It’s on sale: Allen Edmonds — The American shoemaker is having their Rediscover America sale from now thru October 9th, with everything 15%-30% off at their site.
Probably the best deal right now is their Fifth Avenue captoe balmorals, which feature a strip of broguing across the toe but nothing more. A good shoe that’s easily worn with a suit or blazer, now on sale for $229 (down from $335).
For those of you with a more workwear vibe, the Long Branch wingtip boot is on sale for $269 (down from $350). It’s got a Vibram lug sole that would probably work very well to provide traction in rain, mud and snow during the winter. I think it’d go great with denim, casual chinos and maybe even tweed trousers.
