Bourbon shoe polish I ordered 3 weeks ago arrived today. Looks like it's finally back in stock.

What do you think?

You answered your own question... Go with the brown strand, easily my most worn shoe

I received a pair of Fifth Avenue in 10EEE today. I have been wearing the Strand in 10E and they fit fine.

The 10EEE Park Ave also feel like they fit fine... Doesn't feel like there's a big difference between E and EEE...

 

Did anyone have the same experience?

Can't wait for my Leeds with the same specs to arrive!!! :slayer:

 

 

Love 'em!! Great job with the specs. I used your format for my Leeds order but with double butyl. So glad you posted these and I suspect that Allison will get a ton of orders in the coming days. Enjoy!

So the 565 last has so far been my go to for recent shoe purchases but I now running out of options. Can you guys advise of a last that is similar in fit? something that you share the same size in.

It seems to have been clearanced. You can call or e-mail the shoebank (shoebank@allenedmonds.com) if you want to search for seconds in your size. You can also ask them to see if there are any new uppers in the warehouse that can be used to make you a pair. Good luck.

Okay, thanks.

Thanks! Still waiting for my Leeds with these specs. After I opened these I got on the email and ordered a pair of MacNeils. I wanted to get in before all the cappuccino was taken!

For my foot, the 333 last is a similar fit, just a longer toe profile. It seems like a lot of the new styles are made on the 73 last, which is much roomier, but has a similar toe profile to the 5 last.

The butyl soles are soaked in oil to make them more water resistant.  They are distinguished visibly by the darker antique looking brown color over the lighter tan color of the oak tanned soles.

Just as suspected- my MTO chili McAllisters arrived today!

Specs- chili calf, chili edge with light brown dressing, combo tap sole.

I really like them and think the burnishing on them looks great.








Can I get some thoughts?
