Shoes - my humble collection

I started buying nice shoes about a year ago, I'm hooked.

Front: AE Byrons, AE Fifth Avenue, AE McAllister
Back: J&M sneakers, J&M Dobson

The more I look at and wear the AE's, the J&Ms fall further out of my rotation. Plus they aren't holding up very well, the insole is starting to tear. These all get regular rotation at work. I did not include my yard mowing shoes, gym shoes and other utility shoes.



I think I'll try Alden's or C&J next. Thoughts? Nothing else in AE's lineup really interests me. I like the Strand and Fifth Ave in walnut, but those are really close to others I have already. I'd like something in chili, and something cordovan.

It's easier to try on Aldens than C&Js (if you're in the U.S.).

+1 on the Tetbury's. They are by far my favorite, and get the most wear. both office & outside.
