Ok, let me just state my situation I'm in right now. I'm an 18 year old male, just a freshman in college. I'm not like the older members of this site, who have a job and obviously more money than I do. I like to look good, but I'm not willing to sacrifice let's say, my food spending or other necessities for nicer clothes. I'm really looking for a decent brown wing tip pair of shoes that can be worn with a button down an dark jeans and can also fit in with a lighter colored suit (which I don't have, but that will be coming soon if I have enough money...). Something that a younger person would wear. I don't really like Yes, I've heard about Allen-Edmonds, A. Testoni, Loake (which look really great and probably feel better), and then those ugly (in my opinion) dress shoes from Prada and Dsquared which seem absolutely overpriced simply for their name and status in fashion today. I've skimmed the site and read several things and reasons on why it's best to spend good money on shoes. I understand, but I still have the ability to grow out of them (which I would absolutely hate) and I don't have the money even if I wanted to. It's simply out of the question for me at the present time. I have seen that thread comparing Johnston and Murphy, Cole Haan, and Kenneth Cole. I have 2 pairs of Cole Haans (1 moc loafer, 1 brown casual leather), and as much as you guys have been bombing Cole Haan, they do have wear and tear from use, but nothing's falling apart for the year I've had them. I like to take care of my shoes, put shoe trees in them, use a shoe horn whenever I can, etc. Nothing has been ripping, falling apart, breaking, tearing, etc. At least so far, and hopefully it stays that way. Same for a pair of Kenneth Coles I got for 56 dollars from 180. They aren't bad, but I can tell the quality isn't as good as a pair of J&Ms I had before. They do feel amazingly comfortable. I was literally dancing for 2 hours straight in my prom get-up and every guy friend was whining about how their feet hurt from moving so much in their shoes. I felt great. --- Summary if it's too long: Looking for brown wing tips. Preferably <$150. Please do not recommend me 300 dollar shoes. I don't care unless they make me fly. Any suggestions that are 150 and under would be awesome and extremely helpful. I'm not looking for a shoe I plan to keep for 20 years and then pass down to my child, or something. I'm looking for a practical, well-built dress shoe that's versatile enough and fits in my budget of <$150. I don't know much about all the shoe brands, so any new knowledge for me to learn is great. --- One pair I was interested in... http://www.shoebuy.com/johnston-murp...ing-tip/300929 Can get total for 85.16 (20% off of the 100 something price).
