Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc... - Page 4605  

post #69061 of 70737

sizing help for the Mora 2.0's please!

 

Size 6.5E on the 65 last is too tight for me and I can not close the V

So I am either a 6.5EE or 6.5EEE.

What size should I get for the Mora 2.0 double monks?

Man I really want some shell Dundees. Hopefully they will go on sale sometime this year.

Does anyone know if it is possible to have a cobbler change a flat welt to a reverse-split welt?

Yes, it is possible. AE generally will not do it but a couple folks here got lucky. Try B. Nelson (http://www.bnelsonshoes.com/high_grade_shoes.asp).

To be honest, I'm not sure they are really Bourbon anymore.  I had trouble maintaining them with the AE Bourbon cream, so I switched to the Saphir Mahogany wax.  They are definitely darker than they were originally.

 

Though darker, they're still a wonderful mid-brown - yours have certainly become a color to emulate!

Seeing the explosion of pictures has inspired me to go through my phone to see what shoes I've taken pictures of.  Here's my contribution:

 

 

Burgundy Shell Cambridge

 

 

 

 

Bourbon Fifth Avenue

Bourbon strands today. I sanded the black edge dressing off and went with natural. It maybe too much of a contrast with the black welt. I may change the edges to chilli

Natty Dundees!!

Chili Lasalle

The First Avenues finally received a little maintenance. I'm now trying to decide if I should use bourbon or dark chili (or blue?) on the toe and heel. Hoping to cover up some of the minor striping.

Also, my Freiburg firsts arrived last night. Don't want to take away from the appreciations... but I think they will need to go back. Not sure why, but I am the magnet for lumpy footbeds. Seems like more then half of the last 10 shoes I've purchased have had some type of bump or divot.

The finishing on them isn't great: burnishing issues, few stripes, wrinkling uppers, some random darker spots, etc. I could live with all of this, as the shoe is a rougher leather and casual in style - but I can't get over the structural issue of the footbed.

It's ashame because I like the style. And with the extra eyelet and shape of the boot I can get them laced pretty tight,so I don't have the volume issue I was concerned about. Went with my 65 size.

No kidding! Gentlemen, thank you for making my small collection seem so, well, reasonable.

post #69075 of 70737
Can someone provide some insight if the Carlyle and Clifton fit same or different - I know they are both on the 108 last

Thanks
