I've been running up against a problem. I'd like to get a pair of dark brown oxford shoes -- ones that I can wear with anything from trousers to blue jeans. They should fit my general lifestyle as a graduate student, which means I'd like for them to be nice, but nothing brogued or overly dressy. My problem is that I'm on a fairly tight budget. I recently discovered Salvatore Ferragamo Pierluigi shoes, and I quite like them, but even on eBay they're a good $250. Something like these would also be great http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l4...zg1ao1_500.jpg Does this community have any recommendations on what I can get? My budget doesn't stretch more than $150. Many thanks in advance for your advice.
