Men's shoes

I'm planning to get two pairs. One of them is probably going to be AE Park Ave (according to what I've read here). What should the other one be?

Park Aves are great. What type of shoe do you want for the other pair? Same color or different? Need more info to advise.

Well in that case, you should have a ton of options.

Allen Edmonds will cost you around £300-£360 in the UK. For the same price you can get Grenson, Barker, Cheaney, Carmina, etc. A bit cheaper and you can buy Carlos Santos, Loake, and similar. A bit more, and you can buy Crockett and Jones, Alfred Sargent, etc.

Lots of options, just depends on what style you want. The quality is pretty similar all over. I do like my AE strands and park avenues for their quality - quite good construction and leather, but the lasts are a bit too shapeless and blobby for my taste.

Aren't Meermin's made in China...seems like it may lead to size inconsistencies and difficulty even getting sized in the first place?
