I said it a little earlier but my feet dont every sweat and therefore dont get blisters or odor. I know its very odd. But I have beater loafers that I wear to bars that are 3 years old and they smell new.

I have merino socks but I never thought about wearing them in the summer...I'll have to try this out.


Lucky you! Do you go sockless in dress shoes too in the summer, or just wear no-shows, or what?

I notice a lot of sizes/widths are unavailable for the maritime and kirkwood. I assume demand has been much higher than AE expected. Hoping they replenish their stock soon . . .

The upcoming Tent Sale..

 

How does this compare to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale which I believe is coming up next month as well.

 

Thinking of getting the Dalton (walnut) but not sure whether to get it during the Tent Sale or wait for Nordstrom Anniversary.

 

Thanks!

Additionally...bought this J&Murphy Conard Wingip from the 6pm sale some weeks ago (my cheaper version of 'Strands' :-)).

 

Surprisingly, the shoes are VERY well made inc leather soles and stitching. I haven't treated it yet and after 2 weeks of 3-4 wear/wk, it's held up very nicely. No break-in and the leather is very very nicely done considering the price.

 

Almost makes me question why I paid $300 for my AE Cronmoks ;-).

Yea if I can I will and no socks not no shows. Every once in awhile my strands bother me when going sockless but that's only after extensive walking around like 2-3 miles at a time. I wore them walking around cobble stones in Paris last year and that was a mistake.

My mcallisters never give me issues.

It feels great air comes in and keeps my feet cool. It some times makes noise though like a suction cup.

The only ones I always wear socks with are my park aves, because they are black the only time I wear them is business professional or formal occasions.

Hard to know when we don't even know what's the tent sale will be. The difference will be nordstrom is 1st and AE tent sale is 2nds only

Thanks for confirming. An SA @ Short Hills told me this when I made the request.

I've picked up 2 pair of Kirkwoods from the Shoe Bank. I found my brannock size (11.5E) to be a bit snug on my little toe. I tried a 12D, which was a bit loose. I ended up going with the 11.5 E, feeling pretty confident that the CXL would stretch. After 3 wearings, they are perfect. I really like them. I have a pair of golden brown and navy. I'm actually wearing the navy pair today.

The only "blemish" I can find is the gold writing on the insole. It's not permanent. It stuck to my foot when trying on the shoe. I used a wet rag and wiped it away. All is good now.

Am I the only one who has no problem paying several hundred dollars for shoes but just can't get excited about a $100 belt?

I'm there, too. Belts and socks are items in which I economize.

I haven't bought a belt in like 5 years and have needed another brown one for at least 2. Just not something I can bring myself to purchase on a grad student budget.

Dunno, I've found that cheap belts can be terrible. Actually, I've been wondering of I could convince my wife to buy me one of those shell belts made by Rancourt for father's day.

I go through belts in a heartbeat if they use cheap leather.  And all dress belts under $70 tend to use cheap leather.  On the plus side, there's something very cool about being able to have a perfectly matched belt and shoes, even down to the brogueing.  If only AE made watch straps, that would be awesome.

Check out throne for watch straps. They are hands down the best leather straps
