Okay! I have deets on the Gobi, AE's new desert boot.

 

The Gobi is entering the regular stock lineup at $295. It's manufactured on the 809 last in B, D, and EEE widths. As it's just hitting shelves, most or all out there are D width, but we should expect EEE and maybe B widths in the next 1-2 weeks.

 

Colors are navy suede, snuff suede, olive suede, and tan saddle. Again, this shoe, unlike the Amok, is lined and has a Dainite sole. The last, the 809, is the same as the Mojave.

I have had heel slippage lessen in my Addison's and a few others..I have used the AE ortho insert in my Clark St and once the shoe broke in I ended up taking it out and the shoe fit much better...odd I know but that is what happened but never in a boot yet

That's some serious will power there. I was on AE calfs for a few months, then, BANG! I graduated to shell.

Oh well, no shell PAs for me, at least not in this sale.

My local store called. It seems that the only black shell 11.5 D Park Aves in the system could not be ordered due to large depressions on one of the toes. Inconsolable and despondent, I considered trying for a pair of shell Leeds or Dundees, but I want black shell PAs and have begun talking myself into springing for a first-quality pair.

I ordered a pair of chili Shaker Heights boots because they seem like a good deal at $127, and went home. I hope everyone else has had better luck sourcing their desired shoes!

I just finished brushing up my bourbon Strands for a wedding this weekend and every time I pull these out I am mesmerized by the color:

Thanks Kahuna! I can't wait for the Shaker Heights. I almost purchased them a few times at full price, but talked myself out of it because my need for a boot is pretty sparse - At the current price it's a no brainer, and I will likely grab a pair in dark brown as well. I am a huge fan of the look of that boot.

I'm also pretty happy that so far I have been able to avoid seeing any shoes in the new Bob's Chili color. It looks so good in pictures!

I had a pair of Shaker Height seconds but they had a heel issue, it was very uneven and rocked as if it was balled. @Kahuna75 do you have a similar issue with your heels?

Love my Shakers too! I had them MTOed with Dainite soles when they were on sale for $300 last year. A steal at 127$!!!



Wearing them now in my private lesson studio at Hunter College which is really a supply closet. Ah, the joys of being adjunct faculty. Sigh...

3 hours left on the Group MTO brown grain and merlot ECs. Any last minute joiners?

Congrats on the 10th pair of shell, I seem to recall trying to warn you when you were considering your first pair of shell to see what it was all about :) You have a fantastic collection of shell shoes GOP, very well done.

Yes, you warned me. It is like heroin, not that I have ever done heroin, but I can imagine it is close to the same thing. 

 

Shell shoes:

 

Macneil - Walnut MTO natural welt

Macneil - Walnut MTO brown welt

Macneil - Black

Dalton - Burgundy No. 8

Strand - Brown

Franciscan - New Burgundy MTO

Grayson - Burgundy No. 8

Jefferson - Brown

Patriot - Brown

Park Avenues - Black

 

I feel like I need a pair of brown shell Bayfields....     Heroin....

Guys, this is a dumb question, but if I wanted Daltons in a C width, I'd have to get them MTOd, right? Is that even possible anymore?

 

Chocolate Daltons in 13C are my grail, but I think I'm SOL.

That's an interesting question. They do have the Leeds in C width but none of the boots or chukka in the same 511 last (Dundees, Dalton) are available in C width. So you are right, if they can do it, it would be MTO.
