Maiden voyage of my new-to-me Daltons in Walnut Shell.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Yowza! Very nice pickup.
I've been mulling over selling mine as well but I just can't seem to get myself to do it. They don't get much wear and they're one of the few AE's I have left.
Edit: But they don't look anywhere as pristine as yours do, @rydenfan. All your boots look pretty much pristine!
Thanks all. They don't look quite as dark in person - I took these pictures on a dreary/grey/overcast day. Natural shell is much lighter than this Walnut shell.
I am looking to purchase two pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes in the future. Black and Brown/Walnut are the colours I am looking for. They will primarily be worn for formal occasions (Work, Formal Events etc).
I will be purchasing the Park Avenues in Black and possibly the same for Brown.
However, I do like the look of the AE Warwick in Brown.
My question is whether the AE Warwick Monk Straps are appropriate for an office? Or should I stick to the Park Avenues, possibly Fifth Avenue?
I think it looks kind of awkward, but that's just me. FWIW I have a pair and think they look odd with shorts. I'm going to sell them because that's what I bought them for. They may work, but on me they just seemed out of place. I also got mine first quality for $100 due to a pricing glitch (thanks Amazon)
I find myself wearing mostly navy or a medium gray suits or pants for most business meetings. I currently have black PA's, bourbon Daltons and Walnut strands. I really want to add something in the burgundy family but need some suggestions. I tried a pair of merlot mcallisters but found the color to be a bit too purple. They also had a manufacturing defect so they were returned. I've been searching the for sale boards for cordovan but haven't come up with anything in 10.5D.
Any suggestions on style and, more importantly, color?
Carlyle - comes in oxblood (cherry based color), and is dead sexy in person. The online pics really do not capture how great this shoe is.
