I'm looking to buy my first nice pair of shoes and as much as everyone likes the Park Avenue's, I just don't wear suits that often. I need a nice pair of shoes for jeans/chinos and button-down's. Would the Lindens be appropriate? They are not too expensive at Grapevinehill right now. Unfortunately, no one in Austin stocks them so I'd be buying sight-unseen and would have to deal with returns if they don't fit.
Thanks, Dave

That's a very good price and seem ideal for your purposes.

I think that would be a very nice shoe for the clothes you mentioned. They would work with a sportcoat as well.

I have to say that I'm not a fan of the shoe. It looks overly bulky and honestly, a bit ugly. (I've also never been a fan of split-seam shoes.)

I say go for it, especially at that price. Of course, I would say this as I just bought myself a pair -- thanks for the PSA!
