I just used AE's Cleaner Conditioner and then used kiwi neutral polish on the toes.
Here is the Amazon link for the Strand Brogue
Also Nordstrom has some better images of it
Fine by me!
I almost want to call them back tomorrow and order fifth street boots, neumoras, and everything else. Holy bajeebus.
The MTO thread has grown silent and this thread has exploded due to the 2 for $250. So I'll just cross post my query here.
I'm thinking of having a spectator boot made up. As I already have 2 cap toe boots on the way (MTO eagle county) I was thinking of doing an MTO on the McAdams. Luckily the discussion for this began before that came out so AE has been generous enough to honor the previous MTO arrangement.
I cant decide between the 2 make ups:
A. Bourbon Calf - Toe Cap, Vamp, Heel Cup, Backstay
Snuff Suede - Quarters, Tongue, and Eyestays
B. Bourbon Calf - Toe Cap, Heel Cup, Backstay, Eyestays
Snuff Suede - Vamp, Quarters, Tongue
I wanted to do a suede - calfskin leather combo because i prefer textural contrast over color contrast. Snuff suede and bourbon appear close enough to my eyes. Are there other combos that anybody can recommend? I plan on wearing this with chinos, occasionally with grey and navy trousers, and maybe raw denim.
I know the spec is quite unusual, but I like a bit of unusual in my shoes.
Another option is a natural CXL Long Branch, but I already have a Chili Carson City boot and a tan saddle waxy leather Eagle County (on the way) so I think it may be redundant.
Can you quote or tag the person you are replying to, so that we can follow the conversation?
