 @halfnhalfnhalf - What shoes did you wear on the float?

 

Lol.  I was wondering if someone would ask this question.  Krewe du Vieux (the parade I marched in) doesn't have floats that you ride on - they're pulled by mules and instead of riding on them you walk the (three- or four-mile) route behind them.  As for what I wore, I wanted to wear black boots with my costume, and none of my AE boots are black.  I was very tempted to wear my black shell tankers (Alden) instead.  But, in the end, I chickened out, and wore my old motorcycle boots (Wolverine, Chinese-made but at least Goodyear-welted).

Chukkas are nice, but these bad boys + some HDLP have kept me nice and dry in these past few slushy weeks.

(cc @7_rocket) - the popular wisdom seems to be to go a width wider in the 222 last. For myself, as a 3E, I went a half-length longer. On a cap-toe like the Eagle county, I get creasing on the cap, but it's incredibly comfortable.

I did the same size for the Daltons as my 65 last AE's also.

You're probably right. I got the brooks brother version at a great price. My left foot is fine but its my right pinky toe that was hurting around when it was time to go home. I'm sure it will stretch out if i keep wearing it weekly (I hope)

Thanks! I'm a size 10 E on the 5 last. I read that the Gobis run wide, so I went with size 10 D, which is perfect, even with thick socks.

You know, I have to pick this next pair very carefully. Like many on here, my wife has started asking the dreaded question, "how many more shoes are you going to buy?" when I went to look at the Gobi last weekend. This is only after 4 pairs. I haven't yet told her I've got a $200 GC burning a hole in my pocket from the $50 off Amex deal in December. happy.gif

Yeah buddy! You may be pushing me over the edge! I'd been leaning towards the golden Rush Streets. If I could do that for firsts vs. $220 seconds sale price, that would be sweet.

I know I'm the guy who says he prefers the mocc stitching on Alden's NST, but for half the price, I'm quite satisfied with this model.

Overall, very pleased with this purchased.





(Dry shell on the right side below. What are we recommending for conditioner? Lexol? Bick4? VSC? Saphir cordo cream?)

It's taking every bit of my will power to resist buying the 2nds shell Bradleys! You just made it much more difficult. Quick somebody buy those before I lose all control!

Let me rationalize this a little more for you - like I mentioned earlier, unless you're in the market for the BB models, I don't think the seconds sale is too impressive.  Take the Rush Street - they are already discontinuing the blue and green, which leaves just the one color.  They will either introduce new colors later this year or discontinue the line entirely.  Either way, the price of the second goes way down.  But what will happen to the first?  Do you really think it will drop below $200?  Highly unlikely - so I think it's a pretty safe bet.

 

Yeah that Amex thing - I knew there was a reason why I had 3 separate Amex cards....:) Unfortunately I only did the deal twice.  Purchasing four pairs at the same time as my Surface Pro 3 i7 was a big hit all at once.

Let me rationalize it for you. Tell your wife she is right, and you're moving on to collecting fancy shotguns. Won't take her long to appreciate the shoes, when she sees those price tags.

Can you, or someone else post pics of the San Marco? They are available for $97 from shoe bank, and want to get them but unsure.

Is a casual PTB an essential shoe in you guys minds?
