Being new to the forum, I did a search of a question I have and didn't come up with anything. If someone recognizes this question from a previous post, please provide a URL. Thanks. It wasn't until a few years ago that I finally realized how much nicer, longer lasting, and comfortable well-made shoes can be. Trouble is at this point being able to afford what I like. Now the question. What are some shoe purchases you didn't make that looking back you wish you did? Over the years I'm sure many of us has seen a good deal on a pair of shoes that was too good to pass up, but we didn't buy the shoes because either we had too many shoes already, funds were tight, or for some other reason. Let's hear about purchases you wish you had made but didn't. Mine are as follows: 1. John Lobb captoes marked down to $249 from $895 at a NM Last Call store. I was naive at the time and didn't know how good Lobb shoes were. 2. Several pairs of Brooks Brothers (Alden) straight tip bluchers with medallion in color 8 shell cordovan and black shell cordovan for $135 a pair (including tax). 3. Several Oxxford sportcoats 15 years ago at NM last call that were obscenely low priced, but I didn't know Oxxford from anyone else at the time.
