    606 last in Dark Oak.


    A number of firsts: My first shoe that cost more than $295 (several pairs of AE) and my first time buying a dress boot.

    Heavily discounted at Saks (paid $550).

    I love the shoe, but just curious what is most appropriate to wear them with.

    They had two other EGs as well, including a suede cap toe (sorry, don't know the name/last#) in a 10.5 D for right around $500. Gorgeous but a bit too small for me.

    Where did you get your shoes?

    Doh! Can't believe I missed that fact. It was Saks in Manhattan.

    Is there a sale going on at Saks? If so - how large is the selection?
    I'll be in NYC tomorrow and will stop by if there is?

    Those are great looking boots. I would wear them with just about everything from the casual (cords, moleskins, etc.) to flannel trousers and tweed jackets. I would wear them with suits, but not very formal, refined worsted city suits.
