Newbie: Style, Quality and Price - The Shoe Search

Hey all,

I've been searching these threads for a while and am sick and tired of how I look. I am eager to start changing it from dressing like a bum and become a more fashion forward person.

I am looking for a black shoe that is stylish, high quality and reasonable price. I am looking to spend an upward of $600.

Stylish black shoes are always hard to find because of the color nothing tends to stand out at all. I saw a few shoes by Gucci and Prada but am worried about the quality. I am looking to push the envelope and I love these stylish type shoes, some will say flashy, but I love that kind of style.

I have heard about Allens, but they are too traditional for my taste. Sutors are nice buy I want to try them on first :S All the high quality shoes seem to have a boring style and vice versa. The only time where its stylish and high quality is when the shoe costs +$1000.

Also, I live in Canada - Ottawa, so I want to try on the shoe instead of buying them for +$30 shipping and shipping them back +$30, which is such a waste of money in IMHO.

Please Shoe Gods! I need to be a man and buy a good shoe :)
