CORDOVAN PSA BOSTON MARKET



My name is James Pietryka and I am the Manager of the Allen Edmonds store on State Street in Downtown Boston. On Tuesday November 18th from 4:00 - 7:00pm, we will be hosting the Cordovan "trunk show" for the Boston Market.



Ryan from our Chicago store posted some details for their event but here is the info again in case you missed it! For our event, we will have a limited amount of rare shell cordovan colors: Navy, Green, Deep Dark Brown and Natural Brown. These special colors will be limited to 25 pairs per color on the following styles: Park Avenue, Leeds, MacNeil, Dundee, Strand and Patriot. The $125 custom charge will be waived for this event. In addition, you will also be allowed to customize the outsole, insole, lining, eye stays and various other specs for no additional charge. Any shoe not listed in the offer can be had with the additional $125 custom charge.



We will also offer to everybody the chance to order any of our current dress welts in either Burgundy or Black Shell Cordovan for the standard Cordovan prices ($650 shoe/$725 boot) with the custom fee waived.



Please feel free to get in touch with me with any questions as I am now accepting preorders for this event. We expect to have some leather samples in store soon as well.



I hope to see you all at the event. If you can't make it, just email or call and we can put your order in.



Best Regards,



James

Thanks for the info James, One question. When you say you can do any dress welt in Burgundy and Black with the fee waived, what about the standard Brown cordovan?

Our standard Brown Shell is on the table as well for the event.

Thanks for the compliments! It's always a pleasure to help with your group MTOs on here. You guys have a lot of great ideas!

Will the current models for Burgundy, brown and black shell be available for full MTO modification as well?

Yes you will be able to customize the different specs that I highlighted in the original post.

When the pre-order is confirmed, the day of the trunk show at that particular store, upon delivery, or something else?

The orders will be processed the day of the stores event. Any preorders taken will be held and charged during the event.

Just received these new Bleecker boots. The style number is the brown I ordered, but these look more Bourbon than Brown. I have the Bourbon & Brown Park Avenue to compare. AE told me to send them back. bummer.

Still looking for some advice on polishing up my Bob's Chili Fifth Aves.  The store says to use the Chili polish, which makes sense, but I'm wondering if anyone here has tried mixing in some brown polish as well?   It's a great color, but I don't want it any redder than it is.  Let me know if you have any thoughts.

That looks like the right color to me. Brown burnished is different from dark brown burnished, which is what your park ave is made from.

Speaking of polishing, how do you guys who own the walnut Rutledge/Harrison polish without losing that gorgeous burnishing? I think I've read posts of people stripping the burnishing off using Reno and/or AE conditioner.

The fact that there's apparently a shell shortage and they decided to make shell in green is kind of mind boggling.

Does green require the flawlessness in the raw shell that natural, whiskey, brandy, ravello, and all the browns do? Granted it's Clayton shell, but my green shell wallet looks navy or black in the right light (or lack thereof), so I assumed green and navy are closer to burgundy/color 8 and black in terms of ease of production.

I try not touch any of my burnished shoes outside of brushing ...when I have to I use neutral and tread lightly...there is no way at home you are going to re-create the burnish once you remove it...sure you could muddle some black and probably get a decent result but certainly not what was once there.
