    If you're gonna own just one pair of casual shoes, these have gotta be it. All black, please.

    I'm getting there:

    Redwing Beckman 9016
    Topsiders (why aren't more people mentioning these?)
    Black cap toe
    Cordovan wingtips
    New Balance something or other (gray of course)
    Birkenstocks

    I need some cordovan loafers, and a pair of lined 10" Bean boots or something from Caleb's list. Also want a pair of Red Wing 3140's.

    Darren can wear those because he is Darren. He is Baller, not the shoes.

    I also don't have the good fortune to be a woodsman from Maine or a successful merchant from Red Wing, MN, but its not stopping me there, either.

    My shoes need more attention. I just bought these, which are a big improvement over my old bucks:



    They look great with chinos and will look great with jeans.

    Double monks are growing on me, I don't care if I'm too square for them. Anyone know who makes a pair in burgundy calf with a plain toe for a semi-reasonable sum? Basically these, just without the cap.

    -AE Oak street cap toes with sweet dianite red soles - wearing today!
    -Alden Indy boots, black
    -Alden cap toes, cigar brown - probably my most worn shoe
    -AE strandmoc
    -AE park ave, black - the suit shoe, generally
    -Red Wings beckmans, in that dark deep red. these are just starting to break in nicely
    -New Balance ML754, red - i live in these on the weekends.

    honorable mentioned goes to my Hoka one-one challenger ATR3's. best running shoes i've ever used. ran a half marathon in them this year and shooting for a full in 2018.

    Okay, I cannot play this game. Here is why: Special use shoes (ignoring duplicates).

    Road cleats
    Mtb/cyclocross cleats
    Eroica/legacy cleats
    Running boots
    Hiking/backpacking shoes
    Skiing xc
    Reinforced-toe work shoe
    Waders
    Knee boots

    I haven't even gotten to "regular" shoes yet.

    BTW, the op clearly lives in a paved environment, works an office job, and (his servants) spend way too much time with a boot brush. Even my Red Wings get beat up quickly just knocking around, and I take care of them.

    To answer my own question in case anyone else was/is interested, Paul Evans is doing a run: https://www.paulevansny.com/products...-strap-oxblood

    Although the list price at $400 is a little steep, there's a 25% discount for pre-ordering, and a $50 discount for joining the email list. Assuming those discounts can be combined, they're only $250, which seems pretty reasonable given the reviews they've been getting.

    Paraboot “Michael” is a very versatile shoe to slot into the mix I find. In dark brown they can be dressed up or down depending on the circumstances.
