Deal Details

Allen Edmonds Park Avenue bounce

$280.78 (Amazon.com [amazon.com]) - $56.16 (20% Amazon Shoe Discount [amazon.com]) + F/S (Amazon Prime Free Trial [amazon.com]) = $224.62

I'm assuming that if you ended up here, you understand that Allen Edmonds Park Avenues typically range from $280 - $350 on an average day.

Amazon has an actually VERY impressive selection right now despite being only ion Black and Merlot. They got all lengths from 6.5 US to 13 US and most widths from 3A to 3E in stock. shake head

CA, AZ, KS, NY, ND, KY, PA, WA, TX will get taxed on this purchase vomit

^Nope. The PA's go perfect with that typical business casual environment that you described. In fact, add the PA's to your existing attire and that's pretty much the standard at my office.

Why did Italian stuff come up here? Gucci? Really?

It depends on what is being prioritized here -- quality or fashion. It can be argued that Italian brands have a more style (IMO, they're hideous)...but are you really going to strut into your cubicle in alligator Gucci loafers? For me, I'm not going walk into a room of fellow roboticist with Gucci anything.

Made-in-US brands (i.e. Allen Edmonds, Alden, Red Wing, etc.) offer the highest of quality and some of the best warranties on the market. If you wanna be Gucci Mane or Waka Flocka Flame, then go Italian and go Gucci. If you'd like a respectable and quality shoe, Park Avenues are one of few great American-made choice.

Exactly. Not to mention the blanket statement of Italian being superior? Really? So why does Armani sell fused suits for $2000? British tailoring tradition is also fantastic.

the whole "italian being better than american" blanket statement definitely feels like someone who doesn't really know that much about fashion or shoes trying to sound knowledgeable.

fifth aves and park aves are great shoes that will look good for a long time. nice price too. TU to OP.

one of the things i like about conservative shoes like this is that they're never quite "on trend" so they dont end up dating themselves ... like the square toed dress shoes most guys bought from banana when they needed office shoes.

I dont really advocate showrooming but you can see these in person at nordstrom's, AE stores, and jos a bank.

Not sure why Italy was mentioned more than once in this thread. American shoe makers make great shoes (Alden). And I am sure English shoes are even better.
finally, somebody mentioned Alden! Great shoes too! Especially, in cordovan leather!

I work in a business casual environment and currently wear JM rubber soled shoes. My typical outfit is wool or wool blend pants with a button up dress shirt (Brooks Brother or Charles Tyrwhitt) and no tie. Is fhe black Park Avenue too dressy of a shoe for my need?
Non-black PA certainly would work. Or maybe start with MacNail, the most casual AE laceup shoe I can think of.

The MacNeil is a good choice, but there are lots of other more casual AE models...if you consider their rubber-soles options. I generally prefer the leather-soled/stacked models myself, but in a business casual environment, something like a Berkshire or Big Sur might work better (and they'd be cheaper - both are on clearance at AE's site).

Also - I have a pair of black MacTavishes, which I consider fairly casual. Could probably wear them with a suit, but I think they go rather well even with jeans.

We're all happy you got a better deal. Only problem is that it's not last September any more, and you can't assume that the old deal will come around again. Just about every good deal on this board has been better at some point in the past.

If there was a better deal at one time in history, that doesn't mean this isn't still a great value for the money.

How are these to Cole Haan? All my shoes are Cole Haan but I would be willing to try a different brand.

Re price I'll add my "go for it". I've been wearing AEs for 30+ years, as my bro in law is in the upper end mens wear biz. Of course, he doesnt have the buying power of these guys, but even for good sized dept stores this price is very close, if not below, their cost. If I recall correctly, AE charges almost $200 to refurb a pair. (reburbs turn out amazing, btw)

Let's see how many get this analogy: If Cole Haan's were a fancy calculator, then AEs would be an HP-12C Smilie
