I thought you'd like to know there some more Shell Cordovan wallets up on massdrop from Ashland Leather for $95.99 (once 20 buy it)

 

https://www.massdrop.com/r/5EQ5WK  

 

It's the Bugs Moran version....and they only have 150 of them. I bought one because its' roomier than my Little Louis from Ashland.

All,

Was hoping to get your opinions on few things. Purchased the Sanford's new on Ebay. Upon receiving the shoes noticed few things, which were not disclosed by the seller:
1. The right sole is marked "FR". I am assuming it means factory reject. Are they the same as factory seconds?
2. As you can see in the pics from behind, both hills have an angulation from wide to narrow. Is this some sort of defect. I don't feel it while walking.
3. The hills on both don't sit flat ( compared with another pair). I feel this a little while walking. Will this go away with ware.

Thanks

There's no sun here to take a picture, but if you want to see them in really bad lighting, here goes:

Merlot McAllister vs. Bob's Chili Bleecker Street.

Love them both, but love the Bleecker Street slightly more.

Perfect- thanks! I suppose it would be smart to go with brown Bleecker Streets since I have merlot Eagle Countys on the way. Too close of a color here!

Do you mean the heels, by "hills"?
And yes, those are defective shoes that if the seller didn't disclose as seconds, you should return.

Thanks. I stand corrected, I should have wrote heels.

I can leave with factory seconds, especially considering the amount that I paid. However, I am concerned that the heels are angulated and that they not rest flat. Everything else seems fine. Are the heels going to cause any problems?

hey guys,

 

Question about heel repairs: does AE use nails when they attach heels to their shoes? The reason I ask is because a lot of shoe repair companies use nails and I wasn't sure what affect that had on the shoe. 

 

thanks.

I've seen this a lot on seconds. Are these firsts or seconds?

Yes they can cause gait problems leading to back, knee and ankle pain. I would not chance it.

Here are a couple of pictures of my new Jomoc seconds that I just picked up.  One solo and one side-by-side with my Alden chukkas for comparison.

^ Fit pics? Looks similar to the kenilworth. What last?

Is that the "tan"?

97 Last

Known more simply as the 7 last, the 97 last is the best fit for the average foot. The 97 last is one of Allen Edmonds early lasts, and has a soft, slightly pointed toe. It lays flatter in the toe area for a classic American look.

They are the tan.  The fit is similar to my McTavish--snug heel, roomy toe box.  But it feels like they have better arch support than the McTavish.  I thought they looked like the Alden chukkas with the two eyelets, only chopped down low in the back.  They do have kind of the same shape as the Kenilworth, but the same flap closure as the chukkas and they have the double thick soles and the split reverse welt.  Two thumbs up in my book.

Those Jomocs look way better in your pics than on the AE site! Gonna have to keep an eye out for those on the Shoebank!

And you'll have to remember to be quick.  There were two pairs in my size on shoebank when the sale started and now they are all gone--somebody else must have got the other pair.  That seemed strange since every time I go to the shoebank, it seems like it's all the same shoes day after day.
