Interesting I am normally in that camp completely yet for some reason the round eyelet design area and what seems in the picture a closer sole edge to shoe ratio did not even draw my eye to the sole thickness...almost seems like it is a sole and 1/2....if that makes any sense.

 

I would like that shoe in that brown chamois with the mini lug for about half the price of the Alden...

I just pulled the trigger on some Chili Shaker Heights 2nds from the Shoe Bank - I am weak and couldn't resist the price.

Wish me luck with the 2nds - I'm hoping the flaws are minimal. I'm not too picky so I can live with some things knowing they are 2nds. I'm just hoping it isn't structural or a major flaw.

Does anybody have the Shaker Heights? If so, how have you liked them. I have the Dalton boot, but I think this plain toe with the tweed will be enough contrast to justify two AE boots.

Love my Chili shaker heights and they were my staple boot for all my cord's last winter. I will say that you def. want to treat them with something when you get them - the leather in my case water stained from a stray drop of water - I originally used neutral past wax and must have missed a spot. It is also a very comfortable walking boot.

 

Tanks to the Shaker heights I plan ti pick up a few tweed pants this year.

Love them.

A tad roomy, though. Oh, and the leather doesn't play nice with rain. Not sure what kind it is. Perchance Nappa? #notanexpert

I'm with Kahuna on this one.  I've never been a fan of the MacNeil, but the aesthetics of the McGregor and the 5 last make it very appealing to me.  Besides, don't worry about the stock model, because we're going to do a GMTO of this one in burgundy shell with a double JR sole, right?  :stirpot:

Looks good, bud.

Just got my recrafting specs approved for my sun faded Leeds, in about a month I should see them in person. Hoping this really makes it into a great all purpose casual cordovan PTB that I can really beat up and add some patina to over the years. Now I just have to hope AE follows the specs that they approved...

 

 

Banchory welt/edge color and welt stitching
Mini lug tap outsole
Rush Street tan laces
DO NOT refinish the uppers

LOL...I hope you used a bigger font that on the "DO NOT" part :)

 

I think the mini lug heel needs a re-design...I am a recent convert to mini lug and always stayed away as I did not like the lug profile on the heel- I feel like it should be a closed outer heel with the lug on the inside...Nitpicking...sure but it kept me away from that sole for a long time...like 6 months :)

Wearing Walnut Lombards. which are rather like Players except that they have lovely Poiron insoles and safe and comfortable rubber soles and heels.....

Burgundy dundee seconds came in today. They look perfect. I went over the whole shoe for a couple minutes and maybe it's a slight discoloration on one toe. Not noticeable at all. Even in direct sunlight.

So, what do I do before my first wear? I have some venetian shoe cream, per horween's recommendation. Do I apy the vsc and then brush and buff?
