    I found a pair in chestnut at a discount shop last Saturday, 39.99. Decent shape, and I am sure I could at somepoint in the future have them reconditioned.

    I bought a new pair on ebay a while back and wore them for the first time last week. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite pairs of shoes.

    I've just got to get my hands on a pair of Colton in chestnut before they run out.

    Wearing mine today with some casual corduroy trousers. Like them. A lot less boring and conservative than the average AE shoe.
    The Colton looks good.

    It looks like we'll just have to wait and see what changes come forward. Warren Buffet bought several cowboy boot companies and I've not seen in decrease in quality.

    Considering Johnston & Murphy shoes now retail for up to $350 (standard leather - no exotic skin), it would seem that Allen Edmonds could bump up their price a bit.

    They just did. Their basic calfskin dress shoes (Park Avenue et al.) just went up to $305 from $295. I think they had been at that price point for about 18 months or so. Before that is was $285.

    They just keep up with inflation.

    I think VersaceMan meant larger price bump.
