Wingtip blucher, but not a long wing, that is a bit shorter than the Dalton. And it has the lug sole intead of leather. Somewhat distressed - kind of like the new darker brown Mctavish. In the photos they have red laces.
The boots didn't look to be that dark of a grey - they are kind of disressed where the grey is a bit lighter than the Park Avenue. Take a look at the Pierpont on the AE website - the grey is closer to that, but maybe just a tad darker than the Pierpont grey.Chris
Long Branch boot update - the colors I saw that will be available are dark brown, brown (more reddish brown), and grey.
They also showed the Black Hills in a grey. I remember the AE sales rep telling me grey was going to be big this Fall.

That's the one I saw when I met the AE sales rep earlier this year - it is on my must have list and my local store has them coming. I have the tan, but I think this color is going to be great for Fall.Chris
The one I saw earlier this year was called the Long Branch and it was a low boot. Check out this link to Amazon - the Long Branch is in the URL, but nothing on the page yet. I'm guessing August 1 for the release date.http://www.amazon.com/Allen-Allen-Edmonds-Long-Branch/dp/images/B008L36R28Chris
