I would actually love to have the brown dainite put on my brown Dundees when it comes time for resoling

BNelson has various colors of Dainite, including brown.

I am offering 10% off any custom AE shoes I have for sale (see signature below) to see if anyone was interested. I have Strands, Eagle County's, Park Avenues, McAllisters and many other great styles.

A Leeds MTO to replicate this Carmina would be awesome. I am now also curious as to why AE does not source the, what looks to be, brown Dainite.

IMO, this shoe is just about a perfect casual makeup. Carmina does suede extremely well and I do not think this could be replicated by AE. I think this makeup is worth the additional $$

Was really looking forward to the extinct Ridgeway in 13eee, but unfortunately, this was the last best pair the shoe bank had to offer. I'm quite surprised that these were considered sellable. A quick look would have saved a lot of time and $20+ bucks in restocking and return shipping fees. Had some good shoe bank finds, but damn, caveat emptor indeed.

I was afraid a boot would not be as comfortable as a shoe, but I was wrong. The boot does feel different, but it is extremely comfortable.

Here are my chocolate Daltons

I also own the dark chocolate Daltons and love them.  They're super comfortable and look great.

 

My first (and only other) AE boot was actually the tan Eagle County (seconds for $129).  The sole is ridiculously comfortable and makes them feel like a sneaker.

You guys seem to know quite a bit about Allen Edmonds. 

 

I just picked up these Mcallister Bourbons - came in today from the warehouse. Does the brogue look alright to you guys? I just want to be sure the quality is right - seems a bit off to me, but I'm not sure if that's just because "handmade character" and the nature of a handmade shoe. 

 

Thoughts? Appreciate opinions.

It's just a different medallion design... The Jefferson has a more forward positioned pattern, that appears slightly larger in size...

I guess the big thing for me was the fact that the brogues didn't appear to be cut as clean as my Strands. Am I just being too nit picky?

Damn...now I need a pair of shell strands after seeing Mike's pic
post #43662 of 70737

In the past month I acquired two shoes that seem to be fitting similar bills for me: AE Strand in brown cordovan and Alden Alt Wien for Epaulet in color 8. I love the Alt Wien so I am now trying to decide whether I do really need the Strands, which I have not yet had a chance to wear. I really don't find myself wearing balmorals that often (I am a LWB and PTB kind of guy), I don't wear suits and any other formal stuff, so I anticipate that the Strand will not be in my regular rotation very often. However, I know that the Alt Wien could work with both the jeans and a suit, should there be a need. 

 

Hence the question: apart from one being balmoral and another being a blucher and having different shell colors, do you see any degree of redundancy between these two shoes? Are they different enough to keep both? Is Strand in cordovan a must have staple (which it likely is) that I will necessarily regret not keeping down the road?

Probably. But if it bothers you then that is all that really matters. Should be easy enough to exchange for another pair

That's pretty bad and worse than anything I've seen.  The sole would likely be fixable (sanding the black marks off and then coating with edge dressing).  I'd return those for certain - miles worse than any defect I've gotten.

That EP Alt Wein is so sick. I still kick myself for passing on those
