Is that because they've just become too expensive?  Is there a chance we'll see something like a 2-for-$300 sale, or is that not even worth waiting for?

 

I'm considering a pair of wingtips, preferably longwings.  The Williams is terrific, though its not available in as many colors as some of their other wingtips.

Seeking either FACTS or OPINIONS... :)

 

I recently tried the Mora 2.0 and couldn't believe how comfortable it was on my foot. I've targed them in Burboun as my next acquisition.

 

I've also wanted to add an Oxblood to the mix. The only shoe I have considered for this is the Carlyle. Again, it was surprisingly comfortable when I tried it on, as it is on the same last as the Mora 2.0.

 

That said, I see the new Warwick is also in Oxblood. I already have the Franciscan in Chili, so the two look very similar to me on the surface.

 

If it were you, or if you were me...which would you choose...the Carylyls or the Warwick?

 

I'm targeting the 3/12 event and the April 9th sale for these next two purchases...

What are the details of the 3/12 event?

Look back a few pages, I posted it last Wednesday I believe.

 

Buy a pair of welted shoes full price, and get a free belt up to $98. Spring event at retail locations.

Carlyle and Mora, no question

I like the Warwick but the Carlyle and Mora is a better combination.

Been a while since I've posted here, been a bit busy and far away from the shoe world. I hope everybody is doing well, and I'd like to say welcome to any new members that I've not met due to my hiatus.

 

http://www.styleforum.net/t/461376/price-drop-allen-edmonds-8-5d-sale

 

^That's the main reason of my post, thought I'd post here as well to see if anybody was interested. All three pairs are in EXCELLENT condition, as those who know me know that I value my shoes more than I value my life. I'd prefer to sell all three at once, and the price is definitely in favour of whoever buys, rather than of me.

 

If this post is considered spam/against the rules, just let me know and it will be vanished. :)

The Warwick is not a good fitting shoe, something is amiss there. Strange because the new Rogue is on the same new last (201) and the Rogue fits great.

I haven't tried on the Warwick, but I have tried the Rogue and I own the First Avenue. I like the 201 last a lot.

Just got a pair of Weybridge seconds in and they fit fine, except they squeak a bit when I walk.  I have narrowed it down to the heal area.  It sounds like my heal is sliding a few mm and the friction is causing the squeak.  The leather interior lining appears to be darker than my Hales.  Could it be the conditioning of the Weybridge leather?  Has anyone else had this problem with this particular model or other AEs? Perhaps I would better fit with a half size smaller?

 

I don't want to waste money having shoes sent back an forth. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I like the 201 last too......on the Rogue. It doesn't work with the Warwick

I wonder where MWS has been...

 

Most of my knowledge about shoe construction has been from MWS and ColdIron :-)

 

Oh, I'm still around, just haven't had many reasons to post in this thread lately.  As you know, shoe construction is my favorite topic, so when the questions or topics related to that are few and far between, so are my posts.  I've been hanging out in the "Sole Welting" thread a good bit lately.

Great for you to drop by this thread again MWS. Maybe something that you could shed some light on, do you know more about the construction of the new comfort line that AE is about to release? I heard it's got removable insoles (correct me gents if I'm wrong here). Also I wonder what makes it lightweight? AE doesn't use steel shanks anyway and so I wonder what else they would change from the current comfort line which already uses rubber sole and foam insoles to further reduce the weight?

Another vote on this - was wondering myself. 

 

Granted, they are ae by AE so I guess my expectations are lowered, but could you also comment on the Concordia & Desoto?  I still couldn't believe AE would make something with leather that felt so thin like that - it felt like you could tear them apart with your bare hands.
