    I've been looking for a pair of red shoes for the better part of a year. Mix between semi-dress and casual, meaning I can do both. Prefer leather soles, but am flexible. I havent been able to find anything I like. I'd love some suggestions. Suede, leather. No canvas, other materials. The pics below is perfect, exactly what I want, NYRanger sported em in WAYWRN, I PM'd him but he doesnt have the box so I can try and find a pair. If anyone knows what they are please reply. I know that they are the Nordstrom's house brand. [​IMG]

    Brooks brothers has a red suede chukka, black crepe instead of the white though.

    Ive got a pair of red Sperry's... not sure if that's dressy enough for you but could be an option (if you can find them)

    I think those are from last summer.
    1901 Carsons. They were pretty cheap. Wouldn't surprise me if you could still find a pair at a Rack.

    This. If it is indeed the 1901s, avoid em like the plague. You've been warned.

    Those are pretty nice. I just got a pair of Peal penny loafers as well. Thanks...

    Too casual. Cant wear them at work.

    Well, was looking at them in store and they did catch the eye with the different colors offered (red, green, blue etc). Went and picked up a pair and was flabbergasted at how poorly they were constructed and how the felt.

    If you are planning on just occasional wears, you should be fine. And as long as you don't pay too much for em. Think they retail for $100 bucks or so... would not spend more than half of that on em.

    I'm pretty sure the Herrington catalog had brick red plain bucks and wingtip brogue bucks in it. Made by Johnston and Murphy IIRC.

    Red shoes, fairly versatile, work w/ jeans or khakis, underrated.
