Do AE shoes with rubber outsoles still have cork footbeds? I have a pair of stock Promontory Point boots with Dainite outsoles and removable insoles. The fit is rather tight with the insoles but without them the sole feels 'dense.'

Simply love my PA's.  Found the perfect size 12.5 D.  Snagged these firsts from Von Maur (got them to price match the Nordstrom sale at $288 last week).  :-)  Just waiting on my Bourbon Strands I snagged at the same time.

Does anyone have photos comparing the two colors? I searched without much luck. Thanks in advance!

This post from a while back seems appropriate. Additionally, I have brogue Strands and a bitter chocolate Quentin, and there's definitely a noticeable variation (think bourbon vs. dark brown). From what I can tell, the snuff is still lighter.

Thanks for posting the link!  Unfortunately, nothing that I am interested in at the moment.  I'll check online on Friday to see if there are any surprises

 

Anyone have or tried on the Road Warriors line?  I'm curious how they feel on feet and how they look in person.  I might have to check them out at the AE store some time; might be interested in the LGA for a work shoe when I photograph weddings.

I wanted to share my 201 last fit experience for anybody considering the Rogue or Warwick. I cannot guaranty you will have the same experience, but I wanted to share for some guidance.

I wear 9.5D in 95% of my AE's. The only exception is 9D in 1 pair McTavish, 1 pair Black Hills, and 1 pair Odenwald.

I tried both the Warwick and the Rogue at my local menswear / shoe store and in both the cases the 9D fit me best. The 9.5D was too big, especially in the toebox area. The 9.5D felt as if there would be some bad creasing due to excess space in the toebox.

Of the Warwick and Rogue (both 9D), the Rogue fit me best. The Warwick fit well but was tighter across the instep. Please note, I have a relatively high instep.

I saw them in person, but didn't try them on. The LGA looks nice, similar to the Player's. The sole is rubber, but doesn't look too clunky or anything from the side. I would actually consider getting them, but as seconds or on sale. The rest of the models...pretty ugly actually.

Here's a photo.



It looks like paint chipping. I've worn them less than 10 times.

I'll try to swing by the AE store at some point to check them out.  The sole and if they appeared clunky was my main concern.  I see they are at the Shoe Bank for $234.  And I agree, the LGA is the only one I'd consider out of the line...

Does anyone have sizing advice for the Randolph? Searching does not give any clear results. I would love to hear your experiences. That style of shoe is tough for me because of how critical the fit of the vamp is. Anyway, any insight on Randolph sizing is appreciated. Thank-you.

I have Strands in bitter chocolate and Neumoks and McGregors (acquired during the Nordstrom sale) in snuff.

 

Bitter chocolate is dark brown while snuff is a red-ish medium brown, there's no mistaking which is which.

 

I also have the Ralph Lauren Slatons in 'brown' suede which are manufactured by Allen Edmonds and appear

to be in another shade of brown that is somewhere in between snuff and chocolate, there's no red to it at all.

 

Some representative pictures of the shades... bitter chocolate:

 

Snuff:


brown:

Brooks Brothers has this shoe on sale without labeling (labeled only as "Calfskin Form Lace-Ups") though the interior shot of the shoe says, "Peal & Co." On sale now for $313 (regular price $448).

 

It looks remarkably like Allen Edmond's Carlyle shoe, though. Does AE make shoes under the Peal & Co. name for BB?
