    which blucher is the best for price tag of under $300....stylish yet durable and comfortable, to be standing on all day

    i looked at the alden for jcrew longwings, which i like, and the alden nst tie shell, but obvi out of my price range.

    any recommendations?

    Not sure about the best, but AE Cliftons in chestnut meet the request and are very comfortable.

    Depending on your timetable, you might be able to find something when the next Brooks Brothers sale hits.

    well for allen edmonds, what do you guys think of the AE Easton? http://www.zappos.com/n/p/p/7430766/c/8607.html i preferred darker brown...something with a little bit of a european look, but i guess i have compromise somewhere.... for now i guess i can wait a little more

    RL code is pink.

    The Easton looks ugly. Don't like the ridged outsole. If you're looking for rubber soles though, the AE Executive collection are around 280 and comes in different styles (captoe, split toe, plain toe), and don't look like they have a rubber sole unless looking at the bottom directly.

    What a great shot. If you stare at the picture long enough they almost start moving towards you.
