    Semi-Casual Shoes



    First off I want to thank all of you, I have been following Dappered for the last 6 months or so and it has been a great benefit for my closet, maybe not my wallet.


    I am looking for a semi-casual shoe to wear with a blazer and jeans, not a chukka, I have 2 different pair of those. I do not know how to explain exactly what it is I am looking for, but I feel I will know it when I see it.

    @David: a blucher type shoe could be the cross between casual and business for you.

      How about a Wingtip? Some examples below from low to high:

        @acousticfoodie - not quite up on my shoe terms, is a blucher similar to an oxford. http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/cole-haa...resultback=349 is something I found.


        @Juan - thanks for the suggestions. I like the florsheim. Never owned AE, I know people here rave about them. The price hurts though...

          @David:


          Hey david, blucher is just a term for the construction of how the leather brings together the laces. The style that you linked to or another example is this:





          It is a little bit more casual (Although you could definitely wear nice polished bluchers for formal events b/c 99% of people won't even notice the difference) than a balamoral which where the flaps come together evenly at the laces like this:

            Maybe these? http://www.lastcall.com/p/Penguin-Wa.../prod12240004/

            There's a 40% off thing going on at last call right now and it stacks with FBOFFER ($25 off your $50 or more purchase) & FRSHIP (Free shipping with no minimum) so it comes down to a total of $41 + tax.

              What 's your price range?


              These are probably the most versatile shoes I own. They work with everything that isn't a suit (and I could probably get away with certain suits even):

                Those are both very nice shoes thanks @Ryan s and @kbrown. love the price on the lastcall website, just doesn't quite seem like it is pulling me in. the AE shoes are very nice, but I am looking to stay in the 100 or less category most likely.

                    Very versatile, since they can be easily dressed up or down. The come out to $94.40 shipped with the automatic 40% deduction when added to cart and combined with these codes: FBOFFER ($25 off your $50 or more purchase) & FRSHIP (Free shipping with no minimum).

                      So this morning I checked these out http://www.lastcall.com/p/Sebago-Sal...s/prod9700005/ they were only available in the 12, then just now there was apparently only 1 pair of 9's because once I ordered them it went back to 12's only. Thanks for the info on the extra codes! got them for 60 bucks shipped.
