    Hi :)

    I am new to this forum so don't go too harsh on me :D and i also never owned a pair of dress shoes :D

    I need a pair of Oxfords in the 250 Euro range. So after a lot of research and phone calls i narrowed it down to 3 options:

    http://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/m...s/SF6215.html?dwvar_SF6215_color=6202#start=5
    http://berwickshoes.com/en/shoes/mod-3561-2/
    http://www.loake.co.uk/bystyle/buckingham.html#customer-reviews

    I need orthopedic shoe soles, should i still size half a size down on the Berwicks and the Loaks?

    And a few more questions regarding my indecisiveness and doubts i hope you can answer me:

    - How do these 3 compare in terms of quality (looks, craftsmanship and materials). Is there a winner? Is it true that the Berwicks are on pair with C&J?
    -What's the difference between the Berwick "Ramato" color and walnut from AE?
    -The Berwick seems to have a thicker outsole, is that true?
    -Do the Berwicks have the most shock absorbing soles due it being thicker? If not who, does?
    -Would it be possible to attach a thin rubber sole on top of the leather sole of the AE / Loakes? Would that make the sole as thick as the Berwick and also give more schock absorbtion?
    -Do all 3 have the same heel height?
    -Are the Loaks and Berwicks roomier than AE?

    Kind regards and thank you very much :)
