Since discovering the various recommended makes of quality footwear here on the Forum, I've been searching for a place to try and buy some new shoes. I've popped into my local Neimans, Saks and Nordstrom which carry the usual Guccis, Ferragamos and Pradas, which all seem very expensive (for what you get). Nordstrom did have a selection of Santonis which I liked (but had rubber soles). Any ideas where I might find a pair of Crockett & Jones, Cleverly, E. Green or similar ilk in this town? I find the Alden, Allen-Edmonds are a tad bit "frumpy" for my taste. Do I need to make a trip to LA or NY? I am particularly interested in a slight chisel box toe Balmoral or Brogue or even a Chelsea boot or Monk of high quality and comfort. Thanks for the help.
