    I've two Cflitons; a bit narrow for my taste but great shoes. Very happy with them.

    And unless he's a grammar teacher, not sure there is really much irony.

    Why? Teachers have to be versed and semi-skilled in all subject areas. Every teacher needs to know how to properly write.

    IMO, any of the shoes you posted are appropriate. It is more important to be comfortable while on your feet, especially since you will be walking around a classroom for the entirety of the day... Unless you plan on teaching from or sitting on top of your desk.

    But no one should be expected to be immune from typo. Now if he actually believed that were proper...whole other issue. Reading a book about American history books...just goes to emphasize how important teacher involvement is. And while I'd never homeschool my kids....they will be getting some pretty serious after school sessions with Ms. Claghorn and me to undo some of the damage.

    I knew my grammar would be under a microscope by mentioning my occupation, but using the incorrect article was a typo. For what it's worth, I teach mathematics. Obviously, my grammar is not as refined as most on here, however, I would like to focus on improving my style for the purposes of this forum. I appreciate everyones advice so far.

    I agree, which is why I referred to my comment as petty. I just thought it was funny, and this is a internet forum after all. Though, some teachers are terrible.

    Would all the above shoes be considered RTW? I assume it means ready to wear?

    The Santoni's and To Boots are not worth $300+. Return or eBay them.

    Then call up the AE Shoe Bank and order a bunch of seconds. Should run you about $175 each :D Good starter shoes if you're on a budget.

    I bought all of them, however, I've worn only the kenneth cole which I purchased more than a month ago. The rest can be returned. I'm an elementary school teacher.

    I'm not allowed to wear jeans so I wear wool trousers during the colder months. I need to purchase khakis that fit me better.

    Will they go with black jeans which I wear at night? I do not own dressy jeans in blue. Will the shoes in burgundy or a darker brown be more versatile with what I own?
