Has anyone seen the Swims Mobster boot overshoes lower than $149 on the AE website?


I picked up these from a an additional 40% off last fall.  They are awesome!

 

 


Perfect for shell boots (and shoes) in the winter.  With the additional 40% off I got these for $53.  Well worth it!  :nodding:

From whence? I'm thinking these are what I need. I've just about beat my Long Branches to Hell over the past two weeks.

Thanks @tradbrah , @LordRasta  and @Neo1  on the Cavanaugh fit comments. Sounds like a tough call with loafers in general.  I couldn't get a foot in a 9.5D Randolph, but my heel would slip with a 10D.  However a tongue pad did make the fit lengthwise perfect.  No slip at all.  It's just that the toe area is a bit tight.  Definitely not as comfortable as my 65 last models.

 

Oh well, the Cavanaugh may be off the list anyway.  When I showed my better half these and the Gobi I went to look at, she said "I don't like that material." Rut roh!


I can't help but be a broken record on this - you should take a look at the Italian collection too.  The Firenze, Positano/Brindisi, Verona, they are definitely worth considering.  There are much better options than the Cavanaugh....

BTW - if you wind up getting the Dundee, you should have your SA yell out - I'm not gonna marry Richard.  See?  Much funnier than that whole clown crap.

I agree with the Tingley recommendation 100%.  I got some for about $20 on Amazon vs. the $95 AE wants for a pair of swims, plus they cover more of your shoe.  Have worn them in some nasty stuff and haven't had any problems.

2. Get those vibrams into the picture front and center - they are the most comfortable shoes ever made.

Thanks for the info.  I LOVE my vibrams.  They are the most comfy shoes ever.  I've got several pairs.

I am a known two tone shoe whore....AE Broadstreets are among my favorites and I have the AE Heritage converted to regular shoe..plus a terrible venture into a MTO with a red and tan AE...that I had to re-color...LOL I have the Blue Rush St, Blue Neumok, and Olive Nuemok.....

 

Actually one of my next purchase may be finally breaking down and getting an Alden Longwing shoe in two tone brown leather...

Absolutely not.  I like simple and plain, but I also like two and three tone stuff if it's well done.  I'm not dead yet.

Thanks, I ran by one of the stores today and tried on a pair of shoes made on the 2592 last.  They were definitely a bit tight feeling.  I'm going to go with an E instead of a D.  For me the 65 is ok in a D (but an E might be ok too), but for a 2592, I think I'm going to have to have an E.

 

Thanks

Thank you all for your input. The Swims look great @ReppTiePrepster. I will settle for the Tingley overshoes for now, which doesn't look bad at all and are currently $30 on Amazon. I wish I have asked for advise before this horrible winter! :freeze:

How did you size them? I know they have a chart, but have seen mixed reviews on the sizing. I would certainly be interested in getting some. Thanks for the info.

I've read that just because one shoe is on the same last as another doesn't mean the sizing will be the same....
Struggling with this right now; I have really developed a liking for the Mora, but can't get it to fit. 11.5 D is too big by far, 11D is good in length and feels ok at first, but after I have them on my feet for a few minutes (test wearing around the house) I can tell they won't be comfortable. My feet aren't compatible with the shape I guess. The toes of the Mora taper in where me feet are broadening out! Don't think 11E would work either, since on the D widths I have to fasten the buckles on the last hole to be snug enough; for reference I have Strands, PA, Universities all in 11.5 D and a Cambridge shell in 11E that all fit well.

Those look great for their age. I just ordered a pair in brown. I hope they hold up as well after 25 years.
