Last I heard they had nearly 200 in production for orders so unless stores had any prior in stock to sell not sure anyone has them yet

@Kahuna75 No Sauk Dr for you?

Question for you - I have a bunch of Asus RoG laptops (5), plus my alienware. Was always big on mice but not keyboards. I have a cyborg, a razer (forget which one), and the g105. Picked up a g710 and was pretty impressed. I'm debating whether to get a second or spring for the Orion. What do you think?

Hi Guys,

Need some sizing advice on the Sauk Drive have never owned a shoe on that last.

My AE exp., I have a Gobi in 10D (great fit) , and Strand 10.5d (good fit but not great, a tad narrow in the toe box and IMO heel is too big in proportion to the toe box.),my instep is in the mid-low side.

Thanks in advance.

Funny you mention that I was just looking at the G910 as I like the new keys on it...I may give it a whirl. My only issue may be the key next to the control key as I copy and paste all day long when I work....may just switch keyboards out when I am not gaming. I am a fan of the mechanical feeling and silent keys for me are huge as I work with a headset on. I will probably grab one if it goes on sale.

@Neo1 probably not going to get the Sauk...as I have the Oxblood Dalton and a Long Branch in Waxy Brown..and AE Wolverine which I am pretty sure as someone had mentioned is the same leather...kills me though that is a steal of a boot. Considering the Frieberg though but still waiting on the size 12 Normandy so I am up in the air

I also like the Rothsay. I already have one in brown CXL but the harrier sole makes sooo much sense on those.
I also wish AE had a boot in between the Freiburg and their full-size boots. I would get a pair of Daltons or First Aves if they were an inch or an inch and a half shorter.

Would it be insane to get a pair and chop that much off?

probably would require a skilled cobbler to stitch it all back up...end of the day it could be done. Right above the fifth eyelet? and under the pulltab I would think for the cut

Me too! I will post pics when I get mine.

I like the idea of the Shannon Drive but I agree it would probably be best for a plain toe oxford in brown. Kind of like a mock boot look. I switched jobs and the normal attire in my office is very casual - lots of sneakers and boots. Something like this would be great in the office and make the walk around the city a lot more enjoyable.

My clinic just decided to issue black polo shirts (with company logo) to wear with denim, as standard dress attire. Any suggestions on shoes that would go well with a black polo and denim? Thanks in advance.

- I have a 10EE foot. I'll wear 10E to 10.5EEE depending on the shoe

- I live in the Northwest and have to walk in the rain 8 months out of the year. Not a lot, but across a parking lot to get to work

- My work is casual. I practically never wear a suit. Nice slacks and pressed shirt is considered very dressy there. 

- No AE stores anywhere near me. Nordstroms is the best I can do, and they don't carry any AE widths here. 

 

My preference for work shoes would be the Carlyle in bourbon, and maybe a Mora 2.0. Saw the Cornwallis - it looks great, but likely too formal for work. Maybe a walnut Strand. The problem is the Carlyle and Mora are both on narrow lasts. Any options for something less formal but still nice looking that would fit? 

 

Been reading since I posted this. Made some progress but still working on what fits and what doesn't. Posted a 2-3 weeks back that I got some Fifth Ave. Ok fit but not great. Maybe listened to the AE sales guy too much. 


What I have so far is:
- Fifth Aves (Dark Chili): look good, a little snug in the toe. May get more 65 last shoes but would like a better fit.

- Ashton (Walnut): surprisingly doesn't fit well. Pinches at the little toe on both feet, but particularly the right one. Comfortable enough to wear to work. Would not want to walk around in these all day. Would not do 678 last again. 

- Sanford (Walnut): Fit like a dream - if anything perhaps too much room up front. Finally found a shoe that looks good and fits well. 234 last seems to work. Only current shoe is the Addison which I don't really want. 

- Nashua (black): should be here today. I'll see how the 114 last does for me.

 

Given this any additional thoughts on styles to consider? Rubber sole would be helpful since I live where it's wet 8 months out of the year.

I've never been impressed with the turnaround time when getting a pair from the Customer Assistance Center. Compared to just about any other business I've ordered from, they are the slowest.

That's because CAC isn't a store. It's like 5 people who have to do everything from coordinate MTOs to manage returns to answer random questions, etc. they're always swamped. Any SA can have a store pulled from CAC, and do it faster because they'll get a commission. I'd call one of the outlets...

Well, Sauk Drive is definitely not a dress boot. If you've never seen Dublin leather in person, you'll know it's definitely not for dressy occasions. It's also awesome. The russet is browner than oxblood also...

I mean, wouldn't it just be a matter of them configuring the makeup for whichever size is ordered?

They don't exactly make them from scratch unless you place an MTO order. The uppers are pre-cut and stitched and kept in a warehouse until the size is ordered. Then they slap it on a last and stitch the sole on. Only the most popular base models have patterns drawn up in every conceivable size and uppers cut accordingly.
