Another Oxford shoe thread, I know, I'm sorry. I'm looking for some targeted advice, so hopefully you guys can help. In the pursuit of some serious shoe game, I've picked up a couple decent brown/tan/walnut pairs. Now, I'd like to finally replace the godawful black split toe beater pair that I use to rock to church every Sunday since my feet stopped growing. Budget: ~$300-400 = willing to invest Color: Black Style: Oxford / Balmoral / Blucher Toe: Plain toe or Cap toe (no Brogue'ing) Something very simple and unornamented to wear with a suit for more formal occasions. The trick is, I'd like a more elongated look (last), with a bit of a "bend" to the toe, if that makes sense. I DID check out the AE Park Avenues online, but they are rounder and fuller than I'm looking for. Didn't see anything else in the AE stable that would fit the bill. Similar to: Any brands to recommend? I'm not in a rush, so I can wait for a sale. But price is less of a concern than materials, construction, etc. I really appreciate the insight. Thanks!
