    I love suede shoes (and wear them almost exclusively) but I think it's time to diversify from all the brown shades and have decided I want a pair of Navy suede shoes. Which ones? Sutors are $300 from Ian D. and BBs are $373 on sale now.

    Mantellassi chukkas (I have several like this in Brown already):

    Mantellassi tassel loafers (I usually hate tassels but am strangely attracted to these):

    Peal/BB wingtips with crepe sole (I love crepe sole wingtips!):

    The Players Shoe by Allen Edmonds is quite wonderful in my uneducated opinion.

    From what I remember, the Peale shoes were way more costly than the AE Player's Shoe. I have the latter pair and I like them.

    I should have added a poll but it looks like overwhelming support for the chukkas. I really like them (and the blue shade looks different with a greenish tint, which is nice) but I already have three pairs of nearly identical brown suede ones. Decisions...

    What's this AE Player's you guys mention? Pics?

    Definitely the chukkas. The Peals are downright ugly. The loafers are, well, pimpin'--which may or may not be your look.

    All of them? lol I really like the chukkas and the tassels they really are pimp haha, but I think the first ones are more conservative (If blue suede can be conservative)

    Loafers [​IMG] I normally detest tassels, but this one won me over.
