    Hello, gentlemen. I've owned a few various pairs of AEs, and even with my slimmer foot (12B) I feel the toes are too rounded/bulbous. I love the shoes with a good balance of chisel/point/rounded, such as these EG's:

    Is there a decent quality oxford out there under $200 that has more of that toe shape? Any suggestions?

    What about in the $200-$350 range new that I may look to find second hand?

    Thanks for the suggestions,

    Evan

    Under $200 I would say it is difficult to find. For the $200 to $350 range, some newer AE lasts have a more chiseled look which may work for you. Sometimes you can find Crockett & Jones and Alfred Sargent on sale which will set you back around $350 to $500. I think the difficulty is finding a 12B since that is fairly narrow. Alden shoes on the Plaza and Aberdeen are quite nice but their shoes are closer to $500 also. I have to say my EG's do have a nice balance. :D

    The shoes themselves are generally under $400 when you buy directly from Carmina. See the e-store.

    ^This. If they don't have what you want in the store you can look through the models on the website and email them to see if they're in stock. Most calf are 270 EU + 50 EU shipping which is just around $400.
