I am building up my wardrobe and I am trying to do this on a reasonable budget... My next purchase is a pair of casual shoes. I currently own a pair of AE Park Ave in black, and a pair of grenson's captoes in mid brown....

I am considering a pair of driving shoes... I like the Too Boot ones. Is this a practical purchase. I am also considering a pair of Alden penny loafers. I don't mind spending money on shoes, but I have to make sure my purchases are wise.

I would love to hear people suggestions. I will be wearing these mostly at business school and out in the evenings afterward. My budget is around 300ish

thanks

it seems you can't go wrong with your choices.

I'm not sure I'd consider driving shoes a real "core" purchase. It would be lower down on my list (unless you can get them for 30 bucks from J. Crew).

How about some dark-brown bluchers instead? More casual than the PAs, in a color you don't have. The right ones could be dressed up or down.
