I am about to buy my first "real" (by this forum's definition) pair of shoes. I have for the most part decided on the the Alden Shell Cordovan Plain Toe Blucher Oxford in Dark Burgundy. If I decide I like them after wearing them for some time, I will likely get another pair in black. 1. Did I make a good choice? Or should I try again? 2. Can they be had (new) for a better price than $595? I very much wanted a brand made in the USA and Shell Cordovan. Your feedback is most appreciated.
