Nice choice with the baxters. I posted some real life pics of the exact same shoes, if you use the search option they'll come up. I've really enjoyed them thus far. Eagerly awaiting spring to bring them back out.
Very nice! I really wanted to pull the trigger on those. They look great. I was trying to put my finger on why those appeal to me so much, and I believe it's the contrast between the peachy tan leather and the natural welt.
Absolutely, I haven't gone through the process, but I would try to make sure they look into what I'm going to receive. That being said, i'd never expect something like that get overlooked. Or in this case, not looked at, at all.
I don't think anything beats the guy who receives two different colour shoes. A different size is one thing, someone could wear those, who they actually fit. These kinds of situations are discouraging for people in Canada, like myself, or other countries trying to utilize the shoebank. Both situations would be a huge pain in the ass.
Mine seem to be shorter than the Park Ave's I have, which worked out fine for me. In terms of width, I sized up to a 3E and they fit fine, slightly larger than the E width I have with the PA. I take a size 14, which is slightly large, but 13 would be too small, so I find the Black Hills have been a good pick up. That being said, i've only worn them out once since getting them a week ago.
I've loved how all of these Eagle County's have turned out. I still can't believe people got these at the clearance price, they are all wonderful looking boots, quite versatile too. At $395 with the waived MTO i'd even call that a great deal. Just looking at the regular Eagle County, you would never know such nice boots could produced out of them. It's partly AE's crappy photos, and and the choices people have made when ordering them.
Is it just me, or has three identical posts popped up from three different and relatively new accounts inquiring about having black Park Avenues and walnut Strands, and needing to build up their wardrobe/shoe collection? Surprised no one else has seemed to notice this.
Received a pair of Black Hills today. Got them on Ebay, I believe they were seconds, but can't find any major defects. The distressed areas and cracks on the right shoe are slightly more pronounced than the left, so maybe that's it. Fortunately they fit quite well, and much better than the Park Ave's I have, oddly enough on the same last. I can't wait for the snow in Toronto to melt to start rocking em.
