So, I don't have unlimited funds, and need a brown oxford lace-up this week. I'm probably going to order from Zappos. Originally, I was going to get this shoe from J Crew, but it won't ship until 5/28: http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product...atId=cat180084 I love the shine and the dark brown color. So, which of the following are adequate substitutes? http://www.zappos.com/n/p/p/7323951/c/537.html http://www.zappos.com/n/p/p/118124/c/216.html Rockports are generally ugly, but this one doesn't seem too bad. I don't like the squared-off toe, but it's not too extreme. It doesn't have the lustre of the Bostonion or the J Crew, though. The Bostonion doesn't look as comfortable, and looks slightly more dressy. I thought I might be able to find something from AE's in this classic style and color, but was disappointed by their selections and styles. Actually, I've had a very difficult time finding any shoes that approximate my original choice. If anyone has some suggestions I'd love to hear. I will be wearing them with chinos as well as wool slacks, in a business casual environment.
