    Shoe Brand Quality Rankings



    So I was wondering how people would rank the quality of certain brands of shoes in terms of quality. It seems like the general consensus is that Allen Edmonds are the best and last the longest while other brands like Kenneth Cole are somewhat flimsy.

    Almost any shoe brand that is made by hand is going to be a quality shoe. Allen Edmond, Alden, Edward Green, and Church's are just a few examples of top quality footwear.


    A good rule of thumb is to see where the shoe is made. If it says made in the U.S.A or made in England it's probably a pretty good shoe that's going to last you a very long time.

      To add to Alberts note, buying shoes from company's that dabble in other realms, ie, Kenneth Cole, Gucci (yes, even the high end stuff), you may enf up with a crappy shoe. Those guys are concerned with getting you a great shoe built on a great last, they are just trying to gain market share, and probalby outsource thier production to the Chinas of the world. This isnt to say that you should break the bank to buy great shoes, you must "Get in where you Fit in"

        Are there any quality brands that come in under $100?

          I would avoid Kenneth Cole like the plague...notoriously bad quality.


          The key to getting good shoes is being patient enough to wait for them on sale...for instance, you can get overstocks of Allen Edmonds for a much lower price if you call their customer service line or look out for them at Nordstrom Rack. Also pay attention to discounter sites like 6pm and endless.


          If you want to go down a level, then Florsheim, Cole Haan, and Johnston and Murphy have quality shoes. Unfortunately, they also have some awful shoes as well. A few things to look out for that may hint that a shoe is of higher quality are: 1)full grain calf leather (as opposed to corrected grain), and, 2)Goodyear Welting (means the shoe is actually welted to the sole, not glued...which means you can replace the sole more easily when it wears out).

            BYC, you might be able to pick up a pair of Allen Edmonds on ebay under $100.
