Got an email saying they had additional discounts so I checked out their current sales for 30% extra off. Ran across these suede wingtips, made in Italy. Not sure who makes them:

Kipton Oiled Suede Wingtip
http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/i...r=Shopping+Bag

Lots of common sizes left: 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5
Retail $475, on sale for $139

They also have these pebble grain boots, which I thought looked like a good buy. Also made in Italy, no idea who makes them:

Vachetta Kelton Boot
http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/i...r=Shopping+Bag

Also lots of common sizes: 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5
Retail $495, also $139 currently

What do you think of these shoes? Any idea who makes them? I ended up buying one of each for my shoe collection, since $139 is a great deal if the shoes are half decent, since I really like the look of each of them.

Ugly cheap glued sole nasty leather boots, with a price tag that's still too high. Aldo boots with an RL logo.

The crepe sole weirds me out...

If it was either leather sole or darker brown I would be down...but the combo of the 2 makes it seem like still too much $$$
