Just go this at ebay for 80$ with shipping.

It also has a nice dainite sole

Amok, maybe?  AE didn't start offering red Dainite until a few months ago, so those were either a recent MTO or resoled by a third party.  Either way, they're absolutely beautiful.  Great kop.

Yes, that's what I was thinking too, Amok. I have searched from the AE website and even looked through their past web gems can't find any in dark green. Also in the info it says "new" so I guess it was probably a MTO shoe.

Here a couple of pics of my Rutledges in the wild. Sorry I don't have more pics. I do love these shoes as they can be worn from suit to jeans.

Hoping to get some help on some AE loafer sizing.

 

I am looking at these Kenwoods in a size 7.5 EEE or possibly a 8 EEE.

 

 

I had already tried the Brooks Presidio in a 7.5 EEE and the length was great but they were a little cramped on the baby toe, thought not unbearable. The 8 EEE was a bit loose and my back heel was slipping out.

 

 

My question is, would an 8 D/E give more room than a 7.5 EEE on the width?

Also, is there any stretch in either of these shoes? I didn't want to wear them too long since I wanted to return them so I don't know if they'll stretch.

 

Thanks Everyone for your help.

 

The kenwoods are on for $99 on the AE factory seconds sale.

Great shoe and I would highly recommend them.

 

LOL, nervously looking over shoulder now...  :hide: 

Narrow heel and no arch, 10D in AE 1 and 5 lasts and Alden Grant last, 9.5D in AE rough collection and Barrie last. I gave up on C&J and European sizing, figure I have an American made foot and am fine with that.

 

 

I have two pairs: one in shell and one in shark.  Unfortunately, neither are this specific color combo:

In regards to the Nordstrom sale that everybody is waiting on. Just found this information off reddit. As expected, the sale price for AE shoes offered by Nordstrom increased but it is still very good. If you speak to the manager, he/she might be able to help you order another color (for example: I was able to get the McAllister in Burgundy last year even though only black was on sale), so just call or email to enquire. 

 

Strands - Walnut - $239.90

Neumok - Blue & Acorn - $182.90

Park Avenue - Black & Brown - $242.90

LaSalle - Chili Burnished & Black - $214.90

McAllister - Black - $242.90

 

The top-2 selling shoes are on sale (PA in Black and Strands in Walnut), so this is great time if you're on the fence about them. For reference, only the McAllister was on sale last season.  When was the last time Nordy offered 3 top-selling shoes in one sale (McAllister, PA and Strands). With a quintessential 5-shoe rotation (semi- formal to business casual, one can argue favorably that a PA in black, McAllister in burgundy and Strand in Walnut belong in everyone's wardrobe.

Very helpful, thank you. I've been on the fence about getting some black shell parks vs the leather ones offered in this sale

$80 for a new MTO in that makeup is fantastic! My snuff Amok's are perfect as a casual summer shoe. I'm jealous of these in green - wish the amok was still available to MTO, I would get them made in every shade of suede available!

Adventures in "Patination".......

I usually use Meltonian Saddle color shoe cream on my Allen Edmonds tan Voyagers. I was out of Meltonian Saddle, so I used Allen Edmonds Light Brown shoe cream.  I am planning on ordering some brown shoelaces now........

Thanks for the info MWS!

Would having a pair of black Rutledges in addition to a pair of black Park Aves be redundant? I already have a pair of the latter, but am considering pickup up a pair of the Rutledges for a less formal pair of black shoes. Thoughts?
