    Dress shoes (and sales in general)

    Looking for dress shoes.

    Probably don't want to spend more thank HKD2k. Don't like M&S, Zara, etc.

    Went to Lane Crawford yesterday, cheapest end was around HKD3k.

    Is my budget too low?

    Also anyone seeing any discounting at the moment, esp with lack of sales with shops?

    Wing On in Central usually has very good sales (quite often close enough to Amazon pricing) on the usual Rockport / Florsheim and other usual retail+ type brands.

    No clue if these are suitable for you or not ... even the Mrs complains that my shoes are "ordinary" and that is the mild version..

    I think Tassels in Landmark has a sale, or the shop next to it. I noticed the sign yesterday. I've been getting my dress shoes from Taobao, a small outfit that handmakes them in GZ, but they are probably still closed. Prices are under $1500

    If you're not in a hurry, find out the size and style you want in local shops and order online

    If you're not in a hurry... I usually have them made by a guy in tst (old arcade behind the Sheraton).
    I can find the name of the shop/guy if you're interested.
    It's about 1500.

    FYI Harvey Nick's has a decent sale on. Picked up a pair of dress shoes for under HKD800.

    I found this shop in Milan and get most of my new shoes/boots etc here now...love them.

    good quality, reasonably priced. Think they were featured in Monocle and Esquire, but dont hold that against them.

    Thanks for recommends, will keep them in mind for future.

    Bought another pair of shoes from Harvey Nicks for just over HKD850.
