Allen Edmonds isn't just for dress shoes. I work in a high school and you can imagine the kind of punishment my shoes have to deal with. They are called Ashton and cost $329. Well worth the money. Thick rubber sole (without looking lame), solid craftsmanship, goes great with jeans or dress pants. Fits well with crew socks, which keeps my toes warm. Never slips even on wet concrete.
And yes, can be recrafted. They really are well made.
After seven years of SD, I've come to conclude that Slickdealers are protein-powder guzzling, pistol packing, cheap-ass video game nerds.
Those are some serious money though. There must be something in between.
There are many brands that make dress shoes in between, but Florsheim probably covers that market more than anyone. You can find Florsheim's on sale quite often.
Yup Dont waste your money on these type of shoes from kmart payless. buy real leather and good quality that will last. i have bought shoes from payless kmart even marshalls and they all end up breaking apart.
Unless my store is different, Marshalls only sells name brand shoes, which you can find many places, in contrast to Thom McAn's being exclusive to K-Mart and Sears, nowadays. I've never owned a pair of McAn's, but outside of their man-made uppers, they don't look bad.
I don't wear man-made uppers, though. I'm certainly not a snob, but I've just never seen a dress shoe with man-made uppers that was comfortable or lasted very long. You can find some nice leather dress shoes for $40-50 on sale and they'll last long 2-3 times longer than shoes with synthetic leathers. Of course, they're also more comfortable and look better, too.
