I've been looking for my next pair of shoes. The discount sites have been unhelpful with carrrying my size or even having the shoe available. For example: the C&J Westfield in Calf Brown, the AE Strands in Dk Brwn, and the Alden Medallion Tip Bal in Brown are either too new, completely unavailable or just unavailable in my size. This made me consider purchasing a shoe at full retail, which many here will claim to avoid as much as possible and I can't buy used. Looking through the list of HIGH END SHOES, avoiding the rediculously expensive brands, which brands would be considered a good buy even at full retail price?
