Are you willing to buy used? If you know your size for different brands, and their lasts - you can get lucky on eBay or even thrift stores.Does anyone have any suggestions where to find a pair of burgundy or dark brown longwings, or black PTBs locally? You know...the kind with a nice thick sole and substantial welt. Hoping to find pairs that are not in the Alden-price range (meaning not that expensive). Thanks.
For LWBs, I like American or Canadian made Florsheim. Hanover is also a great brand. Vcleat.com has a list of the well made US footwear companies.
For Canadian brands, I look for Dacks, Hartt, John McHale... Any of the pairs made in Canada are extremely well made and are durable.
