    Good evening, SF. I'm in the market for some dress shoes or dress boots in the Washington DC area.

    I'm looking in the price range of $500 to $750. These will be my first "nice" shoes and I'd like to be able to wear them with a navy and a charcoal suit.

    Can anyone recommend some good brands or stores in the DC metroplex, hopefully closer to the NoVA area or NW DC.

    There's an Allen Edmonds in the Reston Town Center.

    I've bought a couple of pairs at the Alden shop in chinatown/penn quarter, a very solid selection there, and some cool make-ups.

    If I were to do a pair of AE, I'd most likely be going there to just get sized. The Online Exchange for military members gives a serious discount on a few pairs of Allen Edmonds (strands for $200, and everything else is about $250).

    I'm not from DC but I've read good things about Sky Valet. You should check them out. They carry Crockett Jones and Edward Green also.

    There is an Allen Edmonds on Connecticut and K. Also, Alden is on F NW between 9 and 10.

    I've read about EG, but I think they'd be a bit out of my price range despite me being absolutely in love with those shoes. I might have to make the trek to Sky Valet when I've got a free day.
