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! :D

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. :thumbsup:

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