Speaking of Shell Macneils, I am sporting my black ones today with my "bleeped out swear word socks". Here they are in the sunlight at my office.

 

On a sad note, my Eagle County MTO did not pass inspection. So back to waiting....

I'm wearing my shell Macneils today, as well.  Crappy GS4 pictures.....

Does anybody know if I should order my suede neumoks in the same size as my calf PA? (calf PA runs a tad long for me, but it's okay)

I purposely orderd shell leeds and shell PA half size down since shell is generally roomier than calf. We'll see if that works.

I went to Berklee and Juilliard, and did stick with music as a career path (much to my mother-in-law's dismay).

Was inspired to upgrade my wardrobe by the great drummer Carl Allen, and introduced to (and hooked on) AE shoes by fellow saxophonist Jason Marshall (who owns 25 pairs, I believe).

/lifestory

Anyway, my Long Branches really taking a beating lately. How often do y'all strip and re-apply HDLP within a season? I'm really worried about all this NYC rock salt.

Very cool. I did not realize that there was so many musicians on the AE thread. I went to a place called Interlochen Arts Academy for High School and from there opted to join the Marine Corps Band instead of going to college. Manhattan School of Music was my top choice but I came in 3rd on the audition and they only had 1 slot. Same with Juilliard. I could have attended New England Conservatory but the price was more than my folks could afford. I could not imagine them (or me) paying $30k a year for college. I had fun in the Marine Band but it destroyed my love of playing music. About three quarters through my enlistment with the Marines I started following a different career path. I'm now a full-time pastor and an adjunct professor of Theology at a seminary.

I'll relate this to AE by saying I've literally inspired 10 or more people to jump on the AE bandwagon since I've been a minister.

Yeah, I'd probably just get PA's instead TBH.

PSA: Jos. A. Bank has shoe trees at buy 1 for $25, get 2 free (so $8.33), in case any of you didn't buy enough during the recent $8.50 sale.

^ Bought 9 in preparation for the looming AE seconds deal. Okay jokes aside, I had to buy 9 to get free shipping and some of my shoes needed trees.

I wonder if they'll price-adjust for the 50-cent difference?  :lol:

So you're literally an AE evangelist! I love it.

I attended the Interlochen Arts Camp when I was in high school. Small World!

Where do you currently preach, And does your congregation appreciate your fab footwear?

Not sure if you can see shoes up on the pulpit!

Actually I did evangelize for several years before accepting the pastorate at a church in Rock Hill, SC. I traveled all over the country in a large 5th wheel with my wife and family. Yeah, I think the people here appreciate my footwear collection. I have 5 young preachers in the church here and this coming year for Christmas I've already told my wife I'm going to take them all to the AE store and purchase them a pair of shoes of their choice. One of them just recently purchased a pair from the Shoe Bank.

I went to the Interlochen Camp in the Summer of 1998 and auditioned for the academy at the end of camp. I stayed on for my senior year of High School and graduated in 1999. Small world indeed!

Thanks for the heads up! Just a question: Is the recommended sizing pretty accurate on these? I'm an 11.5E and it is the smallest size they recommend the XL shoe tree for. I am afraid of potentially stretching out my shoes if they are too big.
