Got my Natural Shell MacNeils yesterday.



All the specs are good. Just have to deal with some misaligned eyestays.

I too think this will be a great EC and impatiently await my own pair... just another week or two!

Yeah it's mostly a function of photography (lighting + camera). @CMT1 is also a phenomenal photographer, and I am not.

Also there's the fact that these were fresh out of the box and I hadn't polished them or anything yet. The color in person is very vivid.

Thanks bruh man, but it's really just the lens.



I also usually use a bounce flash to bring out the color, but the Dalton pic had another light source above it so I ended up processing out a bit more brightness than expected on that one.

Happy Friday, all!

PSA

Just visited shoebank and several closeouts I've been watching dropped in price since last night.

Right you are.

 

Gobi Suede 149

Mcgregor suede 159

Bleeker 181

Neumock red/green - 101

 

 

This might get out of control.  

 

 

Anyone think I can drop a 1/2 size in the Gobi?  

 

Wear a 9 on the 1 last in D (could have gone C).   Not too much room in the toes, but no 9B on Gobi.  Maybe go 8.5D?

There's a Williams in 9.5E for $181.60.  I've never seen anything from the Independence go that low.  Hell of a deal for somebody.

Just bought my first quality brand dress shoes. I'm used to the typical shoes from Macy's but wanted to upgrade and ended up with a pair of AE Park Avenues. I noticed a few things out of the box that have me concerned, the leather near the ankle is creased; and on one of the shoes, the heel has a piece sticking out (hard to explain). Please chime in with your thoughts.

Additional 20% off clearance firsts, as well. Some awesome deals, like the Rush Street for $157.60 before tax. I'm trying so hard not to pull the trigger.

Yes, the Shoebank is running some great prices.  

 

Also 20% extra off on clearance at allenedmonds.com,

so I opted for 1st quality snuffer Gobi's (thanks to you, @Kahuna75) for $181.

People love to take to the internet to complain about their experiences with different companies, but satisfied people are usually much more quiet. I dont know if I am allowed to post details yet, but I wanted to say that I have recently had an unbelievable customer service experience with Allen Edmonds. Literally, unbelievable.

I am awaiting confirmation from AE about posting information here, so hopefully I am able to share. Paul, if you are reading, thanks again and thanks to Deb.

Glad to do my part enabling....damn...I had no interest in buying anything but I have to look now....ugh

No 9B Gobi anywhere.  :(

post #55484 of 70737
Edit. The Bleeker street is also on sale

Double edit. I like the eagle river but the 222 last doesn't work for me
post #55485 of 70737

So many things in my size to want at the Shoebank. Worst time to have no spare cash:

 

Promontory Point Brown Football $101.60 

Black Hills Walnut $125.60

Cronmok Blue $125.60

Eagle River Brown $125.60

Gridiron Brown Football $125.60

Odenwald Brown $149.60

Bleecker Street Chili $181.60

Shaker Heights Brown/Olive  $181.60

 

I may just have to bite the bullet on those Promontory Points, especially at that price.
