It has come to my attention that there is some skepticism regarding the validity of my inquiries about the variations of Chili. Namely Chili Burnished as compared to Bobs Chili, and Dark Chili. So just to clear the air on this issue





My apologies in advance for the atrocious picture quality

Cleaned up my Walnut Shell Daltons earlier today...


Considering letting them go as I get so little use out of them.  I've owned them for more than a year and I can count on one hand how many times I've used them.

I'm pretty sure there will be more than one person interested in these. Size?

Two pairs of Sheltons have made their way across the Atlantic for me to try on.

I, too, loved the look and price of the chili Shaker Heights!! Has me debating the dark brown pair up on the shoebank.

 

As far as fit, I sized up 0.5 in length and that seems like perfect move, esp when wearing medium weight book socks. After initial break-in and 3-4 wears, I'm noticing some inconsistencies in the footbed. On the left shoe, the "lump" coming off the instep is much more pronounced and directionally heads towards the toe, as it goes across towards the outer side of the shoe - rather than moving towards the heel (like the right shoe and the shape of one's foot).

 

The discrepancy isn't too noticeable when walking, but very obvious when standing still. It's like I have to readjust my instep over and over by wiggling my foot around. To make sure I wasn't crazy, I asked my wife to feel inside each and tell me if she felt any differences. She definitely picked up on it.

 

Thoughts??? Do you guys think this will go away with more wears? Or is this a manufacturing flaw? After disappearing for about a week, 1 pair of chili's re-popped up in my size. Has me wondering if this was the reason.

 

This is my second straight 2nds purchase that has had footbed issues. My suede Fullertons just went back after the heel area developed an issue of the leather rolling and creating a series of small ridges.

Current closed-laced shoes are: Park Ave (black calf & burgundy shell), Fifth Ave (brown), Strand (bourbon), and McAllister (merlot calf & cappuccino shell). The new purchase would primarily be worn with dress slacks & the occasional khakis, as I wear my closed-laced shoes with suits. If anyone has both the Bradley and MacNeil, would be interested to know the difference in the fits & which one gets worn more.

I own both and they are two of my favorite shoes. The MacNeil is a bit dressier than the Bradley and overall finds more uses in my wardrobe. The Bradley is an awesome shoe, but is something I end up wearing mostly with jeans and occasionally khakis. I find the fit to be roomier on the Bradley, the MacNeil is a bit snug in the toe box, but for most not enough to size up.

If you love them, set them free.  ;)

At the risk of turning this into an Alden vs AE discussion (and with the disclaimer that I own more AE shoes (18) than I do Alden (0), I find the overall shape of the Bradley to be boring and unattractive. If I were to drop 650 on a split toe blucher, I would definitely choose the Alden NST over the Bradley any day. I find the Alden's shape and toe stitching to be more attractive.

I feel the opposite about the LWB. Prefer the MacNeil.

They will be too big for you WI. Sorry. I had a pair for a year or so and never wore them and so I sold my pair also. Took a lot longer than I thought.

I would agree...I own an nst boot and love it...I did see a picture of a shell Bradley on eBay at one point an was shocked it was AE as the stitching looked Alden like. Also agree about the longwings though I think alden suede longwings look nicer for some reason than the suede McGregor.

So basically I added nothing to the conversation.

Thanks for the info. Was about to use my gift card, but I'll wait 'til this sale.
