Funny, I noticed the same thing. Could be b/c the calf model is not yet broken in and molded to my foot.

They are all 10.5D.

I'm not a big wearer of black, so I'm passing on that color. I have been tempted by the Bourbon, but I think that's brown overkill !

Oh my - these new spectator webgems are going to really test my willpower.  Especially since not only does the 7 last fit me really well, but I'm guessing they're named Summit Avenue after the road in St Paul, MN - where F Scott Fitzgerald and James J Hill once lived, and where the governor's mansion and the cathedral of St Paul are. (And, which is a block away from my house).

However, these will probably be worn mostly with jeans in a casual environment.

Any thoughts? I noticed the merlots have v-tread and not sure if that should be a deterrent or not.

Don't wear the Patriots with suits. If you are going non-shell, I would go brown. I think shell in burgundy looks much better than calf in burgundy. Brown looks good (but different) in both shell and burgundy. I think brown and burgundy are equally versatile on a shoe like the Patriot.

Their timing is spot on, indirectly they are timing their release of spectators and 20s style a day before the gatsby movie release.

I am surprised the 1920's inspired webgems don't include a Nucky-Thompson-esque black-and-brown/walnut spectator.

It isn't really a coincidence.  Brooks Brothers is apparently the supplier of clothing for the film (see their website).  AE has made shoes as a part of the Gatsby collection, and I assume they may have been part of the costumes for the movie.  Just speculating on that, but it makes sense.

First webgem that I have liked in while

The Nucky Thompson shoe is available elsewhere.

They have a walnut/bone longwing spectator available in my size. If I weren't already in the process of buying shell MacNeils per Mr. G's offer from last month, I would be ALL OVER THAT. What a good-looking shoe. nod[1].gif

I thought the same on the long wing, and also have a custom shell MacNeil on the way. I am interested in the brown/walnut wing; it kinda reminds me of Nucky Thompson's shoes. Undecided if I should pull the trigger.

I decided to return the strands in black and get the fifth avenues. Man these things are the most comfortable dress shoes I've ever worn. The right heel has a bit of slippage but I bought some heel slip thingy to put in.

Happy that I got something more plain

Historically I'm not sure if AE had gained traction yet with the mass market. As their original founding was 1922, but I'm more saying they are timing the release of this Webern but am not sure if they actually have a sponsorship or official nod by the move folks. This is speculation as well though.
