Anyone care to share their experiences with both of these shoes?

My vote is for the Rush Streets - primarily because I just got a pair and love them. It is a great business casual shoe and with the Dainite sole, you have a great rainy day shoe.

I'm not a monk strap fan - just a personal thing so don't let that weigh on your decision.

I have the Rush street and it is a beautiful shoe in person... Mora 2.0 Bourbon should be at my house when I get home or Saturday so can let you know.

I already have similar kind of shoe although it is a wingtip derby similar color but in nubuck.

I can't help it but the Rush Street just looks absolutely gorgeous.

Yes, please let me know. Are you also getting bourbon?

Interested in this as well.

I was hoping I'd have that sale flyer when I got home. Nada. Darnit.

I don't know if there's a consensus or not, but for me, the 108 last sizing is the same as the 65 last. I find the forefoot of both lasts to feel about the same in size 9D, while the 65 last has a slightly wider feeling heel area. Based on my experience, I consider the 108 last to be the best fitting AE last for me, followed by the 65 and 333 last. I'm happy with how both the 108 and 65 last fits me in 9D.

For reference, here are the shoes in each last I own:

65 last:
-Kenilworth
-Spiaggia
-Jefferson
-Neumok (size 8.5D, probably could go with 9D)
-Elgin (size 8.5D, consensus for this model is to size down by half)
-MacNeil 5 (ordered 9D)

108 last:
-Mora 2.0
-Clark Street

For those requesting fit info on the Mora 2.0, I'll give my recent experience. I have 11 pairs of AE, all in the 10.5D/11C/11D range. Picked up some dark brown Mora 2.0 seconds about a month ago (LOVE them), and found that while they fit predictably in length, there is far more "room" inside the shoe than I'm used to. Had to send an 11D back, and got a 10.5D, in fact would have got 10.5C if they'd had stock in seconds. Anyhow, I'm sure it's mainly due to their method of fastening, which I'd not taken into consideration. That said, I picked up some basic thin insoles, and wear them with slightly thicker socks....all is well. And they are a STRIKING shoe, just beautiful. J

The 8-108 last is sufficiently narrower than the 5 last that the 8 last is too tight for my foot while the 5 last fits me better than any other last.

This has also been my experience except that the 5 last is too roomy for me. Fortunately I have already purchased the Delray (108) in a size that fit well, and chose the same for my Mora 2.0 (108).

 

I am surprised to hear pud describe the Mora as roomy and hope that they fit as well as my Delray when they get here.

I'm guessing only certain customers got it - e.g., the ones who haven't bought anything lately.

No code on my catalog. What gives?

Unrelated to the current sale, but I bought a pair of black grain Sanibels as a travel loafer ($125 on Amazon in my slightly unusual size) and, for something nondescript and easy on/off, these are great loafers.
