    Unhappy budget black leather shoes besides Bata's..

    Hi guys, does anyone of you know where I can buy a pair of black leather shoes?

    I am looking for:

    1. Price range around $70
    2. Good for walking as I am working as a video cameraman and photographer in my church
    3. also looks good enough to go for wedding functions
    4. durable

    My brother has recommended Hush Puppies but the price is like $150+ and I can't afford it. He recommended Bata after that but everyone knows what Bata stands for, "Buy And Throw Away". Bata. -_-"'

    Haha! And it's true la...their shoes never last. Telling by experience here.

    I would be really grateful if anyone can suggest a place or a brand I can get and hopefully, you'll be suggesting by your own experience or that of someone close to you.

    By the way, I'm staying in Woodlands area.

    Thank you! Thank you! Arigato! Thanks!

    Not all shoes will last very long nowadays, even the expensive one, best is to know where you can find a good cobbler, he will make your shoes last longer.

    Okay, I'm not sure about Woodlands area, but you can try Bugis. Parco Shopping area, 2nd floor, there is a shoe shop that sells men and ladies shoe, from UK, it's called 'Beetle Bug', and the price is quite okay too.... you can even get 15% discount if you make payment using UOB mini card, well, 30% discount for ladies who pay by UOB mini.

    I bought my wedding shoe there, and I just bought another working shoe last night, less than $60. Good.

    How about Domanchi at Bugis Junction. For $75 can get a very good looking leather shoe.

    Beetle bug from UK? Sure boh? I tot from SG? My female friends told me before. Their prettyfit card can be used at beetle bug for discounts. I got a pair for shoes and bag there. Design is not bad. When you go shopping at beetle bug, bring female friends.

    Best is still SAF no.3. FOC!
