For the price, how do Dexter shoes stack up?

For that price, look for AEs on ebay or at Filene's Basement and Nordy Rack.

This is what I've been told. You're probably going to hear that AE is the minimum acceptable quality standard here. You probably know more than I do.

I've owned a few pairs and haven't been too impressed with their quality. However, no pair I purchased cost anywhere near $175.00.

I come across vintage brown and black Dexter double leather soled wingtips and Dexter weeguns all the time for very short money. Those vintage Dexters are built very similarly to vintage Florsheim imperials. I let them sit because they don't sell well on ebay. A shame, they are battleships.

I can't speak for the current Dexter line.

Do you own a pair? Just bought a NOS on eBay.

Are they really at same level of Florsheim (made in USA)?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
