AMEN now answer the question. I want to talk about fancy shoes. Not get a new pair at payless every 3 months. :pop:

Florsheim makes shoes up to size 14 for many of their styles, and they offer wide width. You could also look at the products from Hitchcock Wide Shoes for Men (http://wideshoes.com/). They have a variety of dress shoes up to size 15 or 16 and up to 6E in width.

I've had the same Bass black no racist square tips for a few years and they've been great.

Also, I typically buy at discount stores, and that's a mistake. Shoe investments are worth it for high quality.

Update: these Magnannis are super comfortable. Have received many compliments. Very happy with my purchase.

Do you mean patent-leather glossy? If so, they would be fine to wear them with a tuxedo.


The chukka boots may be utilized around the house (i.e., grass cutting, outside painting, changing oil, etc.) but I'd say the corfams would be better suited as a donation to Goodwill or something like that.



These are the corframs, I'm probably going to throw them away next time I come across them. They've got enough wear and storage dings that I couldn't wear them in uniform, let alone anywhere else:

The chukka boots I bought specifically for my wedding and never wore them again. I wear a 14 dress shoe, so in the box they take up some prime real estate in the closet, but I don't want to part with them. Wish I could find a use for them in civilian attire.

They would be horrifically bad for grass cutting, etc. ;) I still have my combat boots that I wear riding the motorcycle or when knocking down brush or something, I assume that's what you were picturing.

I have a pair of Bostonions I wear with suits and more formal stuff, and some other brown oxfords I wear around the office.


Uh, yeah. Didn't realize your chukka's were so snazzy.
