    I have plenty of pairs of Allen Edmonds in diffrent styles but I want to add some items that make dressing up a little bit more itneresting. I already have fun Corgi socks and bowties that always get attention. I don't want to be obnoxious or rude but I think the new Cole Haan Lunargrands are fun. I see that Generic Man also has similar offerings.

    Can anyone recommend any other brands that produce dress shoes (nice enough to be worn with a suit or at least chinos/khakis and an OCBD that have interesting contrasting colored soles or not your run of the mill flat brown/black uppers?

    Thanks.

    Fratelli Rossetti sometimes does these. I've seen a number of pairs on Rue La La men's sales that will either have some contrast stitching, contrasting marks on the medallion of a wingtip or slightly odd but still reasonably wearable colors (deep navy, dark olive, burnt orange).

    Wow thanks for the tip. I guess I should re-enable emails from Rue La La huh? They were a bit spammy and I never saw anything I liked.

    If you don't want to go back on Rue, try Yoox also, they have a bunch of FR at decent (not great) prices.
