Thanks all who responded re my Promontory Point inquiry. Definitely keeping them, looking forward to getting use out of them for Chicago winters to come.

Zombie, sweet analysis you shared. I prefer the 8 last to the wolverine.

Funny thing is I tend to think some lasts from AE are a bit bulkier than I like. Especially compared to Euro counterparts. Here there is a narrower sleeker last that I like yet others on AE's review page complain it's too narrow. Go figure.

Recent acquisition from my local Allen Edmonds store, Shell Leeds. These were labeled as burgundy but clearly are not

They are in fact Burgundy, however there are always variations in the shell color. 

They look great. Enjoy them.

It is interesting how much variation there can be in the shell, I feel that these shoes could almost pass for alden's color 4 cordovan.

 

I was very excited to pick up what I thought to be a fairly rare color of shell.

Amazing depth of colour!

Got mine earlier in the week.  They look MUCH darker than the brown in your pic (lighting?).  Despite receiving an EEE width instead of the E that I ordered I was able to make them work with a tongue pad.  Heel pads don't seem necessary yet but we'll see.  I did try on an E and it was PERFECT.  I can't really complain given the price.  Agreed about the leather quality - it really is "glove soft"!

You re right, a bit of lighting. They are a lot darker than the regular AE dark brown. However, I hit them with a light coat of reno and they seem to lighten up a bit

Double Eagles on the green this morning. Unfortunately only one eagle for the day.

The AE golf socks are a little tall.

As I would be also, those look fantastic! Congrats on your new shell Leeds.

Anyone notice the Rutledge shoes soak up everything? Water instantly, polish there's none to buff off after it gets in there, conditioner darkens the shoes for days. Anyways because the shoe doesn't bead of anything it's picked up NYC street grime too easy.

I've had difficulty with Mine as well. A very light application of Reno removed nearly half of the burnishing. Additionally, it looks as if flakes of color finishing are falling off in the creases. frown.gif

Excellent PTBs.  I've actually seen several AE burgundy shell make-ups patina/change and lighten to this color.  I love it!  :slayer:
