    Affordable navy bucks with red brick sole?



    Anyone have any recommendations? Been looking for a pair for awhile, and the only ones I've seen are crazy expensive.

    Not sure what you mean by crazy expensive but:

    They've held up OK, although the soles are a bit soft (wear faster). They also get a bit hot for me (they're leather lined) but it's also my first pair of bucks. Otherwise I think the construction is great, they're super lightweight and comfortable. The first thing I did was change the laces out from white to red.

    My Measurements: 6' 1" height, 35" sleeves, 41-42" chest/jacket, 35" waist, 34" inseam, 11.5D/EEE shoes, 200 lbs

      Ah, thanks for the link - $130 is totally a decent price. Forgot to mention though that I'm looking for a non-wingtip buck (though if I don't find it, I might just end up picking up the Brennans).

        I'm in the market for a similar shoe (I'm returning the Asos ones I got.. Run smaller than the size they indicate) and the white stitching stands out to me a wee bit too much.

            I like those zappos ones save the sole. Makes it look too drab.

              @Jordan I agree plus brooklyn87 said he wanted red brick soles.


              I picked up a pair of these for about $138 when Brooks Brothers had their semi-annual sale in June but I ended up returning them because I couldn't justify the purchase at the time. That being said, great construction with leather lining and Goodyear welt soles. Unfortunately most sizes are gone now, but if you're not in any hurry then I think it'd be worth waiting for next year's model/semi-annual sale. You can also get free shipping if you call your local BB and order through them (if they don't have whatever it is you want in stock).

                Came out to about $136 with shipping for me.

                  Look up: Bass Brockton. ~60 bucks online. Saw them at a discount chain for $45. They are nice and simple
