Goodyear welt shoes > all.

Yea but when Ferragmos go on sale, they are virtually the same price as a pair of regular priced AEs...so not a bad deal

I find the AE shoes' soles look too chunky in most styles, I really like the minimalist European style even if it's a bit more delicate.

Somewhat true. Ferragamo's Tramezza line does have a goodyear welt. However not really a fair comparison as it's well out of the price range.

I've got a pair of Magnanni loafers (leather soles, probably Bologna construction) which are minimalist (and very comfortable), but they're too delicate to wear outside the office, especially considering our weather. They are strictly a summer shoe for me.

I have a pair of AE Cliftons and they are quite slim in profile and not out of place with contemporary slim fitting dress pants.

- Shoe trees to retain shape when not wearing them
- A quick brush of the shoes before putting them on (I usually keep a brush in my office and at home)
- Full polish once the shine starts to go away
- Leather conditioner to repel moisture

I keep the nice pairs in the office and wear old shoes or water-resistant boots on the commute to work.

Stupid me, never thought of this before. Instead of lugging around my nice dress shoes in a separate bag going to work, I'll start doing this instead.
