    So I love Justin Fitzpatrick and Septieme Largeur, but I live in Boston not London or Paris. I could order online, but I am interested in trying some styles that I have not been a fan of before (I'm a boot guy but want to expand).

    Any places in Boston I should consider or just go online with the the brands I like (met both Justin and Mathieu, great guys, great shoes)

    There is a Allen Edmonds on Newbury Street, but is there anything else?

    Mr Sid in Newton has a nice selection of Edward Green among others (paraboot etc..). They also have made to order with EG and another brand they do bespoke with (bettanin and venturi I believe). There are also trunk shows if you sign up for their emails.
    Their website is basically non existent so you would need to go there. Very nice place.
    Andrew @andrewmrsid is part of this forum and other members here have purchased shoes there.

    Based on the little on the Mr. Sid website, I think they are on the high end of my price range. But that looks like a great place, I'll keep any eye out for trunk shoes of less established brands if they have that sort of thing.

    I only mentioned EG because thats what i had looked at over there. They do have a range of different brands for shoes which may or may not be what you are looking at. Worth a look if you are around there. The website unfortunately is useless unless you want to buy a gift card. Just sign up for the email list and you will get info on any upcoming trunk shows.

    Paraboot are a bit expensive. I would have to love everthing about it and be assured that this is worth it, compared to say cheaper items form Justin Fitzpatrick and Septieme Largeur. For example I could get a pair of MTO balmoral or button boots for about that price... And I am a boot guy at heart. That being said the 'OSCAR patiné blue' looks lovely. And from what I read Paraboot are well made and well finished
