    In keeping with your additions I would add:

    Clark's Wallabees

    and from a different tradition, the veldtschoen:

    Top 5 would definitely have to be, in no particular order.

    1). EG Dover
    2). Alden Longwing
    3). RL Marlow
    4). GG St James
    5). AE Park Avenue

    They get mentioned over and over again, despite coming from different levels of craftsmanship

    Not sure about the final 5, but here are the candidates:




    -AE Strand
    -AE Mora
    -RM Williams chelsea
    -Alden flexwelt chukka
    -Alden LHS loafer
    -Alden Indy
    -Corthay Arca
    -JL William
    -JL Jermyn
    -JL Phillip
    -EG Shannon
    -RLPL Mackay
    -RLPL Grant
    -Vass U-Last austerity
    -C&J Weymouth
    -C&J Belgrave
    -Bass Weejun
    -JM Weston loafer


    I didn't put the Gucci loafer on the list because I have seen many people say it's tacky.

    Carmina is meh.

    I think there are a few shoes in the list that are only 'iconic' or 'famous' due to deep discount sales frenzies.

    I see JM Weston is not much popular here. Had it been in Japan, lots of people list 180, Golf, Hunt and Chelsea boots.
