    Hey All,

    I'm always disappointed by the color of brown shoes I buy. I have AE Park Avenue's in brown, and they ARE brown, but they look more burgundy to me.

    Any recommendations on a quality $300ish dress shoe that has a true chocolate brown color?

    Thanks

    Just not seeing burgundy when I look at my Brown Fifth Avenues. If they were Chili, then I could see where burgundy comes from. I could also see if you were talking about Brown CXL But I don't see any red to my Dark Brown Fifth Avenues. That's about as "chocolate brown" as they come.

    I have a pair of suede AE McClains which are very much dark choco brown. Doesn't help you much though, as they're not made any more.
