post #41071 of 70737

So I tried adding some color to the previous mentioned Nathan's.  I haven't put a clear polish on yet, but I plan on bringing the toe to a mirror shine.  Just wondering thoughts on if I should keep it this way, strip it to normal, or even add more color.

Thanks!

I just picked up some AE walnut Nathans from the shoe bank for a great price, looked them over and see nothing other than some scuffing on the sole bottom.

 

I'm wondering if you all think I should just clean, condition and shine them up, or go for any sort of burnishing for them.  I'm thinking I'd put a very nice shine on the toe cap either way

If I follow you, International, you suggest staying the same size. I'm an E width, however, and I'm concerned the additional width might create heel slip. I have a thin heel but wider ball of foot.

After no response to OP, I went in store today, tried on the Randolph, which I believe is the same last, and the toe box was tight, shoe falling off my heel when just flexing, not waking. SA just shrugged and said loafers would be a hard fit for my foot type. Laces DO make a difference...

I guess i have to roll the dice on a size and hope for the best if I want a more substantial loafer than the Italian offerings. Happy to field thread suggestions...

Yes, I would suggest the same size. Not sure if the Singleton is offered in E width. May be worth a call to one of the outlets to confirm.

The Singleton does come only in the "D" width.

Hey guys, got my PA Today (1st quality). I got 2 concerns that I was wondering if you guys with more experience can take a look at. First, the left shoe's lining is a little bundled up. As result the left shoe has a slight depression in that area. It is more glaring in person than the phone is showing.

 

 

The second problem is bowing. I know that it may be because of my feet are flat, but judging by the crease it seems like the shoe is pre-stretched to bow already.

 

 

 

 

Is either of those considered normal?

First column is AE model number (with "S" signifying factory second); second-to-last column is the "regular" price; last column is number of pairs available.

 

BTW, for those of you looking for my size, don't bother inquiring about the walnut grain PA, the Winter Park, and the grey McTavish, as those are all en route to me now.  :-D  The first two I've never seen before and just want to check out; the last I may need as a replacement for my current ones, as I went a little too crazy on them with VSC (in fact, I shouldn't have used any on them at all). 

 

Glad I put my order in early since this is the list in my size!

Shell is casual? Not sure I agree with that entirely, tbh. Too many aldens, carminas, etc made in them.

I do think these are relatively casual though and the shape of the shoe isn't really all that flattering to me since they're a bit bulky and I'm really skinny...
post #41077 of 70737

Since I'm still building my shoe collection, what should I add to from the 2 for $250 sale list?

 

Currently own:

Black PA

Suede Strand

Walnut Strand

I have the V-treads on a pair of Patriots but those shoes are not worn regularly enough for me to get a handle of their wear characteristics.

What about Swims galoshes? Who uses them? Opinions if you do please?

I am a huge fan of the v tread. Love the feel of them, don't use swims as I have shoes for when weather is sketchy but if I had to walk a lot perhaps I would keep a pair in my briefcase.

Traditionally, yes they are. I know everything shell is what people gun for around here but I personally think shell is best in what it was traditionally best in: boots and bluchers and maybe loafers. I am planning on getting #8 shell gunboats someday.

My Rush streets are easily the tightest in my regular size on that last...how is the toe cap on yours is it flexible or firm

On a side not got my burnished red and gold Neumok MTO back today and it is pretty much a fail. The burnished red which looked burgundy in the creation pages looks like a dirty shoe....the shod itself is made great but I learned a lesson about ordering burnished leather in colors. Hey for the price it was offered at, the good news is I won't cry. Only sad I shelled out the extra fifty for the vtread. Will wait until I wear them to give my final verdict. I will set do another pair next year in diff colors.

Is the two-for-$250 deal only for closeout styles?  Or any factory seconds in the list they sent me?

post #41082 of 70737

I accidentally looked at this thread like I do everyday and ended up purchasing more shoes that I don't need.  Thanks style forum.  :)

I assume it is everything on the list - When I requested the list I simply asked for the 2 for $250 list - Call and ask - would do it ASAP tomorrow the email goes out to the entire AE email list

Mine are fine. I'm very pleased this time around. 11D
