I've been thinking about buying a pair of casual leather shoes/boots. (most likely brown) It's hard for me to explain what I want but I think that this community already knows what it is I'm talking about. I'm thinking of shoes that were more common in the 50's and 60's. If they are shoes I'd prefer laces but buckles will work and if they're boots I don't want them to be heavy duty work boots but more like the semi-cowboy boot ones. I want whatever I buy to work with a more upscale casual dress as well as jeans and a tshirt 'bumming around' clothes.
Now with that shoddy description I welcome comments that will lead me in the right direction towards QUALITY shoes. I know it's hard to avoid the chinese and korean manufactured shoes, (and I will buy them if I have to) but I really want something with solid threadwork etc. Anyway if you all know of a good website or a location in or around Richmond, VA I'd appreciate help because as of yet I can't think of anywhere other than the strip malls around here, which will, without a doubt, not have what I'm looking for. In the end if I have a good looking shoe that will last a couple years I'll be happy.
Thanks for reading my long and not-so-helpful post,

For the most part, he's been a good houseguest. He offered to pay…See More
