    So here are my shoes
    [​IMG]

    left to right:
    TOP:
    Cheaney brown suede chelseas
    Unknown italian brand black zip chelsea
    Blue suede LL Bean mocs (I have green ones also)

    MIDDLE:
    AE Dalton in Walnut
    Clarks DB in Brown Suede (I also own beeswax ones)
    Ferragamo Wingtips

    BOTTOM:
    Church's Chelsea Boots
    Loding monk strap shoes.

    I have other shoes but these are my best, and I'd like to get something new. But i'm not sure what i want or shoudl get .
    I would like something in Shell, but can't afford it, unfortunately.
    I was thinking maybe a brown calf wholecut from Meermin. I also had my eye on the C&J sydney, but again the price killed that idea. Then the loake fenchurch, but that was discontinued. Price is the biggest thing for me: the Cheaney, AE's, and the Church's were all factory seconds. Anyway, any help, as always, is much appreciated.

    Suede Captoe semi brogues of some sort - love that style, it's the perfectly versatile shoe.

    Or maybe have a look at Meermin's Rapello Suede, rubber soled Double Monk - I know people say they've totally jumped the shark but it's a classic style that I've always really liked and when the blogosphere hype dies down they'll go back to being just that - classic

    In conclusion - I'd say get a pair of Espresso or chocolate suede shoes of some sort

    Carmina. If you can't afford it, then wait until you can.
