    Black cap-toes



    So I got an email from Endless.com this morning with a 20% code for me, no limitations.


    I am getting married in May and need a pair of clean, simple, black, cap-toe balmorals.


    I'm down to get a nice pair, too. Something I will have for a while.


    Do I go for the AE Park Avenues:

    Or the Magnanni Diego Oxfords:

    I know the quality of the AE's are legendary, but the toe box for me is still a little bulbous.


    Decisions, decisions, decisions...

    I prefer the profile of the Parks myself, and (I think) AE quality is a notch above Magnanni. Since it's from Endless, you could order both to try on at home and return the one don't like as much.

      I dont think I would personally like those Magnanni's. The welt on them look as if they would push my foot forward and squish them into the toe box. I have wide feet, and I have to be aware of the welt on my dress shoes do to that reason. I have a couple AE's and love them. Great leather shoes.

          Dan, have you seen either of these in person? The Magnanni's are not very attractive in person - I had a chance to see them a few weeks back, I believe at a Nordstrom Rack.


          Keep in mind that the Park Avenues are classics. Four out of our last five presidents have worn them.
