    Hi everyone,
    I'm looking to purchase a pair of dark brown brogues of good quality that will hopefully last me for some time. I would like to use them both as casual and work shoes. I am willing to spend some money, but let's say no more than $600-700. What's your pick within this price range? Any favorites or suggestions?

    Balmoral. I guess I'm looking more for casual.


    Half or full.

    Balmorals are more formal. Bluchers are open-laced (with the flaps).

    Was going to say the C&J Finsbury, but you changed your mind about the closure.
