NewShoes: I am a fan of the Leeds. I own it in burgundy shell, black shell, brown shell, and walnut shell (soon to arrive). The 1 last, for me, is great. The MacNeil is decent looking, but the 7 last is a tricky fit. I own it in burgundy shell (with AE's version of commando outsole). As for the Dalton, we will agree to disagree. No problem. Daltons seem to be selling well ...

Lostron: I wear shell cordovan shoes and boots year 'round. Indeed, as I type I am wearing the C&J for BB burgundy shell captoe boots.

A good day to one and all. biggrin.gif

Sweet.

This is what I want, but in reference to my earlier post, is the Brooks Brothers version of the Shelton basically the same shoe with a different sole, or is the leather not as good as the AE shoe?

For some of us the Anniversary sale starts in just a few weeks on July 10th.  And last year's Anniversary Sale was a whopping 35% off retail.

I think the sole is different, but that's it.  These Sheltons are all-shell, by the way.

It's actually difficult for me to categorize any of Ecco's models as "dress" shoes in the traditional sen
se.

Again, it was just a comment by Brett (who is a Manager at Nordstroms Shoes) - and he has been at Nordstroms for 19 years, owns over 90 pair of very nice shoes (including AE, Alden, etc) - and he mentioned he uses a dress style of the Echo for on his feet all day.  I would think others, such as doctors, would be good to visit a Nordstrom Department Store and try on a pair, alongside any of the AE styles to - and make the judgement in person.

Those walnut shell MacNeils are amazing.  They're exactly what I'm looking for to fill the "casual yet stylish" void in my AE collection.

I apply a little bit of wax to the shoe with a cloth, then dip the same cloth in a tiny amount of water. Add a bit more wax and rub to the now wet cloth onto the shoe. I use another cloth to get most of the polish off. Then I use the saphir buffing cloth to bring out the deep shine. Finally, I get some nylon pantyhose and give it a good once over. 

 

Saphir products are amazing.

Great advice.

 

How long did it take you?

Perhaps on some styles, but they have other dress shoes which have a decent stitched-like welt around the top of the sole.  That is the type Brett favors.  Next time you go to a good store, examine them for yourself - that is if you need a pair for on your feet all day.  Otherwise, you would not need to consider Ecco.

"Ecco." Not "Echo"

  • AE Clifton for $199.90
  • AE Players for $223.90.

 

 

 

The Ecco suggestion was for "those who are on their feet all day", who want something dressy and attractive - but COMFORTABLE for all day use.  It's just a choice and has less to do with price and more to do with all day comfort.

 

Rather than concentrate on the factory video - here is a video in the final step of wear:
