We are firmly of the belief that, unless you have to wear a suit to work every day, you need to own but two pairs of legit dress shoes. The first is a plain black cap-toe for more formal events like weddings and funerals and maybe a job interview if the industry dictates as much. The second is a less formal option in brown with some sort of broguing that can be dressed up or down.

Allen Edmonds, makers of fine American-made footwear since 1922, are currently running a sale on their Heritage Classic Collection that’ll get you 20% off two pairs of shoes that perfectly fit the criteria listed above. Observe:

Park Avenue Cap-toe Oxford
Perhaps the most iconic men’s shoe ever produced. We could easily make the argument that every man should own a pair.

BUY IT NOW: $340

Strand Cap-toe Oxford
Pair these with a suit or a pair of jeans, and you’re guaranteed to notice at least one person stealing a glance every time you wear them.

BUY IT NOW: $340

And that’s it. You’re done. You now have two pairs of shoes that will never go out of style and that, if cared for properly, will last a lifetime. Well done, sir.
