Thank you.

Sick day for baby and dad, so this is the closest I'm getting to snapping my peppercorn shot o the day. Despite the heavy creasing on one shoe only and causing smurf feet, these are still seeing a good amount of wear.

Nice PC shots everyone! Here's mine for today. Won't be in the studio today, so here's a quick snap walking back from dropping the kids at school.

Thanks!

Yes, it's lighter than the brown shell. A bit more red/tan/gold undertones than with the brown shell.

Also, the First Ave boot looks great. Great pattern, great last!

I didn't care personally for Overlord, Cornwallis, or the Normandy. But that's just me.

They sort of did...with THIS odd bird SMU for Lands End—the “Stewart”—basically a Blue Suede Leeds with the same light-colored double-sole as those Navy Shell Macneils (“Drooooolllling again!”). Found it at the hated BCF—hated for the shopping experience, loved for the “gets”—for $99.00 in February. They broke in magnificently and became my Summer shoe with white pants. A really nice, nautical looking shoe that also works well with jeans. It was also the first AE shoe I ever went and got secondary-colored laces for.

 

 

 

Eyelets aren't a bright “brass”, but more of a deep pewter. Love this Goddamned shoe. Went all over town looking for a second pair for my younger brother. No dice. We wear nearly the same size and he had an event he wanted to wear them too. Did I loan 'em to him? Yeah. I did...

 

And I felt like I hadn't since my daughter was a teen out on a date—sittin' around, all tremble-handed with a tumbler of Johnnie Walker Blue, fearing they'd come home to me somehow all jacked up. But, little brother didn't let me down. he brought 'em back immaculate. LOL.

 

 

 

With the equally rare “Hollywood” Web Gem at left (with an orange (!) V-Tap Sole)

Incidentally, my corrected grain Sheltons are holding up well. They were in bad shape when I got them, but with regular cleaning and waxing, they looked a lot better. I've been wearing them weekly for about three years without noticeable deterioration.  


Those look great for so-called “beaters”. And it goes to show what a little bit of regular TLC can do for a supposedly middle-level-plus shoe. Duly noted. :)

I don't need a pair of navy suede shoes...but I would absolutely buy those if I had the chance. Great get, sir!

No AEs for me today, but I did manage to snap a pic of my BB Warwicks on my way to dinner last night.

 

PSA from PC: "Keep your hands clean, kids!"

 

 

I promise my next one will have coffee in it.

@misterellington those Stewart's are great! As you can see from a few posts back, I've got navy suede (and calf for that matter) covered. Also, are those shoes wide enough for you? it looks like a larger width might give you a better fit.

@Brown Dynamite well done, sir! The BB Warwicks are most definitely made by AE, so you're still in the game!

I was thinking the same thing on the loafers posted a little while back, appears he could go down a size and up the width for a more natural fit.

Foot surgery coming soon! Bunionectomy on BOTH footsies! Normally a D, sometimes an E on certain lasts—float between an 11.5-12 on length. Most Es leave me swimming 'round the heel area, but The Ds feel comfy as heck and will probably feel even moreso post my surgery, brought on by too many years of Disco Dancing, track and field, and football. I USED to be a 12.5-13 when I was a bigger boy, but once I lost the weight, the footsies “de-spread” and I went back to my natural size. On the Brannock as per the AE Rep at the 5th Avenue Store, I'm a solid 11.5D.

 

The bummer about the foot surgery? Gotta go with sneaks and casual stuff while I heal up. No pretty, close-fitting AEs during my recup time. :(

Oh dear. Be careful that they don't over correct your big toe. That happened to me on my left foot, making certain lasts like the 7 very uncomfortable.

When all is said and done, make sure you try to get some PT addressing your gait and posture. Bunions can be caused by tightness and trigger points in your calf muscles, and by falling arches. Since AEs don't use shanks for arch construction, you may have to look into inserts. Good luck!
