It better start cooling off soon so I can wear boots. I have a pair of brown Higgins Mill boots on the way - I liked them since I first saw them so the sale price was a sign I needed them (that's my story).
Quick and dirty cell phone pics of my new navy suede Dundee 2.0 (on AE clearance). I will try to get better photos at home tomorrow night.
I am going to say this is one of my better "bang for the buck" AE purchases.
I am in the same boat. I bought some Randolphs and they really bit me on my instep. After a few wearings I couldn't take it any more. We hired a new kid out of college (I can say that since I'm 50) and he was asking about Allen Edmonds. Turns out he was the same size as me so he got some near new Randolphs (fit him like a glove) and a couple of other pairs of AE I hadn't worn in a while.Look at the Grayson if you don't mind a tassle. Those fit me fairly well. Maybe...
Mine aren't cordovan, but my Daltons are the same size as 99% of my other AE shoes on probably 10-12 different lasts and they fit great. I have some Long Branches and due to the poron insole they are a bit snug across the top but are not unbearable and get better with each wearing.Here are my chocolate DaltonsChris
