    Going on a shoe binge! Need some help picking out some AE's!

    Ok, so I have a list of AE seconds, and I'm going to place an order. Of the list below, I would like to order 3 and keep 2.

    Park Ave Walnut grain
    Malvern Brown
    Malvern Brown grain
    Hamptons brown/brown
    Quinton Brogue (brown suede)
    Player dark chocolate suede

    This is the list I've already narrowed down, but I still need to remove 3 more . What are everyone's thoughts and/or opinions?

    Some things to keep in mind about shoes I already have or don't have:
    1.) I already have both dressy (walnut) and casual (oily brown) wingtips
    2.) I don't currently own any suede shoes whatsoever
    3.) I have a pair of AE Bagleys that have the general shape of the Malvern, but with a buckle instead of laces
    4.) I don't have a pair of brown balmorals, either dressy or casual
    5.) I don't own and grain leather shoes.

    I have a pair of walnut balmoral wingtips. So they're dressy, but in a color that's not as versatile. They're the only walnut shoes I own, though, and I do like them.

    There are 3 pairs of brown suede shoes up above: Malvern, Quinton, and Players. I'm sure I'll nab at least one, but which one (or two)?

    Ah...if you already have a pair of walnut dress balmorals...maybe the park avenue isn't necessary? I have a pair of Walnut strands and find that I much prefer and can wear them in situations over my walnut plain captoes:

    A very valid point. I think they're really cool (especially since they're grain leather), but if I'm not going to wear them then what's the point, right?
