I bought a cheap pair of shoes yesterday. Retail therapy I guess you could call it.
I’m not sure I agree with the placement of the lower strap, but they didn’t have the one I wanted in my size, so I wound up with these. Which is exactly what you shouldn’t do when shopping — settle, just because you’re broke and a bit down. I imagine I’ll wear these in inclement weather as the cheaper leather looks like it can take it and the “leather sole” is sort of suspect in my book. Still, for less than USD$70, I can’t complain too much. Especially since I have yet to spend a day walking around in them.
For two hundred and some more, the best bet going is the Allen Edmonds Neumora. On sale now. Just a word to the wise.
