    Ahah it's cool. I'm looking for a pair of black. The nearest A.E. store is 40 something miles away in S.F., so I'm not really looking forward to driving the distance. Are there any other stores that I can try on some shoes? Nordstrom is kind of expensive...

    or should I get something on the A.E. site. Is this like the cheapest the discounts get? or are they better during days like Black Friday?
