Wow - it honestly never would have occurred to me to make a shoe like this, but these look fantastic. I guess I don't watch enough 40's TV shows (is that even the right era?)!
Are these C&J?
I want my shoes to last that long without a question. I think that's one of the points of buying high-end shoes and caring for them so meticulously.
Does anyone know if the Clifton is discontinued? I am going to grab a couple of pair during the 2 for $250 discontinued sale. I am going to get the Mcgraw in Walnut but I need a suggestion for the other pair. I want a dark brown lace up, everything I have that laces up are all the Walnut color. Any suggestions that would be included in the ongoing sale would be much appreciated.
Yes the clifton is discontinued.
First brag on the thread. Called shoebank today, spoke to Nathan. Ended up getting 2 pairs of Patriot Shell (Burgundy +black) for $179/piece. He said once every few years they release some shell for a new product. He inspected them and sent them to me. Excited and will post some pics up once I recieve. Oh, and BTW there is one more pair of Shell patriots in brown (size 9 D) in case anyone wants them.
Picked up a set of AE Cliftons at NR this afternoon in exactly my size. I had the salesman check: not seconds; returns. A little bit of wear on the soles but more than 50% off list. I had them under my arm like a nuclear football until I got to the register.
And my God, they feel amazing. These are my first grown-up (over $150 list) shoes and these are several steps up the ladder of awesome from any other shoe I've worn.
