I have way more shoes and boots than leather jackets. IMO Alden shoes pretty much stand alone as the finest bench made shoe manufactured in the USA. The same is true for ML Leddy cowboy boots made in San Angelo TX and sold there and in their flagship store in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards. For a casual walking shoe, I am partial to the Mephisto Match that are also sold in narrow size to accommodate my 13AA canoe feet. Anyhow if I had to restrict my footwear to only three brands, those three would be what I would choose.
