Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc... - Page 2844  

post #42646 of 70737

It seems to be an individualized code. The code itself is on the back page (left of the addressee info in a grey box) and then more detailed on p. 17 of the advert. 

 

I.e., gotta have a buddy not spending during the sale who is willing pony it up.

Its weird, it seems like whenever other shoemakers do the chisel toe thing, its considered so fashion forward and contemporary and sleek etc...and then allen edmonds who is widely reputed to have unsleek lasts, does something very similar in the 333 last and suddenly that last shape is now said to be to be wholly unattractive...lol

Im not crazy about chisel toes in general, but I think the 333 last is a pretty good attempt by allen edmonds

Meh, some folks prefer the pointy Euro designs, and some folks like the clunky AE and Alden designs. Some folks like both, or don't care.

I dig AE because they make shoes wide enough for my dogs, and most other brands don't.

PSA, anyone who wears 11.5 B or 14 D in the 5 last; they have black Jeffersons on Amazon for 202.37. With 20% off subscription coupon, they come to 161 and some change.

IMO other manufactures have refined the look and thus are able to execute the design better. When I thin of AE or Alden, I think of contemporary American designs. I applaud their effort to try new things it just is not for me. However plenty of their designs are and thus the reason why AE appeals to a broad customer base.

I'm assuming the sole underneath is still leather, but the V-tread is just a layer of additional rubber like a Topy?

 

I have not worn through any of my V treads yet but I love them - not sure about ease of replacement - they are stitched in where a sole guard aftermarket would not be. Does AE offer a price to replace a V tread or do they consider it needing a sole replacement? I may call tomorrow to find out.

If you don't mind seconds, the Mora 2.0 is on sale for like $179 I think from an AE outlet right now.

 

Thanks for the heads up. I pulled the trigger on the Moras for 169!

 

I'd order a pair, but I've never tried on Mora 2.0's before. I'm worried a 9.5 EEE, which fits my feet perfectly on the 5 last, would be to wide for me. :lookaround:

How often do you wear your V-treads and how long have you had them?

Not long, 4 months and wear them once a week.

I've had my strands with v/treads since July of last year, worn about 1-2x a week. Quite happy with them. Saves the leather from wet ground (quite important as I love in the tropics) nd provides a nice grip even on hard flat surfaces.

Does anybody know why AE stop making 7 EEE on most of the shoes?
post #42659 of 70737

Jos A Bank is having another site wide sale. Shoe trees are available for $10 a pair. A lot of folks missed out on the last sale (including myself) so this is another chance to get shoe trees at the cheap. I got 10 pairs this time :slayer:

Thank you.
