Not that anybody would put a ruler on my shoes, but just to scale the difference for those looking through their phones and PCs. The left shoes's wingtips and eyestays are quarter of an inch higher than the right shoes. If it was just the wingtip I would have probably been fine with it but because the eyestay have shifted as well it has resulted to almost closed eyestay gap on the left shoe when laced.

 

My Ridgeways, purchased as seconds had this exact same problem. It took me 2 weeks to figure out why they were seconds: the wingtips were about a quarter to a half inch higher/lower on the shoes. No problem with the eyelets, however. As seconds, I counted myself lucky. With firsts, I'd be more picky.

Is this an accurate representation of AE Burgundy Shell? Seems darker than I expected.

In the end I sent Allison an email. Everytime I look down I see closed eyestays at the top of my left shoe and a perfect gap on the right shoe. I couldn't get passed it. Of course I can always put a tongue pad on the left shoe - which id do if these were seconds but with firsts I thought if ask what can be done.

I've been hemming and hawing over a pair of Ostrich Randolph loafers in chili on the shoebank for a couple of months now, ostrich holds a special place in my heart as I visited Thailand around the age of 15 and had the worst pair of square toe loafers ever made in black ostrich. It was a miracle: bespoke in 12 hours!M satisfied.gif

They are $450 I believe. Any experience with AE Ostrich here?

The color seems right to me, but I'd agree it looks a bit dark on their website.  My < 4 months old burgundy shell Cambridges are lighter. See my recent pics here:

Great. Another to add to the fight. And here I was wondering how I missed those 11.5Ds. Gonna have to have a talk with Earl about this.

Question for the recent Shaker Heights owners:  how tall is the shaft on this boot?

 

Since I'm not used to wearing boots, I greatly preferred the Bleecker Streets compared to the Daltons and Long Branches I tried on.  I'd guess it's a good 2 inches shorter.

 

Thanks,

Rich

Shakers are same height as Long Branch.

Sounds like you're looking for an ankle boot.

Amazing that I did not think that was the case...I guess the Shaker's seem less tall do to the supple Napa leather..completely different feel when wearing.

These were found in a concept store. They had been ordered for one of their clients who never returned, and the shoes were not entered back into the system. They did not show at Shoebank and it took my rep almost a half hour of calling to uncover them. I had originally asked about the size 11 Ds that were showing at Shoebank, but they were no longer available.

Somehow, I'm guessing likely due to the popularity of the brown shell Strand, John at the Destin store remembered the unicorn pair of 11.5Ds, and found and called the store. Since homeboy had yet to pick them up, they were mine. I really lucked out as I wouldn't have these shoes without John's insane memory.






I can't get enough of this color.

So I went to my local store yesterday pretty much intent on buying a pair of chili McGregors. The color is amazing in person but I didn't fall in love with the shoe on my foot. I left empty handed. I think I'll wait for chili strands to show up in my size

Gotcha, thats good your SA. My old SA was like that, however no longer there frown.gif Were they 2nds or 1sts? I think you told me but can't remember. I think I'm following the same lines as yourself and really preferring the captoes vs wingtps. However a big fan of long wings.
