Hi, I've recently started updating my wardrobe, and decided to invest in some more expensive shoes. I ended up buying a pair of shoes at Johnston and Murphy for $365. (Canadian dollar is at par with US). They are the Ellard Saddle shoe - Made in Italy. I love the look of them - I've worn the shoes once and I can see some imperfections that are bugging me, (and possibly sole glue coming unstuck). I was thinking of just getting them replaced with a pair that didn't have the same problem - but the more I research - the more it seems that J&M isn't the place to spend big money on shoes. Is there any chance that J&M'S more expensive shoes are better quality than their cheaper shoes - or should I take the back and replace with something from AE? Wish that AE had that style/colour. Thanks for any opinions/info!
