Thanks to those who chimed in on the shell prices.  The # listed was the consumer assistance center, apparently this pair was in the warehouse.  I called and the CAC phoned the warehouse and they said there were no noticeable imperfections whatsoever.

 

Seemed odd, but worth a potential $10 restocking fee gamble.  Fingers crossed gents.

What shoe is this?

 

Nevermind, I should have looked first. Hope they turn out well.

I never got to get my hands on the Players. What would be a good alternative to that shoe. The Mcgregor seems a bit to formal and stuffy. Thx

What do you call the password for an orgy full of people wearing masks?

You are so making me want to call the Shoebank for a pair of Dundees.

Everyone should go on a spending hiatus from the Shoe Bank for 4-6 months. That should create a decent surplus and hopefully allow a shell sale to be needed.

Would someone please explain the "Mac" method to me? I don't know what that is.

You might want to wait for the Player 2.0, but it could be months or even a year before it's released. I don't know the timing...

 

AE has no direct replacement for the Player at this time, as it's a short-wing blutcher. AE has no other SWB shoe, but they do have a boot via the Dalton / Long Branch. Anything else will sacrifice the short-wing design for a long-wing, or the blutcher for being a bal... and I presume if you think the McGregor is too formal and stuffy, that you'll probably thing the same of bals. However, some of the short-wing balmorials AE carries are quite casual despite being close-laced... the Neumok and McTavish, in particular. The McAllister being the more formal version of that pattern.

 

The McGregor is a long-wing, and while I think it's sufficiently casual, especially in suede, to each their own.  You might have overlooked the Larchmont, another long-wing blutcher, which is on the 333 last and has a chisel toe.

Yeah...you're right. The only other shoe I could see working was the walnut Jefferson. I'll try on the Mcgregor tomorrow
