Depending on their specific location and traffic, it could be as little as 2 hours. Being a native of the area, that's a fantastic editing job to make Port Washington pretty looking rather than bland, haha.

Yeah I paid $199 last year for a pair of chocolate Daltons, and honestly I wasn't even all that interested in them/didn't particularly need them.  But the price was amazing and lower than I'd ever seen, so I took a chance and when they came in the mail, fortunately it was love at first sight.

 

Not the best way to justify a purchase, in hindsight.  But it worked out for me.

I'm finding myself pretty tempted by the mora's again, as well as the promontory point, shaker heights, and gobi.

 

:/

Also is the different insole not going to form to my foot over time as the non BB ones would?

I went up a width in BB shoes. The insole isn't soft and squishy, but it definitely takes up some room.

Speaking of Daltons, anyone know where I can get a pair of 48" light tan/"alabaster" laces for my chocolate Daltons?  

 

Basically I want these:  http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF934_1_40000000001_-1_934

 

Except longer.

Just ordered a pair of choc daltons and would love a pair of laces in that color.

Mora 2.0 vs. Neuroma? Thoughts?

The Neumora fits me much better, as the 3 last runs wider in the ball than the 8 last. Not sure what the differences are, besides a different last....

Ever since seeing the US Ryder Cup team wearing them in the opening ceremony, I am tempted to get a pair of Dalton when they go on sales at the Show Bank, but I just didn't expect it so soon. smile.gif

Should I get AE Player's Shoes or McGregors for the upcoming sale? Looks like Player Shoes will be like $20 cheaper. Doing walnut for both -- would like something business casual, potentially work with a suit but more for slacks/blazer looks. Any reason I should be considering one over the other besides price?

Yes, the Players is on the 2 last, while the MacGregor is on the 5. I believe the 5 is easier to fit, while the 2 can lead to things like creases in the toe-box. If you are more familiar with one of those lasts, then stick with it, or go to a store and find out which last feels better on your feet. Of all the AE lasts I have tried, the 2 is the least comfortable, and my feet are pretty comfortable in almost all their lasts.

Great -- I have strands, which is the same lasts as the MacGregor. Any clue if they have a BB version that will be cheaper (or any wingtip version)? Sorry -- newbie in the AE game and can only figure out so much on my own.

Do you really want that kind of karma?? Those guys really pissed me off, esp. the guy who I saw wearing the AEs (Keagen Bradley)!!

Absolutely agree! To put it bluntly, the two last stinks. Haven't seen or tried the McGregor. It seems odd to use the five last on a longwing blucher. The five last is classically used with AE's iconic oxford/balmorals. I'm curious though.

Apparently it is all Tom Watson's fault and not the players', including Keegan. smile.gif

The boots are innocent.
