Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc... - Page 1788  

post #26806 of 70737
I'm waiting to see ifi can get the model code from the seller. I now the amoks came in tan, olive, navy, and bitter chocolate but never just a "brown" as the seller has it listed as.

@jlykos - I would love to purchase the amoks new however they are discontinued and no one has snuff suede.

You would probably be surprised at how many people these are "just shoes" to and don't know the ins and outs, colors and model numbers like most here. I'm not surprised that they are listed as brown at all.

I'm considering using metal toe taps but wanted to ask for advice on what works best from the members of this forum.  Other options include topy or plastic and rubber toe-taps and heel caps.

I also use Topys, which are rubber and can keep you from slipping as well as protecting your soles, (although my first choice is always buying shoes that already have rubber soles and heels).  Metal toe taps sometimes make noise and sometimes damage some types of floors and floor coverings.

I put a topy on some of my shoes if I know that i'm going to be walking on concrete a lot in them. Other shoes I simply keep the leather sole as is. Usually it's the more casual shoes that get the topy.

I went into the Allen Edmonds store when I was NYC on vacation last week with the intention of buying these shoes. When I held them in my hands I just didn't like the way they felt so I ended up not buying them. I think i'm going to end up with the Epaulet cross trainers that just came on line last week. They are in the same price range.

Let us know what you think when you get them. I do like that AE is trying stuff like this.

I do wait 24 hours after wearing before I put them back in the boxes. I also put shoe trees in them after they have dried out. I have thought about adding a few one inch holes in the back of each box. Still not sure how much airflow they would get since the boxes are against the wall and the shoes are in shoe bags.

I don't think it's as much about having air blowing through the boxes as it is just having somewhere for the air inside the boxes to escape. In an effort to keep the temp and humidity equal I'd say.

I'm wearing my chocolate ones right now and the color is definitely different. That said, the shoes in the advertisement would need to be cleaned when you get them. Sapphir Suede Shampoo would work really well for that application.

Personally, I would probably try to pay a few extra dollars and try to find a new pair on sale because the pair in question do not look "gently used" as the advertisement states and because the cost of the shoes and the shampoo would come close to equaling a new pair. I paid $125 for mine, brand new; if you look around, you could probably find something similar.

Shoe Bank and outlets are selling Amoks for 99.00 right now, and I believe they are firsts, just discontinued

Nothing here's "necessary." It's a recreational internet forum. It is STYLEforum, so I chimed in.

To each his own. I probably wouldn't like half the stuff in your closet either.

STYLE in how we interact with others is more important than the STYLE of our clothing.

You guys must be unfamiliar with the way VinnyMac posts. He is actually quite tame in this thread...

Nice Leeds! (Click to show)

 


 

 

 

Your MTO Leeds look great and well worth the wait! I am biased though and feel it is hard to have too many pairs of Leeds smile.gif

Time for one of these, Pastor.



For a nice, clean look.
