Walnut McAllisters today, my first pair of AE bought about I think maybe two years or so ago. I don't wear them nearly enough. I may experiment with some toe burnishing in the future on them.

These smartwool socks are definitely making the boot break in comfortable. :fonz:

Great boots! Congrats on the pick up.

Thanks!

 

As much as I love cordovan these days, it's hard to beat the comfort of calf.

Do we know what is going to be on sale for the Anniversary Sale in a few weeks?

My recent eBay score... Patriot shells for $160. Giving them a little bit of TLC this evening with the deer bone

Any other suggestions to bring these back to good health?

Entering the maze of sutble differences between the various Allen Edmonds lasts is always a bit of a fool's game from this side of the Atlantic, but I'm toying with the idea of a pair of Banchory longwings I've spotted for sale.

Made on the 234 last, which AE claim is quite a close relation to the 97.
So, if I'm an 8.5D with my MacNeils, should I be safe buying these shoes in the same size?
I also wear 8.5D in my 2 pairs of Sheltons.

They appear to be unlined, like the Neumok. Would this affect the sizing?

Insane deal JR! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif They look great already. What's the current condition? Do they seem dry?

Aside from damp wiping and relentless brushing, VSC has worked very well for me on my shell shoes. I have also seen strong recommendations for Bick 4 and Leather Honey conditioners, but have yet to personally try those options.

+1 for Bick 4. I've only been using it recently on my shell but I love the results! A coat of saphir renovateur wouldn't hurt anything either.

Thanks guys!  I'll definitely pick up some Bick 4 and give that a try.  They were a little dry when I got them, so I did have some VSC handy and applied some last night.  Overall they are in pretty good shape, just pretty good creases but I can't complain for the price I paid haha.  I'm new to the shell game so I appreciate the input!

Odradek - not exactly an apples to apples comparison, but for what it's worth, I took the same size in the Grayson, Manchester, Jermyn and lake shore drive. Tried the McGraw and dornach in the same size and the length and width were correct, but the last was just plain wrong for me. The toebox seemed humongous and I didn't like where it bent when I walked. This, combined with the 97 characteristic big heel just made it fit badly for me. Would say try before if possible. I couldn't see myself getting anything on this last.

Bick 4 is great stuff

In the last few minutes months, I've learned a lot about shoes here. And I'm starting to notice how few people actually think about their shoes.
I now notice that the vast majority of men are wearing shoes that don't match (black shoes with khakis, for example) or are wearing shoes that are terribly scuffed and rough looking.
It's a pretty sad state of affairs.

I went to a daddy daughter dance last night at my 5 year old daughters school. The invite said Formal Wear, I could not believe how many dads showed up in navy blazer with gold buttons, khaki pants and black and brown loafers. Some with a tie but the majority had no tie. I don't typically think of myself as that much of a style maven but I gotta say it was pathetic and simply could not believe it.

I was one of maybe 3 dads I saw that had on lace up shoes!
