Delray, Cody, Mayfair, Boca Raton, Patriot

 

Nothing to get excited about.


The Boca is a stunning shoe...unless you are extremely conservative in dress that shoe in walnut is amazing.

not to say that the selection is crap. Just so limited that it doesn't warrant the same excitement as the 2 for 250.

 

on a happy note..my Hale in black is arriving today! The lady was nice enough to give me the one for $125(since all the styles I asked for as the 2nd were not available)

Meh, it seems rather.....blue light special-ish to me.

Like the sort of shoe that I would wear out on the town at 5pm in a Florida retirement community

The shoe should be renamed: Ft. Lauderdale

to each their own, in person it is a great looking shoe. You probably think black socks and sandles are bad too...stick in the mud! ;)

FWIW, I'm a 10EEE in strands/5 last, and 10D Mora 2.0s were very tight in the front.

I tried brushing it and using an eraser. Didn't really help that much.

Kinda sneaky they put a Franciscan on the banner. Unless its actually included.

 When I need to stretch out a baby toe, I find a shoe stretcher works wonders. I'm sure there are other options available as well. I'd look for one that has lots of 'hole' options for where to put the plastic bit for stretching in a particular area - if that makes any sense... those who have shoe stretchers probably understand ;)

 

Totally agree. My foot is fairly wide at the front. For me the 9D fits perfectly in length in the wider lasts, except that my small toe is cramped in a bit. I did try going up to a 9E but that felt too loose in the heel. I did not try going to a 8.5E, but I have tried that on other shoes and have not liked how it felt overall. I had my calf shoes stretched a bit and it worked wonders. It does not take a lot.

I just emailed them for availability of brown Dundee in my size. Let's see what they come back with...

Could not agree more. AEs for kick around shoes, but there is something about the longer, sleeker style that looks more refined. I think.

Very nice! I should have jumped on some of these, but didn't have the time to think it through.

:facepalm:

Are pine-sol and Old English interchangeable???

Does anyone have pictures of their used AE suede shoes?

I'm trying to get a feel for how the creases make the suede look after a bunch of wear.


Thanks in advance!
