Thanks for the info guys. I checked out the McTavish and while it's a nice shoe, I don't think I have the confidence to pull those off yet!

Double post.

Chili McAllisters? Just got a pair in the mail a couple weeks ago, they are beautiful!! Fit in my rotation perfectly with my walnut strands and burgundy mcallisters. Looking back I wish i had went with wheeled edges, makes them look even better I bet.

Sorry for not knowing, new to all of this... about to pull the trigger on my 3rd pair in the last 2 weeks (a monster has been created). What is a wheeled edge vs standard? And how does the Independence lining compare to the standard?

 

Thanks

I figured out the wheeled edge. But would still like some feedback on the Independence lining...

Scotty,

 

Any chance you could post a pic or two of your Chili's?

Lamb skin lining vs "glove" leather lining. Basically, it is softer.

Those look nice. Congrats.

Are those shell? Calf would be ok with me. I've been tempted by some To Boot shortwings and Mezlan (I think). However, I'm not sure how they are quality wise.

So what is the chilli welt? Isn't the wheeled edge going to cover that? You also mention light brown edge. I don't understand which is which?

Why is it that when I see a shell shoe on it's first wear out in the real world they already have rolls?  How much wear does it take before the rolls appear?

I think I will be ordering some burgundy cordovan bayfields MTO but I am confused by all these terms. Can someone define/clarify the difference between the welt, the edge, and what a wheeled edge is? Pictures would be helpful.

 

Also, I was wondering, are there any captoe boots in the past that are ankle height? The bayfields are nice but I am wishing they only came up to chukka boot/cronmok height. I'm doing google searches of past AE styles that are like the bayfields but ankle height but havent come up with anything.

I think I might have found some. Allen edmonds medford. Does anyone have any info on the medford or know where I can find some info on them. They look like what I've been looking for in terms of it being captoe + shorter in height. They do look a little clunky though.

From what I understand, the welt is a layer on top of the midsole. You don't have a wheeled edge, the welt is wheeled. The edge is the side of the shoe which encompasses the side of the welt, the midsole and the sole of the shoe. The Fifth Streets are an ankle height cap toe boot, but they have a medallion.

I work in a similar environment and recently ordered the discontinued Cacsade in brown during the 2 for $250 sale; the seconds price (when not on sale) should be $159. With its vibram sole, it's definitely on the casual side of the AE spectrum, but the leather really shines up well.   Since it's no longer an "active" model, there don't seem to be pics of it on AE's site -- these pics on Lyst are good, but don't show the real quality of the leather.  In person, it's definitely more "shoe" than "boot".  I picked up some neutral shoe polish (paste wax) from AE at the same time and was surprised by how much better it was than my typical Kiwi stuff.  Regardless of what shoe you get, do yourself a favor and pick up the AE wax (and a horsehair brush, if you don't have one).

Brand new brown Delrays.

 

I know they're not the fanciest shoes in the world, but Delrays are my workhorse (I have them in Chili, and I had a real old pair in brown).  They're fantastic every day shoes, especially with a pair of chinos or cotton pants.  I don't know why SF seems to be lukewarm at best when it comes to them/their split toe, but they're some of the most versatile (and best looking) shoes AE makes.  And they're made on the best last there is.
