Last year for Christmas/Birthday I got a $200 gift card from my mom to Banana Republic. She got the card because she knew I used to shop there in the past. I have gained about 60 lbs since I last shopped there so even their largest clothes are a size or two too small for me. I am working out and loosing weight (lost 30 lbs so far). Since the gift card is good for all sister stores like GAP, Piperlime etc I figured shoes would be the best thing to buy from there but their shoes all look lower quality and/or way over priced. So im looking for advice on what shoes I should get. I plan on buying nicer shoes a few months in to next year. Right now I usually wear khaki's with tears in the hem at the bttom, a polo with a bacon shapped color,and asaics running shoes to work (I know I know a sin.. The cat pissed on my only pair of brown shoes that i left out like an idiot). I do have a pair of black allen edmonds i bought used off ebay (they look like a cap toe with what you would call broughing I guess. So what do you think? do I buy 4 pairs of polos and boat shoes or get 1 nice pair of cap toe browns? Also if you could link a specific shoe that would be great. They seem to have all the shitty styles of the good brands and the nice styles of the cheap brands.
