Hey everyone,

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,

Michael

Do you mean Chelseas?
I wasn't really talking about these although after checking them out I may have to pick up a pair. They seem 'easy,' for lack of a better word.
In the Richmond area, you might want to check out these places:

Saxon Shoes Inc. at Short Pump Town Center

Myrna's Boots'n'Bits (a Western & English riding store with a decent boot selection) - 1112 Carmia Way, Richmond, VA
I knew about Saxon but not the boot store. It seems enticing. I'll definitely have to check it out.

Calling in sick to attend a job interview?

 First of all let me explain why I want to quit my current job.*A few months ago I asked for more challenges and told my supervisor I wanted to learn more. She said I could get training etc... I didn't get those (they were looking into things). They don't give me the chance to learn new techniques. I have the feeling I'm stuck in this job and have reached a plateau-phase on my learning curve. I don't have the feeling I'm making any progress.*Communication between supervisors and staff is poor…See More
