As a present to myself for having taken the bar exam, I bought my first pair of Edward Greens at the Chicago Ralph Lauren store. I'm absolutely in love with them. They were on sale for $500, and I have included a picture of them in the following link: http://img142.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img1704pj8.jpg Now I must decide what to do with my ill-fitting AE Park Avenues, which are also black in color. They are one size too narrow. I have narrowed my choices down to either taking them to a cobbler to have them stretched or to sell them. One question I have is whether having a shoe stretched alters its appearance at all...basically, would the upper would look "wrong" on the sole? Another consideration is building my professional wardrobe. I do not currently own any acceptable brown shoes. The EGs and AEs are essentially pretty similar - so would I do better to sell the AEs and put the proceeds towards a pair of brown shoes? Any opinions are greatly appreciated!
