Also keep in mind that you can add things like lint rollers or collar stays to push over the limit, depending upon what else you may've bought.

Stuff them with socks and I put them in separate shoe bags or plastic bags so that they don't rub against each other.

Hmm.  I wonder if the fact that I ordered 18 pairs has anything to do with that?

I travel every week for work, Mon-Fri, so I might be a little overboard on this one. I don't check bags, just carry-on. I double bag my shoes with the inner layer being Lewis N. Clark shoe bags and the exterior being AE shoe bags which go in the reverse direction in order to cover the heel and the toe completely. I keep cedar trees in my shoes, and also bring another pair in my carry-on to use for my second pair. Need both pairs to be tree'd at night!

 

Lewis N. Clark bags: http://www.amazon.com/Lewis-N-Clark-Travel-Size/dp/B0049B25TA/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1390342991&sr=8-15&keywords=shoe+bags

 

Also, I keep 3 shoe horns with me in different bags in case I ever need to pull one out. One in the outside pocket of the carry-on. One in the outside pocket of my briefcase. One in a travel-pouch that I take out of the briefcase and put in the pocket in the seat in front of me on the plane (in case I want to take off my shoes on the plane).

For anyone interested, Leffot is having a sale on the AE made Wolverine 744LTD cordovan boot. $532 isn't a bad price for some shell boots. Unfortunately, none in my size.

Only 7.5 and 8.5 left.  What other Wolverines (if any) does AE make?

Krause boot, 721 ltd, i believe. I am sure there are others.

That is a really nice boot.  I bet Allison could hook us up with an MTO/custom, although I'm sure it would cost $760 rather than $532.  So many boots, so little time . . .

I had actually asked her this. She told me the Promontory Point is the closest she could get, as the lasts for the 721 and 744 are owned by Wolverine.

AE makes all the 360 degree welted Wolverines.

The Promontory Point last is almost identical to the Wolverine last anyway. AE got in quite a bit of trouble for it.

Just received my dark brown Long Branch seconds in 11.5E and am very pleased. I can find no discernible flaw in either shoe.

 

Anyone know how I can prep them to handle some bad NYC weather? I don't want the salt/snow ruining the leather. I tried doing some research on various websites but couldn't find a definitive answer. Is Obenauf's HDLP overkill?

Wolverines are on the APL last which is supposed to be unique to them, the subcontractor (AE) was not to use the last for AE branded shoes.There by giving Wolverine a unique product. There were also issues with AE selling wolverine seconds.

They look great, nice pickup!

I've got some MTO Bayfields coming in tan Dublin leather. I plan to HDLP them upon arrival. Haven't used the stuff before, but from what I understand on this thread (from people I trust) it gives the leather a nice glow and protects it against just about anything.

Be aware that the best protection you can provide against salt is to rinse 'em off and wipe 'em down whenever you come back inside.
