    Just got my first pair of saddles. Allen Edmonds Shelton, walnut on dark brown. I don't know what to wear them with, I just love the shoes though. Anybody got pics on how they wear their saddles?

    Thanks

    Wear 'em with chinos and a polo or sockless with shorts.

    Here are some pics. What about dark denim? Hopefully these pictures are acceptable.

    I'm about to buy these as well, anyone know of any better deals than the $350 they are priced at?

    I second the notion that chinos, dark jeans, and certain brown and navy pants look good with these types of shoes.

    you can look to eBay and sometimes find a steal for a new pair or one worn once or so

    I like to wear them with khakis and a polo. For occasions requiring a jacket, I wear them with an OCBD and blazer.

    I like the color of those shoes a lot. I do think that they would work better with denim if: they were bluchers instead of balmorals, the denim was darker than that in the picture, and the denim was a little more tapered. Regardless, those are nice looking shoes and I may have to check out a pair myself.

    I agree Bluchers could look better, but it's the overall outfit. I think with the cut of these jeans (although I would prefer a taper/straighter leg) the balmorals look fine. But that's without seeing the overall outfit :)
