There was a long thread on these shoes, I believe in B&S. Worth reading through.

Try not to purchase something just because it's on sale. It usually leads to much regrets later. Quick rule of thumb I use is that if unwilling to pay retail for something, then I would probably not buy it even on sale. Also, allow yourself 24 hours to think it over.


That said, the particular shoe is limited because of the light tan color.

I got these and quite like them. They're more of a caramel color.

That might be good advice, but if I followed it I'd be all but naked! And unshod. Still, there are real dangers, esp. if you compromise on fit or other things, to buying impulsively just because the percentage mark down is high.

These shoes aren't bad, and caramel is a good description of the color.
