I own this one:

I used it for a little while before I found another one that I liked better.  It's US-made but I don't know by whom.  I do think it's a pretty nice wallet, though.

 

If you're interested in buying mine, PM me and let's make a deal.

I am 9D Brannock and wear the following:

1 last: 9D
5 Last: 9D
7 Last: 9D
8 Last: 9D

My 5 last shoes are probably the worse fitting of the bunch, but not by much. The fit on the others is pretty good.

 

Probably because they're not the right size?

More likely the last is no good for his foot.

Question for the shoe care pros in this thread: what kind of treatment, if any, do you give to a brand-new pair of calf shoes? I'm relatively new to the nice shoes/proper care game, and have a new pair of black Park Avenues (worn twice) that I'd like to add a bit of shine to. Obviously, the leather is still rather soft and healthy looking, so they don't need a whole lot of love. Would it be acceptable just to add some wax polish to the toe caps for a nice shine? Or should I give the entire shoes some sort of treatment? I have conditioner/cleaner, cream polish, and wax polish, all AE products.

I appreciate the replies!

I just grabbed them off of eBay and think they look terrific -- similar to the Madison Avenues, but with a leather sole, instead of a rubber sole.  Can anybody help me identify them?

Those look great. Congrats. AE has made Madison Aves with leather soles.

It depends on what type of shine you go for.  For my calf shoes I always start with a coat of leather conditioner/cleaner (even when new) and then add a layer of AE polish (the kind in the tubes, not the hard waxy kind).  I then use a horsehair brush and a cloth to polish them up.  I also ensure the edges have dressing as well.  I never wear a pair of new AEs without a coating of polish but that's just me.  I also store them with AE shoe trees and in shoe bags to help keep them looking new.

Here are my first of two pairs ordered from the sale (second pair should be here tomorrow).  Tan Banchory's - the error is in the stitching near the heel and a black mark on the heel which came out in about five seconds after using sandpaper:

Saw this very thing a couple days ago... Actually, the shoe was a bourbon Kenilworth. Sanded, painted back sole, with 'WORN AND REFINISHED' on the price tag. That being said, I should have bought it; I love bourbon. Think it was $119, looked nearly flawless.

What is the difference between using the AE conditioner cleaner and something like Obenauf's leather oil on your AE calf shoes? Are they interchangable?

I wonder what this is from. Maybe returns? Displays that get beat up too much?

 

Don't they have a cobbler service they use? Maybe they get ones from there that don't get claimed?

NOT INTERCHANGEABLE!!

I've figured out that my 'right pinky toe is smarting in certain shoes' problem is because of a previously broken right small toe that healed less than perfect; in this case, do you stretch all shoes with the issue to accommodate the nuance of the right toe...or break the toe again, reset and get the TOE right to fit the shoes? LOL

Also, 2nd of my 2/250 has arrived, will post pics - slight defect, interested to get feedback on whether to keep (the shoe fits into the above category.)
