What's the price range?

I have a pair of black Campanile captoes, that for the money I paid (off the forum, it was a steal at $95.00, but would have gladly paid more than double), that in my mind are ideal captoes.
They are not overly sleek, nor suffering from the bulbous nature of AE's.
Very well constructed out of nice leather.
I'd look into a pair of Campanile's.

I would hardly call the AE Park Avenue bulbous. In fact, the AE Park Ave is very, very sleek.

My complaint with the park ave and i am pretty sure its been discussed here is that the cap is just a bit to small for the shoe. Personally I like the Sorrento or the Sienna from Romano Martegani and have been thinking about getting one for myself as i don't own a black cap toe now.
