    Brogues <50

    Hi,
    I have been looking for some cheap brogues to wear on occasions when my work attire suits and also for the odd occasion out of the office too.

    Can anyone recommend or shoot down any of the following?;

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Handmade-Sam..._1769792031_53

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ben-Sherman-...herman+brogues

    I prefer the ben sherman ones as the soul/heel isn't as big and pronounced but get the sense thats the samuel windsor ones will be better quality. Also open to suggestions of other brands in this price range too.

    Thanks in advance

    I think the first pair looks a little nicer, but they're both good looking.

    Cheers guys. I think they'll both hold up OK, also seen these which I like, these are a duller/darker brown and more expensive at 55 with a code. Decisions...decisions

    I used to sell Hush Puppies. Some are excellent, but some have a really soft compound rubber sole that wears out in next to no time. Those ones look good though!

    Thanks Mr Bond, how do you tell that the soles are good on hush puppies?

    You can only really tell when they're in your hands, they sometimes use a really lightweight spongy rubber. The ones you linked to don't look like that though, I reckon they'll be fine.

    Not sure if you've bought any by now.

    What size are you? You could probably find some good stuff in the sales!
