And, it's funny what you say about bluchers - I have a couple pairs (Black Hills and BB San Marco) but I almost never wear them.  AE has so many great casual bals (e.g., I have two each of Neumok and McTavish) that it just seems a shame to wear a blucher instead.  I've even been known to wear my shell Cambridges with denim . . .

I've noticed the same thing re:the Franciscans around these parts. I think the forum generally doesn't show much love to the 333 last. Maybe it's because there aren't many balmorals featured in this last? Personally, it's my favorite last, with some damn sexy options:

 

-Franciscan

-Rutledge

-Larchmont (personal favorite)

-Parkway (I own two of these; one in walnut, other in brown, but the heavy stitching throws them off a bit...love the shape though)

-Portland

-Hanover

-Boca Raton (more seasonal)

-Harrison (mdubs, I believe, did this in black cordovan...making me think about returning my unworn park aves and MTOing these)

-Flatiron

 

I even like the Haight boot, but not sure if the Chelsea-style would fit my narrow foot well. Looks great though.

 

All-in-all, I think the 333 is Allen Edmonds's best last.

 

The Haight definitely doesn't get props around here but I love mine - great for motorcycle riding among other things.

 

Re: narrow, I'm a 9.5 E in PAs and when I was able to snag a second in the Haights in the same size I thought I'd give them a shot.  They were pretty snug at first but have now broken in very nicely.  OTOH, my 9.5 E Franciscans were a perfect width out of the box.  Go figure.

My Bayfields from Lands End arrived today! Very happy with them and glad I chose them over the Wolverine 1000k

Thanks for the tips on Shoebuy but I can't seem to get the code to work.  It seems like all AE shoes are excluded.  Were you able to get it to work?

Received my SF MTO snuff suede Mora 2.0's today. I ordered this with Dainite soles for winter wear. (just in time too, as we got our first real snow yesterday)

This is the first time I've seen Mora 2.0's in person, and I think they are pretty nice. My guess is that they are less polarizing compared to the Neumoras. I do think they should have kept offering Neumoras alongside the Mora 2.0, since they have distinctly different shapes.

Anyway, here they are:

Interesting, at first I thought someone had reposted my pic. Then I realized some differences - your sole edges look black, mine are lighter brown. And I'm thinking yours are a smaller size than my little 12's. Lol. I also love mine - bought them thinking they'd be my crappy weather boots, but I'm afraid to beat them up now, they're so nice looking.

Not a fan of monks but I mean seriously anything in snuff suede just makes the shoes pop and look so classy. They look really nice!

What's the difference in the shape mainly between the Neumoras and Mora 2.0?

Neumoras are square/chiseled and Mora 1.0 and 2.0 are rounded.

Thanks. The Neumora is on the 333-last, so it has a chiseled toe while the Mora 2.0 is on the 8-last and has a round toe. I suppose they are basically the same shoes in different lasts, so I can see why they discontinued the Neumora.

These have me seriously reconsidering the fact that a wanted a PTB in snuff suede. I have yet to get a pair of monks and these are amazing.

What are you choosing to do for care on them? I already picked up and treated my Eagle County with LP to be my "winter" boot so I think I may stick to Reno and brushing for this piar. Have yet to fully make a decision though.

 

I had to second look at mine now to see about the black edge. My pic is a little dark but it does have the lighter brown above the black rubber on the sole. Mine are a size 8 and I have to admit the pic I took makes them look a little stumpy lol so here are a few more.

Suede shoes in the snow? You're a braver man than I.

Killer shoes btw....

Ordered a MTO pair of shell MacNeils thru Allison September 6th. They failed inspection once and I've heard nothing since. My emails to her now go unanswered. If you go MTO, be prepared to have some patience...

Wow, those are a great looking pair of shoes. I was thinking about a pair of Neumoks in Snuff Suede but these may have changed my mind.

 

Good job with the MTO, but like someone else pointed out- be careful with getting your suede wet!!!

give her a call and leave a VM, she is usually good at calling back.
