My new pair of Kenilworth (black) :).
Got in on clearance sale from AE website combined with $50 AMEX promo. Final price ~ $161
Jomocs are on the 7 last, which I think fits a little fuller in the toe box than the 1 last. That's been my experience anyway.
I have my eye on a pair of those Fifth Ave. on Shoe Bank....good to hear a positive opinion on them!
I have 3 pair; 5th Ave black, Parliament chili; 5th Street boot, brown.
I'm really loving the 5th street... got these at an outlet for $130.... Had a factory done rubber sole overlay, but apparently weren't accepted by whoever ordered them.
So comfortable, and very rich brown color.
Overspray from the sink washing hands or from the upright urinal...
Yes, they are splendid. One thing, they will not really look like "boots"... they are really more like a "hi-top" dress shoe. They offer some more support and warmth than dress shoes, but otherwise are a dress shoe.
Did you have polish/wax on them prior? If so between brushing/polish etc you should be fine...I had a single water droplets hit my shaker heights which is a softer leather and one drop found it would seem the one small area I missed with treatment and the stain is still there..learned my lesson though...everything gets a thin coat of polish,nano spray, leather defender etc before first wear.
