I wasn't sure about the cap toe / wingtip design when they released it. But it is now growing on me. And your photos just made it even more appealing. The bourbon color is great on that shoe.Chris
The Cognac leather looks a lot like my Cognac McTavishesChris
Check out the new MacNeil 5's on the AE website. Interesting and tempting. http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF9005_1_40000000001_-1_ http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF9015_1_40000000001_-1_ http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF9020_1_40000000001_-1_ http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF9029_1_40000000001_-1_ Chris
Congratulations on your new AE's. I really like my Bourbon Strands also.Chris
I have always used a shoe horn - some metal, some plastic - and have never damaged my shoes. Quite the opposite - you will damage your shoes if you do not use a shoe horn.Chris
I just went to the bay, searched for shoe horn, and the first one was a 24 inch shoe horn for $11.89 with free shipping.I just sent you a PM - I don't think they want links posted here.Chris
I don't know your definition of cheap. But how about this one? Free shipping.http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF599_1_40000000001_-1_The bay has some - 3 for $11 in stainless and it looks like you can get free shipping. Just go to the bay and search for shoe horn.Chris
Very nice, I think I like that a lot better than the Strandmoks.Chris
With the distressed leather, you are going to develop creases and different shading is a lot of areas of the shoe. I have noticed this withy my tan natural McTavish, but I have noticed it more on my cognac McTavish.I would say put some AE Leather Lotion on them and wear them. That is the look I want with a distressed leather, so I would keep them. But they are your shoes, so you have to be sure you are OK with them.Chris
This is what I do with new calf shoes. I use AE Cleaner / Conditioner, buff, apply AE paste wax, buff, wear.Chris
