Just what he told me, no clue why it took so long for them to come back though.

Well, dang, I should have still tried to call when they were $99 then! Goes to show you can't believe everything you read on the Internet. crazy.gif

Am I the only one who can see the return of BB models on Shoebank - pics and all?

 

Is this really a Thing?

 

Please - ANYONE - how does the 2592 last / Duke fit?


Pressed for time, but.... the 114 is like the most standard last AE uses - meaning the most true to size - no elongation, width is as expected, etc.  The 2592 is very similar but a drop more room up front in the toe box.  However, lined vs unlined and material make a huge difference.  With the Duke, my usual size 7D is huge - tons of room in the heel and too much width (since it's unlined).  So I'd say length is true to size, width of a D felt more like an E.  I own them but because they're so large I don't wear them too often.  Vibram sole is great though.  That's for the AE version, BB may be smaller due to poron but you should ask back in the jox.

Maybe. I had 2 pair of AE that had been resoled by a local cobbler. I called AE and they said send them in and they would see if they could be recrafted - both were recrafted by AE. Apparently it depends on how the resole job was done. If it was done correctly with welt redone, no glue, etc. they can sometimes recraft them.

Just my personal experience and that was about 5 years ago. They may have changed their policy. But give them a call and see what they say.

Perhaps a stupid question: why does AE refer to some shoes as "oxfords" when they are clearly bluchers/derbys? For example, the Rogue and the Oak Street are both called Oxfords. There are a few others as well. Are they using a different definition for oxford?

PSA: Looks like the best available color McTavish (dark brown) is currently on the Shoebank for $157. That's just $10 more than the khaki ones are going for. IMHO, the dark brown ones are definitely worth the extra cash.

 

Have at 'em, fellas.

I was lucky to snag a pair of the Shaker Heights boots, but quickly realized I don't need them. So I'm selling mine.

I haven't seen much appreciation for AE belts here, so here is mine-

AE brown gator belt in matte finish which I got during last RDA sale from shoebank. The belt is very smooth and has been holding up well till now..

I don't think this pic does those justice. I will post one this weekend. BTW, what is up with your lacing? Is there a reason you went "under and up" through the first set of eyelets?

Yes - I would most definitely avoid using the cleaner conditioner on colors like bourbon. I "ruined" a pair of dark chili burnished (bobs chili?) Fifth avenues that way. Perhaps there's a way to do it light enough that the burnish isn't removed as another poster noted, but I wasn't rubbing hard and I could see the burnish being transferred straight to my rag. FWIW my sales associate later warned me about not using cleaner conditioner on their burnished shoes, but not before it was too late for the fifth avenues. My bourbon flatirons are still looking great though wink.gif

I think the specificity of the term "Oxford" has evolved in the minds of most people over the years and now is widely, though imprecisely, used for any laced shoe. I think far too many people would not understand Derby means an open lace versus an oxford and would just be confused.
