I agree with you that shoe fitting is not limited to two dimensions, but as a starting point using a reference that is arbitrary makes it hard to gauge.

We should start with Brannock and go with more specificity from there.

Took off today, so I'm fighting the heat in some Maritimes. Love the fit and comfort (after having a couple of pairs with significant humps in the footbed). My only beef is that these and my Kirkwoods discolor my socks or feet. Hasn't improved with more wears either.

Love the golden brown, I saw a pair in my size at the shoebank I might need to grab. I love my pair in Navy, they don't discolour my feet as they are natural leather coloured on the inside. They have been my go-to casual shoe this summer.

Interesting. My blue Kirkwoods are way worse then the Golden Maritimes.

Add me to the list of Bick 4 fans! My Dundees have always been on the dry side, even straight from the factory, and while I've applied VSC twice in the ~ 6 months I've owned them, they've still always been the driest shell I own.

Bick 4 was easy to apply and remove, and seems to have nourished the shell very well. I always apply product sparingly, and could probably have used more than I did, but it still left behind a killer shine after the requisite, fervent post-product brushing.



I hope everyone's week is going well, as always!

Yes! But only three here. I like my other pairs but the Daltons still bring some excitement.

The sun is setting on seersucker/spectators this season. Maybe once more after today.

$15/pair is still a bit much, doubt we'll see $8-$9 again, but I'm holding out for $10 or better.

 

I counted recently and have over 30 pairs...of AE...wingtips...but still have at least one hole that I plan on filling if we get a trunk show this year (Natural Shell Dalton).

Wondering where I fit in among the AE connoisseurs, I decided to do an inventory of my AE shoes:

- Ashland - 10E (my first pair, my second pair and subsequent pairs come 12 years after)
- Banchory grey
- Dundee shell
- Dundee 2.0 brown calf
- McAllister Bourbon
- Dalton Bourbon
- Leeds brown calf - 10E
- MacNeil 2.0 Chili
- PA brown calf
- McTavish Tan
- Gobi Snuff Suede
- Amok sand suede - should have sized up width wise to E, but managed to stretched it by inserting XL shoe trees in them.

Unless otherwise stated, they are all 10D.

I got someone on the phone right away and placed my Park Ave order from the Brookfield location. I'm still waiting for the shipping confirmation though. How long does that usually take for others? I placed my order on Monday.


No idea right now, but I ordered on the flash sale over the 4th of july (the one on the main site) and it took a while. I think the third day after I ordered I got shipping confirmation.

 

I still haven't gotten an email back form my inquiries a couple days ago, which are in Port Washington. They're probably dealing with a good deal of traffic with the sale, is my guess, so you'll have to be a little patient.

 

As for my attempts to get shoes, I called a couple more times and got voice mail every one. No response to my email, so I think I'm taking the other advice in the forum and calling Ben tomorrow. Glad to know any outlet can help, as the Port Washington store is the main one, is it not? Probably a different vibe there.

Good work. Bick 4 is great.

@Moose22, Ben's there alone on Fri. If it goes to the machine, call back. He'll be happy to talk to you.

Happy to be patient. It's just my first time ordering from Shoe Bank (AE for that matter) and when I talked to the CS rep on Monday to place my order he said I should get my shoes by this Friday or Monday. Got the email invoice, but crickets on the shipping notification.

The finish looks great.  Need to find a reason to try them on :)

@rc121 @Neo1 Re: suede Gobi sizing. I'm 9.5 on the brannock but 10D fits me just right on the 65 last. Tried the suede Gobi earlier this year. 10D were swimming on me. We tried a 9.5D and my big toe was just poking the front of the shoe. I probably needed a 10C but don't think they made 'em in that width. So I had to pass.
