    Looking for brown suede shoes/boots

    Lately I've really been wanting a pair of brown/chocolate suede shoes. Well, actually, I might want a pair of boots a bit more, but it seems like all I can find are shoes.

    The Neumok by Allen Edmonds seem to be the only shoe that fits the bill:

    In all reality though, I was looking for a knockaround pair of shoes (think $100-150 range). Unless AE ran a huge sale this weekend and these shoes were included I likely won't pull the trigger on them.

    Any suggestions?

    Well if you are willing to splurge to $220, check out Meermin. They have a substantial amount of brown (and black) suede shoes in oxfords, bluchers, monk straps and loafers. They are high quality and a great product.

        Hey, I'm new here but I was in the exact situation you were, looking for a brown suede shoe. I wanted a low cut rather than a boot. I'm not sure where you are located but do you have a Clarks outlet nearby? I found these for $60 there. They're not as reddish as this photo suggests, more of just a straight brown. They also have a boot variant.



        I really like them so far. The Clarks outlet had a few different kinds of brown suede shoes. Some cool ones with a seam down the middle if you like that look.

          Contact the AE shoe bank. I just bought 2 pairs of seconds for $300, and the neumoks in the snuff suede(which is the brown) was on the list in size 9D. You could see if they have some in your size too.

          They mentioned they were doing another sale for Black Friday, so you could email them then and see what the offer is.

            AE shoe bank? I'm not familiar with that. I know I don't have a factory store (where people tend to get seconds) anywhere near me. I'll send them an email though. Thanks for the tip.

              The shoebank is a large warehouse of AE shoes not out at the factory stores, they generally have a large inventory of seconds. You can shoot them an email at [email protected] requesting inventory in your size and they will send you back a spreadsheet. I believe they are closed today, but will be running a BF sale tomorrow.

                  Saw those when Joe posted about them the other week. Suppose I'm a little hesitant to jump the gun on an unknown brand just yet. Not to mention, those are nubuck when I would prefer suede.

                    The chukka version of these were featured on the main site a few times. I have them in grey, they're pretty nice:

                    I also have the gorilla chukkas in brown and they're pretty nice (esp for the price), but I don't think that they are available any more.

                      I'm looking for something with brogueing. So plain chukkas don't work.

                      I ended up picking up a pair of the boots Joe mentioned in today's post. Wanted the dark brown but they don't have my size as it's recommended to size down. Gave the tan ones a try. We'll see how I like them in person. http://dappered.com/2012/12/most-wan...december-2012/

                        Picked up the light brown/tan ones as well and they had both in my size when I ordered. IMO better looking than the darker pair but the size selection would seem to indicate others don't agree with me. The lighter color makes the broguing more noticable which I like.

                          bah! As it always happens, as soon as I buy a pair, I find almost exactly what I was looking for: http://www.jcrew.com/mens_feature/to...Xujywa317J0Z2w

                          That said, the Cole Hahns are great so far. EXTREMELY comfortable with Nike Air technology in the soles, suede is soft and they look great. Slightly darker than photos which is a plus for me. Not to mention the soles are leather and resoleable.
