Hey guys, I am UK11.5EE. Tried jalan sriwijaya's Captoe oxfords in store but the last was too slim-fitting for me and the midfoot looked very chunky. Any recommendations for captoe oxfords for people like me? Have been looking at Allen Edmonds' Park Avenue but have no idea where to try them in SG.

Any loafers for work to recommend?
Big and wide feet. 11.5 E preferred.
Jalan Sriwijaya stocks sizes up to UK12. Their penny loafer looked pretty good to me.

How about earnest & collective? I have few pairs of their shoes and find they are quite comfy and lasting. They are an online store but I saw that they are having a pop-up store at Tanjong Pagar centre/Guoco Tower from 13 Jan - 19 Jan 2020, so you are able to try the shoe sizes before buying.

My earnest and collective sole gone in about 4 months of weekday usage. Rotation is a must.

Anyone tried Msia outlet TOMAZ? They got a wide range but im unsure bt quality.

My steptronic also crocodiled in half a year, my obermain 3 months sole become botak.

iíve tried CNES shoes. wouldnít recommend. while the shoe seems sturdy enough, the glue job quality is not up to par. money wasted on it.

Upper glued to the sole? Could you take some pictures to illustrate this?

For sneakers, New Balance for sure wins! Who uses NB at work?

ernest and collective is just an e-commerce equivalent of Aldo. Their shoes are cemented. If you wanna extend your sole lifespan, get it vibramed or dainited. rotation is not a must

My friends and I own a few pair of CNES shoes, this is the first that I've heard of glue coming apart.

Could you elaborate more or maybe attach a picture?
