      Not many, I don't have a huge need. I want another pair of boots (maybe Clarks DB or AE Daltons) just because I like them but the only other big hole I see is a pair of nice brown dress shoes (I'd like the Fifth Avenues). I'd like a pair of grey shoes but I didn't like the Florsheim No-String Wings in person so I'm okay waiting. What I have:


      New Balance gym shoes

      Sebago Hamilton boots (brown)

      Sebago Docksides boatshoes (waxy/oiled brown)

      Bostonian brown wingtip beater dress shoes

      AE Park Avenues black

      AE Players walnut

      AE Malvern brown suede

                  AE Park Avenue in merlot

                  AE Neumok in olive

                  AE Seventh Avenue

                  AE Fifth Street in Dk. Brown

                  AE Neumora in Dk. Brown

                  Clarks Bushacre II in Dark Brown

                  Clarks Bushacre II in Grey Suede

                  Gucci loafer in black

                  Gucci single monk strap in light brown

                  Ferragamo driver in brown

                  Ferragamo loafer in navy suede

                  Bally single monk strap in black

                  Saks brand suede bucks

                  Prada drivers in tan suede

                  Random Nikes (maybe 3-4 pairs) for ultra casual days and working out.

                  Forgive all the "fashion" brands. They're from a time when I didn't know anything about quality to price ratio and just bought for name, and have since converted to AE and maybe Alden in the future. But I do still love the fashion brand shoes and can't see it in me to part with any of them.

                    @Bobby and Sigtweed, many of us jumped on AE's 2 for $200 sale earlier this year. It was mostly seconds, but man I couldn't pass that up.


                    @VanLu, no matter what people say about fashion brands, Ferragamo tends to make damn good looking drivers and loafers.

                          @Norm: What cream/polish/etc. do you use for your shoes, esp. restoring those McAllister's? They all look phenomenal.


                          Good Dress:

                          AE Player's Walnut (2 for $100 deal)

                          AE Player's Snuff Suede ("")

                          Church's Custom Grade Burgundy Oxfords (like so: http://i.ebayimg.com/t/Churchs-Custom-Grade-genuine-leather-cap-toe-oxfords-made-England-8-5-C-/00/s/MTIwMFgxNjAw/%24T2eC16J,!)sE9swm(wBWBQNbqBNEC!~~60_57.JPG) ($100 on eBay)

                          AE Fifth Avenue Black ($125 on Style Forum B&S)


                          (In the future: A pair from www.meermin.es and maybe some Neumora's if I get the balls to buy them for the labor day sale)


                          Beater Dress:

                          Florsheim Loafer Brown $70

                          Florsheim Loafer Black $70 (got both these for xmas, but I'll count the cost here)


                          Casual:

                          Sebago Moss Green Boat Shoes from Bonobos (using $50 off first $100 purchase)

                          Puma Blue Suede Sneaks ($30 at Puma outlet)

                          Black Chuck's ($30)

                          Nike Golf Shoes (gift)

                          Nike Air Tiempo Cleats (bought customized in high school for $150)

                          Still need a pair of suede bucks and some more dress shoes, but not bad for what I've paid (or so I hope...)

                            Never owned a pair of AE's and rarely dress up so I haven't been able to justify them yet but maybe next time around.

                              @aglass: Posted on another forum and I'll post it here.


                              The procedure:


                              1. Disinfect shoes with Lysol spray, inside and out. Wipe down to dry.

                              2. Wipe down inside and out with Lexol leather wipes. If sole is leather wipe that down too.

                              3. Spray Lexol leather cleaner on cloth and wipe down whole shoe, inside and out to get rid of all the embedded dirt. Product might have specific instructions on how to use.

                              4. Soak a cloth with rubbing alcohol and wipe the exterior of the shoe. You are doing this to get rid of all the built up polish, it also prepares the leather for conditioning.

                              5. Spray leather conditioner on the shoes, spread it around with your fingers. Massage out the wrinkles. Do the same with the inside.

                              6. Insert shoe tree while the leather is still wet with conditioner. Let it dry overnight. Depending on how bad the shoe is, you might have to repeat this process. I had to do this 3 nights in a row for the McAllister's toe to stop curling up.

                              7. Shine your shoes. 2 - 3 coats of Meltonian followed up by a coat of Kiwi in the color of your choice. Depending on the shoe, I also "bull polish" the noses to give it that extra kick.

                              8. Enjoy them!


                              @Sig: no need to find a reason to "dress up", I wear them with everything even shorts
