Hmm. I tried on a 10.5 3e Williams in Riverhead and it seemed ok, maybe just a tad narrow. Maybe I'll try again just to double check.

Note this is based on pinching problems I have on a 222 lasted boot I already own. It's only an issue with the thicker socks I wear in winter.

Damn. The black Shaker Heights look killer, even with the skewed tweed pattern. wow.gif

Stand by, I think I took a picture comparing the two, but not in the perfect lighting. Not at home, but let me see if I can get it out of my phones library.

I for one will not get the MacGregor in bobs chili. Will get the walnut burnished. But that's only because I plan on getting the Bleecker street in bobs chili. Lovely color.

Bought a pair of odenwalds, excited to be part of the allen edmonds family! What kind of shoe care would you recommend for these boots? Waterproofing? Shoe trees? Leather lotion? etc. 

 

These are my first higher end pair of leather footwear, so I want to protect them as best I can. Ideally I would not spend more than $30 on this. There are a ton of products that do different things and I can't figure out which ones I actually need and which are auxiliary. 

 

I don't plan on wearing these more than twice a week but will be outside a fair amount, and as I am in Chicago will be dealing with some snow, rain, salt, and ice. I'm more concerned about protecting the leather and don't care much for keeping them shiny. 

 

Thanks! :D

I just received my Burgundy Cordovan Macneils and was wondering for those of you that have these, is your shade of Burgundy Macneils really dark? The ones I received look almost black.

I included a comparison shot with my Burgundy Cordovan Leeds which seems a shade lighter.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks Burzan! I recommend getting one if ever they come up with a suede version.i think they're a great alternative to penny loafers and bluchers for casual get ups.

You should design shoes for AE lol. I'm telling you, they need something.

Thanks guys! Not everything's a homerun though :-) but would be happy to see if AE uses some of our MTO designs.

Had an engagement shoot this past weekend. Got a good shot of the Dundee's. Though a bit dusty.

Congratulations on your new Oldenwalds! Per the AE website, they recommend Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion. I don't know if you got the football grain, leather, or chromexcel, but either way the Leather Lotion will work well. I wouldn't worry about waterproofing unless you plan to get them very wet quite often. And definitely get shoe trees. They will greatly extend the life of your shoes. I was taught if your feet aren't in them, shoes trees should be in them. Shoe trees about $20 (can be found much cheaper on sale some places) and AE Leather Lotion about $9 - so in your budget.

Keep them cleaned off with a damp cloth if you walk in the slush, snow, etc. And put some AE Leather Lotion on them periodically and you should be good to go.

Check the AE site for care tips. Go to you boot and click the "care" tab for more information.

I think those are gorgeous! My burgundy Macneils looked very similar. It's mostly polish. I really like the dark appearance. If you choose to, you can use the water and brushing method to get down to the shell. Good luck!
