I like Echo brand shoes in that price range.

It’s worth researching what fits really really well though. Advice online won’t work for that.

I’d say make it a creative learning activity and set a goal to try on x-number of shoes (maybe 20-50) and don’t purchase until you know your own feet and what shoes fit well.

Mine are particularly short, flat, and wide feet. Very few shoes fit me well unless they have a Wide or Extra Wide option. Olukai’s tend to fit my actual size (8 mens) /without/ the need for Wides. Otherwise, in the past I had to go to 8.5 or even up to 9 to get the width right. I don’t do that anymore. But point is, in my case, unless I’m going for a brand and model I already know, chances are *I will have to* try many shoes at many stores to get a particular need met.

I haven’t bought dress shoes in over six years, bc what I have that fits well is decent quality and of course, I rarely ever need to wear them.

So in any case, if your feet are easily fit by what manufacturers create, then great. Still, either order a bunch online, keep what you like and return the rest, or start becoming knowledgeable in person.

As for people judging for how you post… meh. I don’t know them. And I don’t know you. They don’t know you either.

Hope that helps!

You can find $200 shoes at Macys/JC Penny, even some basic ones at Nordstrom. $200 is not really considered “expensive”…seems to be more regular price this days. When I think of expensive, I think of Sacks, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Bergdoff, Nordstrom and boutique men shoe stores in nyc. I’d keep the budget to $1,000 and buy a couple pairs in different colors.

Ps I’m an immigrant as well, but it doesn’t stop me from liking high quality items and appreciating high end fashion.

Lessons learned from this thread:

- There are plenty of immigrant success stories (wonderful!)
- Good pair of shoes will probably run you at least $200-$250
- Self aggrandizing posts will get you Boom. Roasted
- You can’t buy class
- OP is not representative of Amazon
- OP doesn’t like sassy people apparently

Any thing else? Share below!
