    Hey Guys,

    Quick question for you, I saw these shoes :

    http://www.colehaan.com/colehaan/catalog/product.jsp?catId=100&productId=528738&productGroup=528739

    I like the style and look of them, but from what I've read on here $250 for CH's is not worth it.

    That being said, any recommendations on where I can get something like that? Style/Color?

    I really would like to stay under $300 if it's a good quality pair, but if it's something like the CH's around $100-$125 seems like good pricing based on what I've read on here, correct?

    I live in Toronto, but once I can try them on here I work between here and New York so if anyone has any recommendations I can buy it online and ship there.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    Have a look at what Allen Edmonds has on sale. http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonlin..._1_image_0_N_127607_127607_130263_subcategory
    Stay away from Cole Haan 'Air' anything because their heels have an air bladder inside (hollow) and once you wear through the heel to the air bladder, they are done unless you fill that hole with Shoe Goo, and then it looks stupid. Allen Edmonds uses far superior materials and leathers and most models are recraftable.
