    Would you guys mind if I asked for some help in here? Starting shoe collection, etc. Some of the major posters in here seem to reflect my preference, is all.

    I'm in Australia, so I'm suspecting our timezones are quite different. It'll be here when you get up, I'm sure.

    I'm a student in Australia at the moment, recently getting involved in shoes and the like, so I'm slowly building a collection. I work as a teacher in Design and Technology (Shop class to Americans, teaching woodwork, metalwork, welding, etc.). Being a student I'm on a pretty meager budget, so as much as I'd like to just buy copies of whatever I see here, I think I'll find it hard to scrape up the cash. I was hoping all of you might be able to recommend some more affordable solutions for me, in makers or specific shoes, if you like. I'm happy to go to around $200-250 AUD a pair, which is around $275 USD/150 GBP/175 EUR. Only problem is I'm a wide fitting, a G or E/EE, which makes the search a bit harder. I'll eat shipping on top of that. I find my tastes lean towards a chisel toed shoe, or one with a dull point, I'll get a few links going to make myself clear.

    etc, etc. I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this. I'd be grateful for any help you all may be able to shed on the subject, if not, I shall continue my search.

    Most of those I own (and the middle two are me) - the C&J Westbournes you can find in your range if you are patient on eBay or B&S, surely. The G&G wigmores and Carminas, can't help you with those though! :)

    Friday's pair...Ferragamo Resort Gusset Loafers in brown calf. My go-to slip ons when I'm in a hurry. Scored these and a pair in black from B&S a few months ago.

    Today's pair...vintage black (maybe faux) alligator or crocodile split toes by some brand called Artmex. Got these off eBay last week for a song. Not sure if they're real or embossed.

    Spoo: is there a specific distributor that sells the G&G Wigmore with the pebble shaft? When I do a search all I find are suede...
