I'm looking to step up my black shoes pretty soon here.
Suggestions? The allen edmonds are amazing but i'm not a fan of spending more than about $150 on shoes (though the varvatos ran me around 180)
I like Cole Haan for the ~$150 price point. They might run you a little more than that.
Honestly, though, the AE Park Avenue black are such a classy look and mine have lasted forever. Going on almost 6 years. I could stand to have them re-soled soon, but I bet I get 10 years out of them in the end. Like I said, though, I don't see them as an everyday shoe, so that obviously helps for lifespan. If you get 10 years, $350 is nothing.
