    [​IMG] $259. Harry's of London dress shoes. Or in brown [​IMG] edit: i've never been able to figure out how to link gilt images correctly. anyone know? I'd be wearing these to interviews and possibly work, if formal attire is required. And the suit I have now is black, so I'm leaning towards the black.

    ^ delete the end of the url where it begins with a question mark (e.g. '?53_1305928485000')

    yeah.. but whatever. i decided against the shoes as i still have a decent pair of black shoes. $259 is still a lot of money to me as a recent college grad.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] CP sandals. $241 from ssense. Thoughts? I know CP is high quality, as I have a pair of mid-top sneakers which are quite comfortable, but does anyone know whether these sandals are comfortable? They're a relatively large purchase, and I'd like to wear these for 2-3 years.

    im a size 11, so i chose 44. do you think that would fit? i forgot the whole sizing issue with cps -- do i need a 45? i vaguely remember someone saying to size up when i bought my cp sneakers, but i dnt remember if they are a size 44 or 45, and theyre locked away in storage right now so i cant check.

    $259 is a lot of money to you yet you are willing to spend $241 on some sandals? Really?

    CPs are 1/2 too big so normally people size down. ie I am a 44.5 so I buy size 44, my brother is a 45 and he wears a 44. I would think the sandals would be either tts or a little big, you might be a 43 in those, but I bet the 44 will be fine. (11=44 12=45)

    can you not read?

    $259 was comparatively expensive because i already have a pair of decent dress shoes.

    i do not have any decent sandals.

    go pass your judgment somewhere else. thanks!

    just to clear things up, it kinda sounded like I have those sandals but I don't. I was just going off the Achilles sizing

    you should be ok in your true shoe size. i once ordered a pair of doma sandals in my true shoe size and they fit big(and looked big) because i was barefoot(obviously)
    sizing down might be ok as well, not sure. i havent worn sandals in years(besides trying on said doma's)
