The light toe and heel looks much more pronounced in the pictures. once I figure out which size to keep they will be going out for a commando toppy.

I will without a doubt be doing an mto of these soon with @garland. Hope more people buy these so this last sticks around.

Congratulations on your Odenwalds. I have them in black and love them. I had to go down a 1/2 size. I agree, they need a combination tap sole.

I think you posted a picture and remember how much better they looked ...or someone posted a picture of the black

My local menswear shoe store has the walnut Rogue in my size. Very tempted because it fits me like a glove. I am going to wait for Warwick as I have shoes similar to the Rogue. But the Rogue is beautiful in person.


Here is the Rogue with the Rush Street I am wearing today. I also have the Sanford which is close to the Rogue.

Also on my mind though are in no order:



- Green/olive loafers in either suede or leather.  No brand in mind yet.



- AE Lake Shore Dr. for the hell of it



- Suede shoe in the brown spectrum (tobacco/snuff or chocolate)



 



No purchases have been made yet due to my wife hitting pot holes and deciding to add things to our renovation which were not in the original budget.

Real comfortable.  Factory laces are useless.  I went with the TZ waxed 5mm laces, haven't come undone once.  I was re tying 3-4 times a day with the stock laces.  My leg is slim, uppers touch when lacing, so staying tight is a must. 

 

I've got two wears in mine. One included a full day at the office plus a half mile to and from and the laces had zero issues. I had the brown in. 

 

Coincidentally I did get another pair of shoes (Gap 1969 canvas sneakers) tha tcame with extra laces of the same length. They're two-tone brown/yellow like these sort of:

 

 

I also picked up some "khaki" colored laces to try to bring out some welt color, but we'll see. I'll take pics when I try them.

Don't mean to be a "traitor", but if you're having trouble with the fit, you gotta check out the Red Wing Beckman -

 

They run large (width and length).  Built like iron, and they get better as they age.  I love AE but these Red Wings were the best $340 I've spent in a while.

Also does anyone have pics of an AE boot with reverse welt? Has been on my mind recently.

Flat waxed Alden laces on my Eagle County that are on a split welt. Wearing them today for casual Friday. Best $127 shoebank purchase to date, I am not sure why the original EC does not get more love. My pair is probably around a year an a half old now, pretty minimal wear though still due to a growing rotation of footwear.

Wow those look nice broken in....even the white sole is not freaking me out.

Those are nice ...looking for more of a lower ankle boot...though...something a tad lighter in actual weight that I can get mucked up in spring/summer raid and mud...I like to have my nice boots and the boots for crappy weather....my brain is fried...

The Beckman is a great boot, but I think it's apples and oranges w/r/t the Odenwald.  The former is a pure work boot, whereas the latter (as is the case with even the most rustic of AE boots) is considerably more refined.

Half-double-decaffeinated-half-caf-with-a-twist-of-lemon - they're different, but I wouldn't put them into the pure workboot category. They're routinely compared to AEs wolverine 1000 mile.

Hah.  I do think we're talking about close calls here, but I would put Red Wing, Chippewa, Thorogood, and the like on one side of the line, and AE (including 1K), Rancourt, and their ilk on the other.

 

Having said that, not long ago at Brooks Brothers I saw some very attractive and unexpectedly refined Red Wing offerings, including these:

Agreed. I'm really regretting not jumping on these bad boys when I saw them on the Shoebank. They look fantastic.

Well in a new level of idiotic overbuying too many boots and shoes stupor....I completely forgot I had the Wolverines 1K Krause boots..went to go grab another pair to shoot and spotted the box......really can not believe my wife is right...I am a moron.... thought I sold these a while ago...funny thing is they look more color 8 which I want then russit brown.. Guess I do not need to source a #8 beater boot after all...

That is the heel I LOVE! I wish alden and AE would make their commando heel like that closed ...saw it in the store and almost bought it.

Kahuna - those wolverines rock the house!
