Allen Edmonds Long Branch Boot – $199.00 ($350)
Grey gets a lot of play around these parts. It’s classic, cool, and doesn’t shout. Even shoes in grey shades have gotten the thumbs up, but not all grey shoes look as good as others.

All credit to Allen Edmonds for staying current and trying new things. But a few of their grey shoes might not be complete home runs. They’ve just put three of their grey models on sale, each for $199 a pair. There’s the well known McTavish, a saddle shoe option, a new longwing, and these:
Also available in two shades of brown, but those aren’t on sale.
Moly. Those’ll do. They’re the Dalton with teeth. Grey, Goodyear-welted beasts with a Vibram lug sole ready to get you through the next 6 months.

Yes they are available in two outstanding shades of brown, but those are going for the full retail $350. And this grey pair? Honestly? Some may even prefer this shade change of pace.
