You know, I still don't know what to think of those. Part of me is intrigued, the other part shrivels. HaHa.

I just gave my 16 year old son, the pair of my first Allen Edmunds shoes that I have been saving for him, for 32 years. PRICELESS, both for the moment with my son, and the fact that he knew the significance of what I was giving him. I highly recommend that many of you younger chaps plan for the same.

Can you take a picture of the 32 year old shoe? Would love to see how the shoe aged throughout this duration.

My 7 year old has his eye on a few pairs already... Great story and very cool! Congrats

Not sure I could pull off the chukka wingtip, but I was really intrigued by the the blue banchory (LWB).  It's the same very soft, supple (unlined??) material.  They are extremely comfortable and casual.  Couldn't figure out what I would wear them with, though.  So I didn't pull the trigger.  If I find them cheap at the Shoe Bank I might reconsider.

It was the right size for him?

I may just grab a belt or something and wait out for RDA.

"savings of 15-35% off ALL factory-second shoes"

This implies that all shell is included, and they'll be at most $424. They'll probably be $399.

I get you Mike...it's really an oddball of a design but in terms of comfort these are probably my most comfortable pair. Not sure what leather they used here but this unlined leather is buttery soft and the gumlite sole is light and has a lot of "give". These are more comfortable than my Jack Purcells and Tiger Onitsukas which says a lot.

I was looking at that too. I can imagine navy, burgundy, or khaki chinos. And of course denim, the dark indigo kind.

Indeed, he is already a 12/13, as I was at 16. Big hands and big feet, run in the family.

IMHO, the banchory (and your chukka) is easily the most comfortable make-up AE makes.  You may have just talked me into finding a pair.  Blue might be hard to find.  Not a fan of the gray, and I already have a pair of Naty Chrmxl LWB from Alden which makes the tan banchory a no go.  Will post pics if I acquire a pair.  All the best...

For me, the Banchory would go best with Chino's and jeans. Not sure how the would look with dress pants. I have my eyes on them and a few other AE's but decisions I tell ya.

Good luck with search! Can't speak for the soles of the Banchory, as that uses a different sole as the Chukkamok, but you will be very happy with the suppleness of the uppers. No breaking in required.

+1 on this. I wouldnt try them on dress pants.

Caveat: unless an MTO gets downchecked. There are some burgundy shell MacNeils in my size that appeared in the shoebank a couple weeks before mine showed up; I'm kicking myself for not grabbing them as a backup pair back in February when shell seconds were $299.
