When does the Spring collection usually get released? I'm excited to see what they have in store for us this upcoming season!

 

Perhaps the Feb sale day signifies the clearance of Winter models and bringing in the spring lineup?

+1000. The current MacNeil in pebble grain looks so inferior to acousticfoodie's. The patina achieved on the MacNeil in walnut (above) is insanely sassy. I'm envious.

+1000 to your +1000. I thought exactly the same when I saw those. One of the best looking combinations of color, patina, and style that I've seen on an AE shoe.

You can do a custom makeup of the MacNeil in walnut calf. It does not look nearly as nice on the site as in acousticfoodie's picture. It also prices out at $460 (I don't know why); and of course, would never be on sale.

You know, i had the Kenilworth for a few months, and i will say that compared to balmoral style shoes, blutchers tend to crease more on the vamp in general. There is more vamp area that moves around on a blutcher, compared to the restricted vamp on a balmoral. I suspect that is all that is to it (assuming you are indeed maintaining your shoes well). Just the nature of the shoe style.

I just used the sizing guide on the website and it looks like i'm a 10US, yet the Lloyd's that I wear are a 8.5UK size.

do the AE's run bigger to size.

cheers

I would totally ignore what the AE size guide says, at least for the size; the width seems okay.

I used the guide and it told me I was a 9.5. I decided that's not what I thought I was at all, and bought the 9, and it was still huge; my actual size is 8 to 8.5. The Brannock had me pegged at 8.5 I think.

Hope this helps.

^ I tried their size guide for the heck of it and measured as a 9.5D. However, I'm a 10.5D across the board in AE shoes. I couldn't imagine trying to stuff my hooves into a 10, and a 9.5 would be torture.

Just received email from AE about a sale on boots. They list the Ashbury, Malvern, and Bayfield. Unfortunately, when you try to pull up the Bayfield you get an error message and the Malvern's aren't showing any discount at all. Didn't I read something about AE discontinuing the Bayfield. If so, I think it's a shame as I'd love a pair.

Welcome to the club, you'll like it here smile.gif


 

Thanks.  Just ordered my second pair today.  Amazon had a Delray in brown in my size for $153.  Seems like quite a nice, versatile shoe for the money.  

 

If anyone is interested, they still have quite a few sizes at that price.

I can confirm that they are indeed on sale, at least at AE stores, as i stopped by and saw the Bayfield, Malvern, and Ashbury marked as clearance. Call an AE store, might give you better information.

FYI, if anyone was planning on getting any Seven collection AE's, now is the time. I had a pair come in at my local AE store, and we noticed that they now scan at $199! bounce2.gif That is a steal for that quality shoe, you will probably have to call stores to get them though, as most were recalled to the AE warehouse.

An interesting sizing note on the Seven collection. I have a Tresana in 10 EEE, i assumed that they only made one last for the blutchers in that collection, and ordered the Vinci in the same size. It turns out that they were regretably to tight, and will have to get them at my usual AE size of 10.5 EEE. The looked fantastic though, can't wait for the new pair. biggrin.gif

I also got a chance to compare them with the Independence collection, and there is a lot of similarities amongst them. Same supple leather, similar sole design, insole padding is also comparable, even the shoe laces are the same. We'll see how they fare at a higher price point, i think i saw one i liked coming out in the upcoming season. I'll have to see it in person.

Did anyone end up putting up real life pics of the walnut cordovan boot? I was really interested to see 'em in the wild before considering purchase,

The Spring/Summer 2012 Catalogue will be released sometime in early to mid February so keep an eye on AE's website.

Yes there is a thread on here about them and a couple of us did-

http://www.styleforum.net/t/277216/allen-edmonds-dalton-shell-cordovan-in-walnut

 

Except for some looseness in the heel area which seems common I'm very pleased. In fact considering the Limited Edition Strand now which is why I am currently looking through these threads. Cripes last month I picked up 5 more AE shoes\boots with 2 in shell, WTH am I thinking?!? Here are my Shell Daltons, click for a larger pic:
