The uppers feel fine and have already started to give a bit more, and are really only rubbing because the sole requires a bit of break-in.

Thanks for the feedback!  It didn't occur to me to check the Shoe Care Reference.   I have the LL but for some reason it also didn't occur to me to try it on the Elgins/Stewarts.  Maybe I'll do one pair with the LL and the other with VSC (don't have any Reno yet) and see how they compare . . .

I immediately thought of the Alden NST as well.  It would be interesting to see them side-by-side with the Bradleys.

I don't think I'd go quite that far, haha. The AE would look better without the ridge on the vamp stitching.

Very nice. I think they look better on the feet than on display.

 

Are those a well "patina'd" burgundy shell or brown shell?

And how much do the Eagle County MTOs cost?

They are burgundy and were "pre-patina'd". Probably one of the best deals I have ever gotten, picked them up lightly worn on eBay for $50!

Same price as the Eagle Country if you stick with the same type of leathers (I.e. Don't use shell).

Shoe Horn question - Is the leather wrapped ones from AE practical or are they too thick to use properly...I do not currently use a shoe horn at all so was curious...

In all seriousness the leather one should be fine. I have a cheapie plastic one from the AE store that is probably just as thick. Whatever you do, get one ASAP!!!

I have a leather-wrapped one that The Shoe Mart threw in as a freebie with some Aldens that I bought from them.  The thickness is not an issue at all.  I wouldn't have paid for one, as the plastic ones work just fine, but I'm glad that I have it.  BTW, getting a plastic one for free shouldn't be that hard either.  If you live near a AE store you might inquire the next time you go in there.  Giving them away is advertising for them.

Thanks - I liked the longer AE one they had for using with boots and better than using a wooden spoon when my son gets out of line...damn wooden spoons break easier now than when I was a kid....I only know that as my wife wacked me with one recently it snapped like a toothpick...Yes in the kitchen not the bedroom....perverts :)

 

I have to place an order for some polish, laces, and edge dressing so figured what the heck - thanks I will add one to my cart.

I use the exact same one from TheShoeMart. No problems with it being leather wrapped.
